BNY Mellon has appointed Adam Gelder as Head of Financial Institutions for its Corporate Trust team in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA). Gelder will be responsible for the growth and development of the company’s Financial Institutions business in EMEA and reports to Robert Wagstaff, Head of UK Sales and Relationship Management at BNY Mellon.
Gelder brings a wealth of Corporate Trust experience to his new position, having worked at Deutsche Bank for the last 18 years in client service, relationship management and sales.
“We are committed to hiring and retaining the best people in the industry to support our financial institution clients and the growth of our Corporate Trust business,” said Dean Fletcher, Head of Corporate Trust EMEA at BNY Mellon. “Financial institutions, and in particular global systemically important banks, are core to our growth strategy both in terms of their proprietary business and their role as arrangers. They maintain a dominant position in the debt capital markets and constitute about a third of our Corporate Trust business in EMEA. Adam’s experience and expertise means that he is well placed to drive this strategy forward.”
BNY Mellon’s Corporate Trust business served as trustee and/or paying agent on more than 60,000 debt-related issues globally as of March 31, 2015.
