BNY Mellon Expands Global Payments Infrastructure by Adding Foreign Exchange Payments

Published 
  • New functionality will significantly increase straight-through processing rates for clients

LONDON and NEW YORK – BNY Mellon, a global leader in investment management and investment services, has passed an important milestone in the continuing development of its global payments infrastructure with the launch of enhanced foreign exchange payment capabilities.

BNY Mellon’s Frankfurt and London branches have significantly increased the number of global currencies they can provide, with the total expected to exceed 120 currencies over time. Clients holding accounts in Frankfurt and London can use account balances in a single currency to instruct FX payments in various currencies as required.

Demonstrating BNY Mellon’s enterprise-wide approach to the development of new treasury services solutions, the new FX payments offering seamlessly combines BNY Mellon’s extensive FX capabilities with the speed, efficiency and reporting features of BNY Mellon’s new global payments infrastructure. Clients are provided with a host of payment initiation options, including BNY Mellon’s proprietary TreasuryEdgeSM electronic portal, EDI ASC X12, and SWIFT.

“This step continues the development of our new infrastructure and leverages its strengths as we look to build upon our leadership in global payment services,” said Michael Bellacosa, head of global payments product management for Treasury Services at BNY Mellon. “Partnering with BNY Mellon’s FX business to expand the range of supported currencies demonstrates how our technology investments and business strategy are delivering meaningful service improvements to help our clients succeed.”

“Our new global payments infrastructure is providing benefits to BNY Mellon clients that need to move cash across their investment activities,” added Frank Behlmer, executive vice president, global operations, with BNY Mellon’s Client Service Delivery group. “Our clients are now able to make FX payments seamlessly through our branches in London and Frankfurt. We are introducing new functionality for currency payments to enable us to better validate client instructions and increase straight-through processing rates. This will help us reduce third-party repair charges and increase the efficiency and speed of payment processing for clients across a broad range of investment services businesses.”
