The Bank of New York Mellon Selected As Statewide Custody Provider-continued

February 23, 2012 - The Washington State Treasurer's Office has selected The Bank of New York Mellon (BNY Mellon) as the next statewide securities custody provider. This appointment is effective April 1, 2012, through March 31, 2016, with an optional three-year extension.
