Managing Risk Responsibly

March 2016

“At BNY Mellon, our risk culture is embedded in our core values. From a Human Resources standpoint, we want to ensure that we are selecting the right people with risk management in mind. It is important that we’re giving our people the right tools and support at every stage of their career to hold them accountable and that we reinforce how important it is to do the right thing at all times.”

Risk Management Doesn’t Mean Avoiding Risk

Our business involves taking smart risks and helping our clients do the same. We build trust through our risk culture, which is founded on the core tenet of personal responsibility — that each of us has an obligation to be aware of risk and manage risk across our company.

Risk Culture

How we think about and address risk defines our character and integrity.

A comprehensive risk management framework guides our decisions and actions. Our people are the most important component of BNY Mellon’s robust risk culture. Each individual contributes to strengthening that culture by doing what’s right, leading by example, behaving ethically, putting clients first and owning and understanding his or her respective role in managing risk.
