Financial Strength - June 30, 2016

Pershing’s core financial strength provides the foremost measure of the protection of assets held in our custody. Pershing's parent company, BNY Mellon, is a leading provider of financial services for institutions, corporations and high-net-worth individuals. Pershing’s financial strength does not protect against loss due to market fluctuation.



Pershing has over $1.5 trillion in global client assets. (Pershing LLC and global affiliates)


BNY Mellon

BNY Mellon has $29.5 trillion in assets under custody and/or administration.


Evaluation and Segmentation of Assets

As required, Pershing segregates investor assets, which are fully paid-for, from its own assets. Therefore, in the unlikely event of the financial failure of Pershing, investors’ fully paid-for assets will remain separate from Pershing’s own assets.
