BNY Mellon picks up Irish mandate

BNY Mellon has scored a fund administration and securities lending mandate with Aon Hewitt on two of its Irish-domiciled fund ranges with assets of roughly £4 billion.

The bank will provide performance and risk analytics, securities lending and portfolio hedging to Aon Hewitt, which provides fiduciary management services to UK pension schemes.

George Mortimer, UK chief operating officer for Delegated Consulting Services at Aon Hewitt, said: “We were looking for an innovative solution to optimise our Irish fund structure, in a way that leveraged to the benefit of all our clients the $45 billion of delegated assets we have globally. BNY Mellon’s commitment to designing and implementing the right solution for us was a key factor in our decision.”

Hani Kablawi, EMEA head of asset servicing at BNY Mellon, said: “Our ability to take a fresh and innovative approach to providing a solution that can support Aon Hewitt’s growth plans across the region was key to their decision to select BNY Mellon. This new mandate will see us providing Aon Hewitt with a broad range of flexible solutions and services and we look forward to further developing our relationship with them.”
