LONDON, May 12, 2017—BNY Mellon’s Pershing Limited has been named the Best Global Custodian to Private Client Business as well as winner of Best Outsourcing Solution at the 2017 WealthBriefing European Awards.

The Global Custodian category was awarded to Pershing in recognition of its strong compliance culture and sound regulatory approach to safeguarding client assets. The award recognises firms that have demonstrated innovation and excellence that have helped clients to focus on their business growth.

Pershing was also recognised for best Outsourcing Solution, testament to its experience, global scale and proven track record in serving premier wealth management houses. For example, Pershing has 250 technology specialists across five office locations.

Pershing’s solutions were specifically recognized for their improvements in efficiency across compliance, technology and operational functions, and allowing clients to meet the specific needs of their end customers.

“The safety of end investors' assets is at the core of everything we do, and the uncertainty of today’s fast changing market landscape makes this more important than ever,” said Geoff Towers, CEO of Pershing Ltd. “To be recognised as a market leader in these areas further highlights our commitment to the wealth management sector, and our drive to provide the most secure, flexible and innovative solutions to our clients."
