  • #1 - Best Global Cash Management Services in Asia-Pacific (Overall - Medium)

  • #1 - Best USD Cash Management Services

According to Asiamoney, a record-breaking number of corporates and financial institutions voted in this year's Cash Management Poll, making it the largest survey of its kind in Asia-Pacific. In all, 725 financial institutions and 5,089 corporates participated. The poll received particularly strong response rates from China, Malaysia and Thailand.

"Our treasury services business in Asia-Pacific is really gathering momentum, and accolades such as these show just how far we have come in a very short space of time," said A. Richard Brown, Managing Director, BNY Mellon's Treasury Services business in Asia-Pacific. "We believe our strength lies in our focus on providing outstanding service quality, and our positioning as a true partner with local banks, rather than trying to both serve them whilst also trying to compete with them as a local bank."

Setting out his ambitions for the future, Brown added: "At BNY Mellon we have a very simple goal – to be considered the leader in all the financial disciplines in which we specialize and in all markets in which we operate. In Asia-Pacific, we will continue to build on the strong foundations we have established with the goal of achieving deeper penetration across the full spectrum of treasury and payments products. Our proposition - that we are a stable, strongly rated bank with a sharp focus on working with partner banks to help them grow their businesses - is proving to be a compelling draw for institutions both in Asia and from around the world."
