BNY Mellon completes acquisition of Talon’s wealth management business

RELATED TOPICS​

BNY Mellon has completed its acquisition of Chicago-based Talon Asset Management’s wealth management operations, and has named Managing Director Michael DiMedio regional president of the wealth manager’s first Chicago office.

The acquisition of Talon’s wealth management business adds more than USD800 million in assets under management to BNY Mellon’s wealth management business. Talon is one of the region’s premier independent investment managers.

"This acquisition represents a significant step in BNY Mellon Wealth Management’s growth as we move into the third largest wealth market in the US," says BNY Mellon Wealth Management CEO Lawrence Hughes. "Our new location, capably headed by Mike, will enable us to better serve our current and prospective clients in the region."

DiMedio has been with BNY Mellon for more than 10 years. Most recently, he has been based in the firm’s Mid-Atlantic region, where he served as managing director of portfolio management. His appointment as president is effective immediately and he will continue to serve on the board of BNY Mellon Trust of Delaware. He earned his juris doctor degree from George Mason University in Virginia and has 17 years of experience in financial services.

BNY Mellon Wealth Management’s Chicago office includes former Talon principals Terry Diamond, Alan Wilson and Edwin Ruthman, as well as newly appointed Senior Director Steven Appell, who represents the firm’s family office services group in the region.
With this transaction Talon clients will enjoy several benefits, including: broader global asset management opportunities; increased access to alternative investment opportunities; enhanced technology and reporting capabilities; and expanded private banking and wealth planning services

The new wealth management office is among several Chicago-area BNY Mellon businesses that employ nearly 450 people in  asset servicing, treasury services and other businesses.

Terms of the deal, which does not include Talon’s private equity and hedge fund businesses, have not been not disclosed.
