LONDON — BNY Mellon’s Pershing Limited has been awarded Best Strategic Platform Partner at the Schroders UK Platform Awards 2020.
Now in its fourteenth year, the awards showcase the best providers in the global institutional, wealth management and trusted adviser communities, recognising companies and teams that have demonstrated excellence in platforms and technology. Additionally, the Awards also recognise “new technology, new innovations and new ways of connecting with the investor”.
The UK Platform Awards judging panel commented on BNY Mellon’s Pershing: “The winner is strong on process, security and due diligence and they have expanded their range of products. One of the judges commented that their CEO is genuinely committed to issues such as equality and diversity unlike many who just talk about these issues.”
Geoff Towers, CEO of Pershing, commented: “We are delighted that Pershing has been recognised for the value it delivers as a trusted strategic partner. Our success is testament to the continued hard work of our teams, and their dedication to improving the service we offer clients despite the challenging year the industry has had.
“This year, along with many other industries, the wealth and advisory space has faced unforeseen obstacles as the fallout of the Covid-19 pandemic has transformed the way we live and work. This has manifested in the need to adapt quickly to a remote working environment, placing increased pressure on an industry already grappling with widespread structural changes driven by regulation, digital innovation and demographic trends. We remain committed to providing safety, certainty and greater efficiency to support clients in growing and future-proofing their businesses.”
Pershing was also named as the runner-up for the Best Institutional Platform Award.
Present in Europe for more than 30 years, Pershing is a leading provider of financial solutions to banks, broker-dealers, wealth managers and advisers, helping clients by providing safety, certainty and greater efficiency for their businesses.
