BNY Mellon has secured Peter Salvage for its the newly-created role of global head of hedge fund services.

Salvage will lead and execute the long-term strategy to drive growth in BNY Mellon's hedge fund services business and work to further develop long-lasting partnerships for the bank in the alternative investment services industry.
