Congratulations to the winners of The Boat Races

March 28, 2016

Congratulations to Oxford University, winners of The Cancer Research UK Women’s Boat Race, and Cambridge University, winners of The Cancer Research UK Men's Boat Race, which took place yesterday, Sunday, March 27, 2016.

In a world first, BNY Mellon and Newton Investment Management, donated their 2016 title sponsorship of The Boat Races, the annual challenge between Oxford and Cambridge Universities, to Cancer Research UK (CRUK), the official charity partner. This year’s event, now known as The Cancer Research UK Boat Races, trail blazed a new model for corporate sponsorship and demonstrated the very tangible organizational commitment we have to making investments today that drive a better future.

Mitchell Harris, CEO of BNY Mellon Investment Management, said: “We are proud to have worked with Cancer Research UK, whose work touches the lives of so many, on this year’s exciting and successful event. We were hugely impressed by the thrilling performances of the four teams who battled it out for glory on the water and congratulate the worthy winners. We hope that our role will encourage other companies around the world to follow suit and use their resources to make a genuine difference.”
