About the Study

In mid-2019 State Street Global Advisors surveyed senior executives with asset allocation responsibilities at over 300 institutions. They included private and public pension funds, endowments, foundations and official institutions. Respondents are directly involved in or influence asset allocation decisions.

The survey was conducted by a combination of telephone interviews and online. The results were analyzed and collated and comprehensively supplemented by a series of in-depth interviews with senior institutional investment professionals.
