BOSTON BNY Mellon Wealth Management is proud to announce that it has been named Best Private Bank in the U.S. for Customer Service by the Global Private Banking Awards. Now in its ninth year, the awards program is organized by Financial Times publications Professional Wealth Management and The Banker. The awards recognize and reward excellence in wealth management.

“This award affirms and reflects a key tenet of our approach – helping clients to succeed and meet their financial goals,” said Don Heberle, CEO of BNY Mellon Wealth Management. “This recognition also speaks to the quality and dedication of our people, who put the needs of our diverse client base at the center of everything they do.  We do not take this success and our 95% client satisfaction rating for granted[1],” stated Heberle, “and will every day continue to earn this recognition and deepen client relationships, particularly as client expectations continue to evolve.”

From May to July of 2017, private banks were invited to apply to the Global Private Banking Awards. Each institution provided growth and performance measures and an executive summary outlining the bank’s qualifications. The submissions were judged by an expert panel of 15 industry professionals based in North America, Asia, Europe and the Middle East. Banks were judged on the progress made in their business & growth strategies, their ability to boost inflows and profits, as well as their client relationship management strategies and adaptability.

The awards were officially announced at a gala dinner and ceremony held on Thursday, October 26 in London. The Global Private Banking Awards report will publish in the November issue of The Banker. Additionally, the quantitative data from award applications will be analyzed in the forthcoming annual Private Banking Key Performance Indicators Benchmark study, carried out by Scorpio Partnership.
