Fast and Simple Account Opening. Trusted Market Intelligence.

BNY Mellon can help expedite your account opening process:

  • Dedicated Global Client Activation Team located in Singapore, Manchester and Pittsburgh helps you navigate through the market entry process from application to account opening
  • Our Online Portal keeps you informed of the latest account opening procedures, documentation guidelines and timeframes.

[New] BNY Mellon Bond Connect Triparty Solution

BNY Mellon is the first to launch a triparty solution mobilizing Bond Connect assets. This allows triparty clients to utilize their Bond Connect traded assets with their global pool of collateral as support, while conforming to the Bond Connect rules. Key potential benefits include:

  • Allow investors to utilize their pool of bond connect assets across 35 markets. This can help to reduce costs of collateral as investors can utilize these in secured financing transactions
  • Help investors to optimize global collateral portfolios
  • Help reduce operational burden by centralizing secured financing transactions and providing for the securities to be allocated in a ‘closed’ system, allowing independent valuation and risk management 

Bring Clarity to the Investing Process. Streamline Post-trade Processes. Support in Local Time Zones.

Our execution-to-custody service allows you to place Stock Connect orders during your time zone yet still meet the same day (T+0) simultaneous and irrevocable cash and securities settlement.

 

Upon trade execution, settlement instructions are issued by Pershing LLC* and FX via BNY Mellon standing instructions.

 

This front-to-back integration not only allows you to trade in China A-Shares, but also eases your operational challenges.

Flexible and Adaptive Custody Solutions. Timely Trade Management.

BNY Mellon provides multiple Stock Connect service models to meet your varying business needs while striving to ensure the models are resilient to risk and have effective control management in place to protect assets.

 

Our open platform can help you access sufficient funding and avoid settlement failure. This is particularly vital to China as failed trades within its A-Shares market are not permitted; and in the domestic bond market, any failed trades must be reported to both the regulator and the central depository.

 

The delivery of integrated front-to-back Order Management System (OMS) capabilities via our strategic alliances allow you to mitigate risks of failed trades by accessing near real-time securities and cash holdings. This minimizes barriers between the front-line and the processing of trade flows.

Access to a more Liquid Market. Enhance Mobility and Lower Funding Cost.

BNY Mellon provides multiple FX capabilities to suit your business needs:

  • CNY FX solutions across all China access schemes via our FX Program Trading desks and our Negotiated FX Sales desks in Asia Pacific, London and New York.
  • Onshore CNY FX Spot for Bond Connect
  • Onshore CNY FX Spot for China Interbank Bond Market (CIBM) Direct via our Shanghai Branch for central banks and sovereign entities

BNY Mellon can help collateralize your Stock Connect and Bond Connect assets for optimal efficiency. We can assist you with cost-effective financing solutions to deliver and ensure optimal collateral allocation and mobility.
