TORONTO, March 25, 2013 /CNW/ - CIBC Mellon has been rated the best sub-custodian in Canada in the 2013 Global Investor/ISF sub-custody survey, ranking first in the "unweighted" and "weighted by importance" tables. 

"CIBC Mellon performed well in the Global Investor/ISF sub-custody survey, with clients scoring the company particularly highly in the settlement, dividend collection, and client service/relationship management categories," said Alastair O'Dell, editor, Global Investor/ISF magazine. "CIBC Mellon's strong performance in this year's survey demonstrates that the company is delivering great client service as it helps global investors navigate the unique features of the Canadian investment environment."

"Global investors rely on their local market asset servicing provider for more than settlement and safekeeping: they are looking for on-the-ground perspective, relevant market news, and insights into domestic industry changes that may impact their businesses," said Alistair Almeida, vice president, business development and relationship management, global financial institutions, CIBC Mellon. "We are pleased to see our commitment to delivering great client service recognized in this well-regarded survey, and we thank our clients for their participation."
