Expansion in Edinburgh for financial services firm
BNY Mellon is expanding its Scottish workforce by adding 60 jobs.
The administration and oversight positions will be in its Edinburgh office on Blenheim Place.
The investment management company, which provides advice to financial institutions and high-net worth individuals, will now have around 650 staff in Scotland.
It is understood a number of the jobs will be working on a major new client account which BNY has recently won.
Tim Keaney, BNY Mellon chairman for Europe, said: "Edinburgh is one of our business key centres, and the investment we have made to build upon our existing presence here, both through our ongoing recruitment programme and the refurbishment of our Blenheim Place offices, underlines our continued commitment to the city and to Scotland.
Anne MacColl, Scottish Development International chief executive, said: "That one of the worlds best known financial institutions plans to expand its presence in Edinburgh is a real testament to the strength of Scotlands financial services offering, and sends a clear message to the global financial community that Scotland has an abundance of talent and opportunity in this field."
Alan Thornburrow, Scottish Investment Operations chief executive, said: "Asset servicing is a vital part of the Scottish financial services landscape and this announcement is a further endorsement of our global expertise in this area."
