BNY Mellon’s Curtis Arledge and Vince Sands have joined the board of the firm’s affiliate, HedgeMark International.

The two replace two other BNY Mellon execs, Craig Messinger, executive vice president and head of global markets trading and Brian Ruane, CEO of alternative and broker-dealer services.

Arledge, with 25 years’ experience in the asset management industry, is vice chairman of BNY Mellon and CEO of BNY Mellon Investment Management, which includes the company’s asset management and wealth management businesses. He also sits on the firm’s executive committee.

Sands is deputy chief executive officer of BNY Mellon Asset Servicing, responsible for the U.S., Canada and Latin America asset servicing businesses which provide trustee, custody, accounting, risk analysis and other services to institutional investors.

“BNY Mellon's guidance and counsel has been significant in the growth of HedgeMark, and the addition of Curtis and Vince to the board is further confirmation of the company’s commitment to the future success of our company,” said Kenneth S. Phillips, founder and CEO of HedgeMark.

HedgeMark was founded in 2009 and offers what it calls the first “end-to-end hedge fund managed accounts platform."
