Alternative investments firm Talon Asset Management has completed the sale of its wealth management business to the Bank of New York Mellon.
The Chicago-based firm, which retained its hedge fund and private equity businesses, agreed to sell the unit in April. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

"Our new location, capably headed by Mike, will enable us to better serve our current and prospective clients in the region."
