BNY Mellon Wins Award for "Best Collateral Management" in Asia-Pacific

Company steadily investing in its collateral solutions to help institutions impacted by regulatory change and the need for and effective deployment of collateral

HONG KONG, December 17, 2013 - BNY Mellon, the global leader in investment management and investment services, has been awarded the accolade for 'Best Collateral Management' in AsianInvestor magazine's 2013 Service Provider Awards.

Dominick Falco, Asia-Pacific head of Global Collateral Services, BNY Mellon, said: "We are honoured to be regarded as the company setting the industry standard for excellence in collateral services in Asia-Pacific. We thank the judges for this highly coveted and respected recognition."

This award follows BNY Mellon being named as 'Collateral Manager of the Year' in Asia Risk magazine 2013 awards in November 2013. The company received this accolade for helping clients meet localised liquidity requirements and global liquidity needs through its collateral management platforms in Asia-Pacific.

Looking ahead to 2014 and trends in the collateral services space, Falco noted: "Regulators are increasingly mandating additional requirements for collateral in order to reduce the risk of negative systemic events impacting the market. Accordingly, these mandates are triggering an unprecedented need for and effective deployment of collateral around the world."

"The challenge is having the infrastructure to 'unlock' these assets, which is where BNY Mellon can help. We will continue to work closely with clients, regulators and the industry to develop innovative solutions that address emerging collateral needs," added Falco.
