BNY Mellon Asset Servicing Lands a Back-Office Contract

Reported by Patricia Kelly

Before the ink dries on the sale of Philadelphia-based Delaware Investments – an affiliate of Lincoln Financial – to Australian owner Macquarie Group, the asset management firm chose BNY Mellon Asset Servicing on Thursday to provide back-office support.

The partnership calls for New York City-based BNY Mellon to handle all of the accounting, administration, and other back-office services for Delaware Investments' U.S. and Dublin-based mutual funds, institutional separate accounts, and other products.

According to a BNY press release, the firm intends to utilize its Eagle Star and Eagle Pace technology to fulfill its new back-office duties. Eagle Investment Systems, a subsidiary of BNY Mellon, specializes in financial services technology and services for data management, investment accounting, and performance measurement.

“Turning to BNY Mellon Asset Servicing to perform these important functions reduces our overall risk profile and makes our costs more predictable,” stated Phil Russo, executive vice president and chief administrative officer of Delaware Investments. “BNY Mellon's solid reputation in outsourcing, as well as the enhanced functionality and efficiencies we derive from the Eagle platform will enable us to deliver even greater value to our clients.”

“For nearly a decade we've built a strong relationship with Delaware Investments, and this new mandate takes us to the next level,” stated Lou Maiuri, global head of outsourcing for BNY Mellon Asset Servicing. “Especially in today's environment it makes sense for many investment firms to focus more on managing assets and client relationships – the things they do best – while relying on service providers like us to administer the back-office and maintain the technology investment.”

In August 2009, it was announced that Australian bank Macquarie Group would acquire Delaware Investments in a $428 million cash deal set to close on or around December 31, 2009. Delaware Investments, which had approximately $135 billion assets under management as of September 30, 2009, is currently owned by Lincoln Financial.
