Learn About Our History

Whether it is pioneering low-cost index investing, creating the first US exchange traded fund (ETF) or being an early leader in active quantitative investing, our clients' investing challenges have been the catalyst of our innovation for over 40 years.


Our Investment Philosophy

State Street works with clients to understand their unique needs and objectives, and applies our disciplined, rigorous, research-based approach to help them meet a wide range of investment goals.


Understanding Multiple Dimensions

Creating successful investment outcomes starts with understanding the multiple dimensions of a client’s long-term objectives and liabilities.


Knowing Markets Aren’t Always Efficient

Due to behavioural biases, informational inefficiencies and limits to arbitrage, markets are not always efficient, leading to opportunities for excess returns.


Focusing on Asset Allocation

The primary driver of long-term returns is asset allocation.


Investors need efficient access to a broad universe of capital market exposure.


Focus should be on underlying risks, not asset class labels.


Achieving Capital- & Risk-Efficient Portfolios

A thoughtful and precise combination of market-, factor-, and idiosyncratic -risk, along with manager skill, are key to achieving capital and risk-efficient portfolios.
