The Bank of New York Mellon Corporation (“BNY Mellon”) and Bloomberg today announced a strategic alliance that further integrates BNY Mellon’s data, analytics, and servicing capabilities with AIM, Bloomberg’s portfolio management, trading and compliance solution. The new connectivity streamlines data delivery between the two firms and enables clients to access BNY Mellon’s data and analytical workflow tools directly through Bloomberg AIM, delivering unique capabilities and insights to investors, technology leaders, and risk and operations professionals.
These integrated solutions, available today, will benefit clients across many core processes along the investment lifecycle. With automated connectivity and standardized data delivery between Bloomberg AIM and BNY Mellon, common clients will experience faster onboarding, higher straight-through processing rates and more efficient data exchanges. Clients will be able to leverage BNY Mellon’s industry-leading reporting and transaction applications together with AIM’s oversight functions, providing all the details and drill down capabilities to support settlement cycles and accurate tradable positions in one place.
The alliance links two of the industry’s leading technology and service providers for the benefit of a substantial number of mutual and prospective clients across the traditional asset management, hedge fund, and asset owner segments. In addition to these capabilities, the two firms are working together to drive additional simplicity, transparency, and insights into the investing and servicing lifecycle.
