LONDON, October 3, 2011 — BNY Mellon, the global leader in investment management and investment services, has extended its existing relationship with Eureko B.V. to provide global custody and value added services for group assets valued at EUR38 billion (U.S. $50 billion).
With operations in 12 countries across Europe and more than 20,000 employees, the Eureko group is a privately-owned financial services group registered in the Netherlands that offers a full range of insurance and related services: life and non-life cover, pension products, health insurance, banking and asset management.
In addition to global custody, BNY Mellon will provide fund and investment accounting, fund administration, regulatory reporting, performance measurement, compliance monitoring, transfer agency and cash management solutions.
