BNY Mellon settles complaint over fees

State says bank overcharged

Bank of New York Mellon Corp., which administers the state pension fund assets, has agreed to cut its fees by $15.5 million over nine years to settle complaints that it overcharged Massachusetts on foreign currency conversions.

Under the agreement announced Monday, the custodial bank also said it would pay the state $100,000 to reimburse the secretary of state’s office for its investigation. Secretary of State William Galvin previously alleged that BNY Mellon overcharged the state by $29 million for converting international investments into dollars over the past decade.
