Ms. Neal lands at BNY Mellon from Deutsche Bank, having most recently served as its global head of listed derivatives, markets clearing, and fixed income. She has held several senior roles at Nomura International, Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS), Fidessa, and Goldman Sachs.
According to Mr. Arledge in a recent statement on the appointment, “The Markets Group’s extraordinary success demonstrates how well the Group’s extensive and complementary capabilities align with the needs of investors in today’s evolving market landscape.”
“Michelle’s leadership experience, especially as it relates to innovation in electronic trading and her expertise across the entire spectrum of Markets Group activities make her the perfect leader to continue to drive the Markets Group’s strong performance,” he added.
BNY has been in the news recently after it suffered a massive breakdown in its net asset values (NAVs) system. The glitch was estimated to have affected nearly 5% of US mutual funds and ETFs last week, totaling around $404 billion in assets.
