BNY Mellon expands partnership with SNB Capital in Saudi Arabia

BNY Mellon and SNB Capital have revealed a data management solutions collaboration in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (the Kingdom) to help build a robust and inclusive capital markets ecosystem.

The move builds on the two companies’ earlier strategic partnership to deliver securities services capabilities. SNB Capital will utilise BNY Mellon’s data platform within its IT infrastructure in Saudi Arabia.

Our collaboration combines the strengths of leading institutions to support the demands of Saudi Arabia’s growing financial sector and vision of a sustainable diversified economic ecosystem.

Rashed Sharif, CEO of SNB Capital, added:

Our leading role in growing and developing the Kingdom’s capital markets and the financial sector in line with Vision 2030 is highly dependent on having the right technology, capabilities and partners. This deployment reinforces our top market position when it comes to serving the complex data management and reporting needs of institutions and large asset owners in the Kingdom. The strength of our partnership with BNY Mellon will be a driver for continued growth in our Custody and Asset Servicing business.
