Meet Mona

 

Mona leads BNY Mellon’s Asset Servicing business in Saudi Arabia and serves as the Head of Custody and CEO of BNY Mellon Saudi Financial Company (conditional upon Capital Market Authority business commencement approval). Mona is currently working on the company’s incorporation and on expanding our presence in the country, where she will be managing day-to-day client service delivery.

What excites you about working at BNY Mellon?

 

I’ve worked within the Asset Servicing industry for the past 13 years, but as one of the largest and most advanced custodians globally, I am especially excited to be working for BNY Mellon.

 

What does International Women’s Day mean to you?

 

IWD is an opportunity to thank everyone who has contributed to the advancement of gender equality throughout history, today and in the future.  For example, Saudi Arabia’s 2030 vision focuses on women’s empowerment through a number economic reforms to advance women’s economic participation. Progress like this is an example of why celebrations such as IWD are so important.

 

Tell us how you’re living our Integrity value at BNY Mellon.

 

My role requires me to work very closely with clients and those relationships are most importantly built on trust and integrity. These are values that are at the core of our company’s DNA, and I live by them every day.
