BNY Mellon has named Marina Lewin head of sales for its asset servicing business in the Americas.
In her new role, Lewin will be based in New York and report to Samir Pandiri, CEO of Americas asset servicing & alternative investment services. Lewin will continue to lead global sales for the company's alternative investment services group.
Lewin has been with BNY Mellon since 2000. Prior to that, she was with JPMorgan and Deutsche Bank and has held a variety of roles in the securities industry, including in operations management, product management, and product development. She’s also had extensive experience leading major business integration projects.
“Our AIS business has more than doubled its assets under administration the last four years, with Marina a major force behind that growth,” said Pandiri in a statement. “As institutional investors continue to make alternatives a larger core of their portfolios, we’ll see a sharing in the kinds of services we can offer clients on both sides. Services like prime custody also point to the growing need among hedge fund managers for wider custodial capabilities.
BNY Mellon merged its two investment services businesses—global custody and hedge fund administration—earlier this year. The firm has more than $525 billion of alternative assets under administration and custody.
