We've been building and managing some of the world's most successful index funds for 40 years. Our goal? To deliver cost-effective index return outcomes with no surprises or unintended biases.
We helped pioneer the indexing category by creating institutional-caliber index funds, and today, indexed assets represent the majority of our AUM and revenues. As the investment arm of State Street Corporation—which is entrusted with 10% of the world’s assets1 —we are built to devote significant resources toward supporting evolving client needs through product development, process improvement and infrastructure enhancement. In today’s fast changing world, that commitment to continued innovation matters.

Indexing: The Pursuit of No Surprises
For four decades, our disciplined, precise approach has helped us deliver index returns as expected by our clients.
We offer clients access to hundreds of index strategies across core beta, smart beta, ESG and tax-aware solutions. This includes a broad range of global, regional and country exposures, as well as a truly comprehensive selection of industries, sectors and alternative investments. These offerings are available in a range of different vehicles and domiciles.
Our broad range of offerings span the global Fixed Income spectrum: from developed market sovereigns, to complex exposures such as high yield credit and emerging markets, and everything in between. We work with clients to find the right strategy and vehicle to reach their investment goals.
Our SDPR family gives institutional investors access to a range of transparent and cost-effective equity and fixed income exchange-traded funds with tight spreads, deep liquidity and ample diversification.
