BNY Mellon Appoints Global Head of BNY Investments and Wealth


BNY Mellon has appointed Jose Minaya as the new global head of BNY Investments and Wealth, effective September 3. Minaya will report directly to President and CEO Robin Vince and join the firm’s executive committee. This leadership change follows Hanneke Smits' decision to retire, although she will remain as chair of BNY Investments until the end of 2024 for a smooth transition. 

Minaya joins BNY from Nuveen, where he served as president and chief investment officer, overseeing over $1 trillion in assets. His career at TIAA began in 2004 as a fixed income portfolio manager after working with AIG, Merrill Lynch, and JPMorgan. Minaya is also an active member of the investment and academic communities, serving on the Board of Trustees of Manhattan College and the Board of Advisors of the Amos Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth. Additionally, he is involved with several companies and charitable organizations, including Moody’s, the National Forest Foundation, and the Investment Company Institute.
