Advancing the future of finance

In 1789 our company made the first loan – $200,000 – to the fledgling U.S. Treasury after the Revolutionary War. In 1792 we became the first company listed on the New York Stock Exchange. Since then, BNY Mellon has worked to create innovative financial solutions to help build a more resilient financial system. 

 

Today we continue to advance the future of finance by providing leading data and analytics capabilities and paving the way in advancing real-time payments.
