At BNY Mellon, we’re invested in our people. You may know us as the investment services and investment management company that cares for much of the world’s assets.

Or you might recognize us as one of the world’s top 10 investment managers.* Or you’re familiar with our global leadership in almost every aspect of servicing financial assets. Or perhaps you’ve heard about our more-than-230-year history of driving change in the global financial markets. As the investments company for the world, BNY Mellon is all of those things and more. But what we’re most proud of is our people — more than 50,000 individuals around the world — whose dedication and expertise set BNY Mellon apart, power investment success and, above all, improve lives through investing.

When you combine the efforts and energies of our people, the result is the BNY Mellon Way: delighting clients, relentlessly curious, always responsive, with unquestioned integrity, and managing risk responsibly.
