Research Update from BNY Mellon Treasury Services Focusing on the New Transactional Ecosystem to Debut at Sibos 2011

Research continues BNY Mellon's emphasis on solutions that help clients succeed in a changing environment

LONDON and NEW YORK, 15 September, 2011 — BNY Mellon, the global leader in investment management and investment services, today announced the launch of the most recent update of its research into the changing relationships between local banks and global processing banks. The new research material recaps how the increasingly sophisticated needs of commercial clients in areas like trade finance, liquidity, global payments and client service are creating a global transaction ecosystem with increasingly high levels of interconnection and interdependence. BNY Mellon's research shows how new relationships with global processing banks can allow local banks to play a positive and distinctive role in the new ecosystem. Breaking new ground from a presentation standpoint, the new material has been summarized in a series of on-line videos.

Since the financial crisis of 2008, BNY Mellon's Treasury Services research has focused on the needs of both local banks and their commercial clients to identify new revenue streams, lower their costs and enhance their risk management. Whilst technology is key in all three areas, these challenges have also inspired new business arrangements. Previous BNY Mellon white papers have shown how constructive collaboration with global processing banks has proven to be an attractive strategic alternative for local banks. BNY Mellon's 2011 research focuses on how adoption of the manufacturer-distributor model in three key areas of treasury service — trade finance, payments processing and liquidity services — can give local banks the connectivity and client service resources they need to deliver end-to-end solutions in tune with the new transaction ecosystem.

"Sibos provides the perfect opportunity for us to share important research findings with others in the new transactional ecosystem," said Alan Verschoyle-King, Global Head of Sales & Client Management, BNY Mellon Treasury Services. "In preparing this year's material, we decided to make our findings available not just as printed reports. We've also prepared a series of videos that summarize and personalize our findings. Our new videos feature a representative group of Treasury Services advisors talking about their experience helping clients succeed in a healthy, growth-oriented transactional ecosystem. The settings for the videos show the beauty of flourishing ecosystems, and provide memorable framing for some very important business concepts."
