Operational Reliability

As the world’s largest custodian and one of the largest investment managers, we play a significant role in well-functioning global markets.

Global Impact 
With a dedicated business presence on six continents, 35 countries and over 100 markets, BNY Mellon delivers global scale at the local level. As a Global Systemically Important Financial Institution (G-SIFI), we are one of only 29 financial institutions designated as essential to a functioning global economy.

Business Continuity
Our centrally coordinated business continuity program is designed with the goal of allowing critical operations to continue under various circumstances, including significant power outages and natural or human-made disasters. We conduct regular, enterprise-wide stress tests on our systems, which helps us asses our ongoing ability to meet client needs.

Transaction Execution Quality
We provide value to clients by executing transactions properly and safeguarding client data. In 2013, we expanded the use of our enterprise architecture platform, which we designed to enhance the reliability and efficiency of our technological infrastructure. We aim to run smoothly 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Our efforts center on systems availability, business continuity, transaction quality and resource efficiency.
