Those clients are based around the world, and include pension funds, corporations and charities and, via our parent company BNY Mellon, individuals. With offices in London and New York, we have £54.6bn (as at 30 September 2016), including assets managed by Newton Investment Management Limited as dual officers of Newton Capital Management Limited and The Bank of New York Mellon.
