BNY Mellon & Mischler: Re-Defining Our Bond

As a boutique investment bank with boot prints extending across the primary and secondary debt capital markets, including investment grade, ABS, MBS, Government agencies and Municipal/Public Finance sectors, Mischler’s capital markets team is proud to maintain long-standing relationships with counterparts at each of the industry’s primary investment banks and lead underwriting and syndicate groups. Today, we’re particularly proud of the close working relationship we maintain with BNY Mellon, the oldest banking corporation in the U.S and the largest deposit bank in the world with nearly $29 trillion of assets under custody and/or administration and $1.6 trillion AUM.

BNY Mellon is also one of the Fortune 200’s leading advocates of veteran support programs, and through VetNet, its Employee Resource Group, this dedicated unit exists to promote the professional development and advancement of veterans and members of the broader military family. Today, it has a membership of approximately 600 people across six regional chapters in the US and UK.

But, were it not for the perseverance of BNY Mellon’s UK-based Business Development Exec Charles Thompson, this story could not be told and the now international news media story below would not have crossed the air waves.

Towards providing ‘advance color’ re the clip below, BNY Mellon’s  Charlie Thompson is a former professional rugby player who, after migrating to the world of banking, has quickly become known across the BNY Mellon platform for bringing along the skills that rugby players are best known for, which are synonymous with the qualities that BNY Mellon is long-recognized for in the course of serving its constituents: integrity, unbridled determination and tenacity.  It is those qualities that led to a remarkable discovery on behalf of Mischler Financial Group Managing Director Rick Tilghman, a former US Marine who, while serving in Vietnam was awarded not one, but two Purple Hearts and a Bronze Star With Valor. Rick is now one of the municipal bond markets’ leading elder statesman who joined Mischler in 2014 to oversee our firm’s Public Finance Group.

The reel below tells the story. On behalf of Mischler family member Rick Tilghman and our entire firm, we extend our gratitude to Charlie Thompson and we offer a special salute to BNY Mellon’s Colleen Krieger, VP of Corporation Communications for bringing this story to the front page and further extending to the global financial community via this link. We thank you for your service and your camaraderie.
