BNY Mellon ETF Models

Outcomes Focused

Model portfolios crafted to meet
targeted client outcomes

We offer model portfolios designed around a client’s desired outcome.
They give financial professionals the flexibility to take a holistic approach
and target a particular investor’s goals.

Key to achieving our models’ targeted outcome objectives are three pillars.

Client Outcome Focused

Our ETF models are built to help meet the specific needs of investors: growth, income, and stability, with an emphasis on risk management and low cost implementation.

Comprehensive Approach

Our models seek to provide broad asset class diversification across equity, fixed income and alternatives. Client assets are managed by BNY Mellon and a carefully curated group of best-in-class investment managers, each of which has passed an extensive due diligence review.
