Rohan Singh joins BNY Mellon to lead Asia Pacific servicing


BNY Mellon has appointed former Northern Trust executive Rohan Singh as its new Asia Pacific head of asset servicing.

Singh will also join BNY Mellon’s Asia Pacific leadership council and extended leadership team, chaired by David Cruikshank.

In his new role, Singh will drive the execution of growth opportunities for the Asia Pacific asset servicing business, leveraging BNY Mellon's technology platforms, including the NEXEN digital investments ecosystem and Eagle Investment Systems, and enabling clients to build their businesses, gain better access to information, lower operating costs and achieve shared economies of scale.

Samir Pandiri, executive vice president of BNY Mellon and CEO of asset servicing, said: “Rohan Singh brings nearly three decades of asset servicing experience, working within large organisations across Asian markets and demonstrating a proven track record of increasing the management and relationship skills under his leadership.”

“His expertise and industry knowledge will be critical as BNY Mellon builds on strategic growth opportunities within alternative investments, exchange-traded funds, real estate, private equity and middle office solutions in the region.”

Asia Pacific chairman Cruikshank added: “The asset servicing business in Asia is a key focus for BNY Mellon, which through our team of experienced professionals helps to provide a breadth of investment services and access into Asia for global asset managers and institutional investors.”

“We continue to see huge opportunities in the region where BNY Mellon is well positioned to assist global investors gain value from the numerous growth opportunities and pleased to have Rohan steer our asset servicing business to the next level in Asia Pacific.”
