February 19, 2018

BNY Mellon’s Pershing Limited* [Pershing], a leading provider of global financial business solutions, today announced that its assets under custody and administration (AuC) grew by over 20% in 2017 to reach £63 billion as at 31 December 2017.

The increase in AuC has been fueled by the growth of Pershing’s clients’ businesses, with acquisition and consolidation activity in the wealth management market an important factor in driving asset growth.
