BNY Mellon Recognized as Best International Transaction Bank in Asia-Pacific

Recognition Provided by The Asian Banker Magazine and Advisory Council of the Asian Banker Transaction Banking Awards

HONG KONG, 23 May 2012 — BNY Mellon, the global leader in investment management and investment services, has been recognized as Best International Transaction Bank in Asia-Pacific. The recognition was awarded by The Asian Banker magazine as part of The Asian Banker International Achievement Awards for Transaction Banking 2012.

Selection is based on strengths in cash management, payment and trade finance services, corroborated by scores on a survey of correspondent banks in the region. The survey measures the extent and depth of correspondent banking relationships, as well as overall satisfaction. The award was presented last month at The Asian Banker Summit 2012 in Bangkok, and coverage of this year's awards appears in the May issue of The Asian Banker.

"We've repeatedly emphasized the indispensable role of local and regional banks as part of the global transaction banking ecosystem," said A. Richard Brown, managing director for BNY Mellon's Treasury Service group in Asia-Pacific. "Strengthening the ability of client banks to succeed in today's demanding global environment has been a strategic focus for the past several years. The Asian Banker award is an important validation of our efforts in that regard, and will motivate our product and sales & relationship management team to continue building on our success — and that of our clients — going forward."
