“We are excited to announce this strategic alliance with NCB Capital and look forward to working together to support the financial and social agenda the Kingdom has forged as part of its transformation, by sharing capabilities, resources and practices via our new alliance.”

BNY Mellon had $37.3trn in assets under custody and/or administration at the end of June 2020.
