Change is an overarching theme among the keynote speakers scheduled to address the NICSA’s General Membership Meeting this October in Boston. Robert Mathisen, managing director, segment executive and head of US Financial Institutions at BNY Mellon, is no exception. He embraces change in his work every day.

As one of the world’s largest global custodians and a systemically important financial institution (SIFI), BNY Mellon is often a first call for regulators working through complexconcepts. This constant contact has helped the firm embrace regulation as an opportunity. Mathisen will share insights from those exchanges along with the benefits of an open dialogue with regulatory agencies.

With the industry shifting its emphasis from institutional to retail customers, BNY Mellon has enhanced the support it provides to investment managers that are refocusing their efforts. Mathisen will discuss how firms can leverage technology to re-evaluate business models. Enhanced technology also can provide additional benefits, such as helping manage balance sheets more aggressively to reduce costs and turning distribution into more of a science than an art, he said.

Mathisen will also touch on related trends including the bank’s perspective on cybersecurity, disruptive innovation, and timing decisions associated with moving into emerging markets. Regulation and technology come into play for all. Come hear Robert Mathisen’s opening remarks at 9 a.m. on Thursday, October 29 to find out more.
