The Cancer Research UK Boat Races, supported by BNY Mellon and Newton, took place on Sunday 27 March on the River Thames in London and were broadcast live on the BBC. A replay is available on the official Boat Races website. Congratulations to Cambridge, winners of The Cancer Research UK Boat Race and to their women's reserve crew Blondie, winners of the Women's Reserve Boat Race. Congratulations to Oxford, winners of The Cancer Research UK Women's Boat Race, and to their men's reserve crew, Isis, winners of the Men's Reserve Boat Race.
In a world first, BNY Mellon and Newton Investment Management donated their title sponsorship of the annual Oxford and Cambridge Boat Races to Cancer Research UK, the chosen charity partner of the Boat Races Company Ltd. We are proud to support The Cancer Research UK Boat Races and pioneer a new model for corporate sponsorship.
BNY Mellon has sponsored the Men's Boat Race, which takes place annually between the crews of Oxford and Cambridge Universities on the River Thames in London, UK, for the past three years. During this time, a significant contribution to charities has been made through fundraising, volunteering and donations. In 2015 we helped to achieve a historic first by bringing gender parity to the Boat Races, working with one of our investment management boutiques and sponsor of the Women's Boat Race, Newton Investment Management, to bring the women's race to the same course and on the same day as the men's.
BNY Mellon is invested in innovation and corporate social responsibility. By donating our title sponsorship to Cancer Research UK, the world’s largest independent cancer research organisation, our investment can effect greater societal change in 2016.
