232 years ago, Alexander Hamilton founded The Bank of New York, now BNY Mellon.
Hamilton’s genius – his unequalled ability to both envision the future and create the mechanisms to make it happen – is our legacy. It has powered our growth into a global investments company with a continuing commitment to insight and innovation.
BNY Mellon prides itself on remaining true to the values on which it was built and to the visionary, innovating tradition of its brilliant founder. It’s this founding spirit that has propelled BNY Mellon forward over the last 232 years.
