BNY Mellon appointed as global custodian by The State Pension Fund of Finland

BNY Mellon, a global leader in investment management and investment services, has been appointed by Valtion Elakerahasto (VER), The State Pension Fund of Finland, to provide global custody for all of VER's direct equity and fixed-income instruments, which are valued in the region of EUR 7.5 billion.

BNY Mellon's ability to provide a straight-through processing interface to VER's existing technology platforms was one of a number of factors that influenced the pension fund's decision.

General Counsel Mrs. Tiina Tarma at VER, said: "We initiated a transparent review of global custody service providers which ranked candidates on a weighted basis across a range of key criteria. A thorough analysis of the results saw BNY Mellon returning the highest overall score and accordingly we have selected the company to be VER's new global custodian."

Hani Kablawi, head of Asset Servicing for Europe, the Middle East & Africa at BNY Mellon, said: "We are strongly committed to supporting our clients in Finland, and our track-record underlines our ability to offer leading European institutions like VER a compelling mix of innovative solutions, high quality service, local expertise and global insight."
