As MMI marks its 20th Anniversary this year, our mission remains the same as in 1997 – to enable, facilitate, and shepherd the growth of investment advisory solutions. In these extraordinary times for our industry, MMI has set an ambitious agenda of programs and activities to help members navigate the ever-changing landscape and stay ahead of emerging trends. But we can’t do it on our own.
As an industry association, primarily funded by membership dues, MMI relies on the engagement and support of our members. That is why we are so pleased to welcome BNY Mellon as our exclusive Titanium Partner for 2017. This strategic partner sponsorship distinctly recognizes BNY Mellon’s significant commitment, financially and emotionally, across MMI’s programs.
Started by Alexander Hamilton in 1784, BNY Mellon is one of the longest-lasting financial institutions in the world, with a rich history of innovation and thought leadership. BNY Mellon and its affiliated companies – including Pershing LLC, Lockwood Advisors, and Albridge – are long-time supporters of MMI and have been actively engaged with our organization over the years. In fact, Lockwood was one of our founding members and John Brett, Managing Director and Head of Global Managed Investments at Pershing LLC, is a member of the MMI Board of Governors and the Co-Chair of the 2017 Sales & Marketing Leadership Summit.
Like MMI, many of your firms no doubt enjoy business and professional relationships with the entities and individuals within the BNY Mellon family. Our organization looks forward to partnering with BNY Mellon and leveraging their resources and expertise on behalf of all of our members. We are very grateful for their vote of confidence and financial support as MMI celebrates 20 years of service to the investment advisory solutions industry.
