BNY Mellon to acquire fund management technology leader Milestone GroupThe Bank of New York Mellon Corporation BNY Mellon has announced it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Milestone Group, a leading provider of fund management technology.

The deal comes a year after the two companies formed an alliance to create a suite of oversight and contingent net asset value (NAV) services for asset managers and asset owners seeking independent oversight and backup NAV capabilities. Terms of the acquisition were not publicly disclosed. The closing of the transaction is subject to customary conditions and approvals and is expected to occur in the second half of 2021.

“This transaction with Milestone is the latest demonstration of BNY Mellon’s commitment to support clients across the investment lifecycle and provide clients with open and flexible digital solutions that enable them to optimize, scale and grow their businesses. We gain both industry-leading technology as well as the expertise that Milestone is known for globally. This is a significant step in our continuous evolution — blending leading edge technologies and services to deliver greater efficiency and value for our clients,” said Roman Regelman, BNY Mellon’s CEO of Asset Servicing and Head of Digital.

Milestone’s pControl platform is recognized as an industry leader in fund and investment automation. BNY Mellon, through the acquisition, will advance the digitization and automation of core accounting and asset services, delivering increased accuracy and timeliness. It also will expand BNY Mellon’s digital offerings and core capabilities, adding OCIO services, cash allocation and fair value control solutions to the existing suite of NAV solutions.

The benefits to BNY Mellon’s clients are numerous, including:

  • Bolstered resiliency and transparency packaged in a seamless digital experience
  • Access to a leading platform and an array of digital solutions; all supported by experienced leadership and BNY Mellon’s established reputation as a long-standing trusted provider
  • The flexibility to choose from existing and new end-to-end solutions that add operating model choices, strategic product capabilities and industry connectivity

“We’re excited about becoming part of BNY Mellon and are committed to making this a seamless experience for all of our clients. We are proud of the reputation we have built at Milestone over the last two decades and the industry innovation we’ve delivered for asset managers, fund administrators and asset allocators including pension funds, life companies, fiduciaries and multi-asset product providers. We have made great progress collaborating with BNY Mellon to deliver best-in-class solutions, and the synergies we will be able to achieve together to provide new and exciting solutions to the industry is a thrilling opportunity,” said Geoff Hodge, Executive Chairman of Milestone Group.
