New banking industry designation reflects most recent FImetrix survey of more than 600 banks in nearly 100 countries

NEW YORK, May 9, 2013 — BNY Mellon, the global leader in investment management and investment services, has been designated a Distinguished Provider of global transaction banking services.

Based on interviews with senior level executives at 647 banks in 97 countries, the FImetrix survey asks participants to rank service providers on more than 20 attributes related to operational efficiency, customer service technology, product range and the skill sets service provider employees. The survey identifies which attributes have the greatest influence as overall satisfaction predictors, and weights those attributes in determining a Global Satisfaction Score.
