"Our goal is to create an enduring high-quality investment organization that builds on our record of investment success and we look forward to working with Mellon to deliver high-quality back office support to our clients.''
"We are delighted to be recognized for our extensive experience in helping firms to launch asset management operations," said Jack Klinck, Mellon vice chairman and president of its IMS group. "We are continuing to invest extensively in our global infrastructure so we can serve asset managers in their operations around the world."
