Newton and BNY Mellon pull together for Cancer Research UK

Newton Investment Management and BNY Mellon are proud to sponsor the Oxford and Cambridge Boat Races. Our sponsorship tenure has seen some ground-breaking firsts. Most notably in 2015, the move of the Women’s Boat Race to the Championship Course in London, thus gaining it equality in stature and funding with the men’s race. In 2016, in a world first, we donated our title sponsorship rights to Cancer Research UK thereby creating the Cancer Research UK Boat Races. This has given unprecedented brand awareness to Cancer Research UK. In 2017 we are focusing all our efforts on pulling together to raise vital funds for Cancer Research UK in order to help beat cancer sooner.

This year’s Boat Races are on 2 April 2017 – the women’s race is at 16:35 and the men’s race is at 17:35. TV coverage is live from 16:00 on BBC One.
