BNY Mellon Launches Universal FX


October 25, 2023

New platform helps clients manage and centralize their portfolios, regardless of where they custody, prime broker or settle trades


Builds on OneFX suite of solutions and banking capabilities for all FX trading, hedging and cross-border payment activities


NEW YORK, Oct. 25, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- BNY Mellon (NYSE: BK) announced today the launch of Universal FX, a new foreign exchange (FX) platform that meets client needs to manage execution across their entire portfolio and access market-leading price transparency. Universal FX supports BNY Mellon clients across all market segments, such as investment managers, corporates, hedge funds and wealth managers, as well as helping them navigate the industry transition to T+1 settlement.


Today, the investment management industry often manages portfolios across several providers resulting in an inconsistent FX execution experience. Through Universal FX, clients can now manage their whole portfolio, irrespective of where they custody, prime broker or settle trades. The solution provides access to Developed Market and Emerging Market currency execution, enhancing the FX experience for clients globally.


"Clients often have fragmented portfolios, causing friction, lack of transparency and inconsistency while accessing services across pricing, execution and post-trade," said Jason Vitale, Head of Global Markets Trading, BNY Mellon. "With the launch of Universal FX and our existing OneFX product suite, our clients can now control and customize their portfolio in one place – gaining 360-degree insight, providing a seamless experience across the entire execution process. This also comes at a unique moment as clients seek streamlined solutions to adjust to the T+1 settlement cycle." 


This new offering builds on BNY Mellon's OneFX suite of innovative solutions and banking capabilities for all FX trading, FX hedging and cross-border payment activities. OneFX is designed to  seamlessly connect the entire FX spectrum, ensuring clients around the world have access to the latest new features and functionalities from BNY Mellon as they become available.
