Developed by an Asset Manager
State Street is a global titan of asset management, with more than $2.8 Trillion in AUM (as of March 31, 2019)* across more than 500 different strategies. Our indexes are developed in-house and leverage 40 years of indexing heritage and the collective expertise of some 150+ professionals in 7 hubs across the globe.
Indexes are not just a product to us: as a pioneer of index investing, we have extensive experience implementing them, and we understand how details like rebalance dates and frequency can erode or preserve investor wealth. We have applied this experience and provide a suite of indexes built by an asset manager for asset managers.
Our indexes provide a comprehensive and unbiased barometer for their respective market segments because of the transparent, rules-based approach with which we construct them. Indexes are reconstituted at appropriate intervals to ensure continued representation of the market.
We currently provide a broad array of factor-weighted and capitalization-weighted indexes, across the emerging and developed worlds, and covering the entire capitalization spectrum.We also construct focus or niche indexes that enable more-granular and targeted exposure selection. The consistent construction methodology behind our indexes ensures a perfectly modular index line-up.
The foundations of our mission will not expire. We will always pursue responsible investing as a means to enable economic prosperity and social progress. We will continue to develop proprietary indexes that adhere to this mission and embody it. To let us know your thoughts, comments, or suggestions about our mission.
