Merger of Equals: The Integration of Mellon Financial and The Bank of New York (C)

Senior executives must evaluate the seriousness of the risks and identify alternative ways of integrating the two firms, while safeguarding the technologies that process and clear a substantial fraction of the world's financial transactions.
