Why Invest With Us

BNY Mellon Investment Management is one of the world’s leading investment management organizations and one of the top U.S. wealth managers. Our business encompasses BNY Mellon’s affiliated investment management firms, wealth management services, and global distribution companies.


We are BNY Mellon Investment Management

At BNY Mellon, having 230 years of experience has taught us a profound lesson about investing: Progress begins with a forward-thinking idea.



BNY Mellon Investment Management operates under a distinctive model designed specifically to stimulate, assess and share forward-thinking ideas with our clients around the world.

Why? We believe that diversification goes deeper than the selection of funds in your portfolio. Because if your investment strategies all come from the same mega-manager firm, they are at risk of being shaped in a big investment strategy meeting where insights and ideas could surrender to groupthink, and portfolios may be created with an undiversified view.

There is a better way. At BNY Mellon Investment Management, we believe in specialist investment boutiques where enlightened thinking flourishes. Each of our investment boutiques has deep expertise in specific areas of the fixed income, equities and alternatives spectrum.  Each boutique follows its own independent investment approach, thus avoiding the dangers of blind consensus.  So your portfolio can benefit from multiple perspectives and a higher level of diversification. 

We stand ready to share our insights and expertise with you.


Started by Alexander Hamilton in 1784, BNY Mellon is one of the longest-lasting financial institutions in the world. We have endured, been innovative and gone on to prosper through every economic event and market move over the past 230 years.
