State Street Institutional Small-Cap Equity Fund - Investment Class SIVIX

Considering the risks: A principal risk of investing in the Fund is the risk that the value of equity securities may decline. Securities with different characteristics tend to shift in and out of favor depending upon market and economic conditions. Investing in securities of small-cap companies may involve greater risks than investing in larger, more established companies. While stocks have historically outperformed other asset classes over the long term, they tend to fluctuate over the short term as a result of factors affecting the individual companies, industries or the securities market as a whole. These and other risk considerations are discussed in the Fund's prospectus and summary prospectus.

Before investing, consider the funds' investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses. To obtain a prospectus or summary prospectus which contains this and other information, call 1-800-242-0134. Read it carefully.

The Fund's investments are subject to changes in general economic conditions, general market fluctuations and the risks inherent in investment in securities markets. Investment markets can be volatile and prices of investments can change substantially due to various factors including, but not limited to, economic growth or recession, changes in interest rates, changes in the actual or perceived creditworthiness of issuers, and general market liquidity. The Fund is subject to the risk that geopolitical events will disrupt securities markets and adversely affect global economies and markets. Local, regional or global events such as war, acts of terrorism, the spread of infectious illness or other public health issues, or other events could have a significant impact on the Fund and its investments.

Fund Objective

The State Street Institutional Small-Cap Equity Fund seeks long-term growth of capital.

Investment Strategy

The Fund uses a multi-sub-adviser investment strategy that combines growth, value and core investment management styles. The investment adviser will allocate the Fund's assets among the sub-advisers to maintain exposure to a combination of investment styles, but may have larger allocations to certain sub-advisers based on its assessment of the potential for better performance or to address capacity constraints of a particular sub-adviser, among other reasons. As a result, this orientation will typically produce a portfolio that does not materially favor value or growth style investing, and allows the Fund the potential to benefit from both value and growth cycles in the marketplace. Stock selection is the key to the performance of the Fund.

Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate. Upon redemption, shares may be worth more or less than the original cost. The current performance may be higher or lower than the quoted performance. All results are historical and assume the reinvestment of dividends and capital gains. To view SEC standardized performance select the most recent quarterly period ending March, June, September or December. All other periods shown are non-standardized performance and are not valid without SEC standardized performance.

The performance figures shown above reflect the impact of fees and expenses for the funds' share class, and include the reinvestment of all income dividends and capital gains distributions, but do not include the effect of taxation. State Street Global Advisors ("SSGA") may have reimbursed certain expenses or waived certain fees during the periods shown. Absent those reimbursements, the Fund's total return or yield would have been lower.

On July 1, 2016 State Street Corporation, the parent company of SSGA Funds Management, Inc., and State Street Global Markets, LLC acquired the asset management and advisory services business of GE Asset Management, Incorporated, the former investment adviser to the Fund. As of that date, SSGA Funds Management, Inc. became the investment adviser to the Fund and State Street Global Markets, LLC became the distributor for the Fund. Effective May 1, 2017, State Street Global Markets, LLC was renamed State Street Global Advisors Funds Distributors, LLC. Any information, data or performance provided prior to that date is that of GE Asset Management, Incorporated.

None of the Funds or share classes (if applicable) assess a sales charge upon the purchase or redemption of shares.

SEC Yield is calculated by dividing the net investment income per share earned during the period by the maximum offering price per share on the last day of the period.

The Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses shown for each Fund share class reflects the total annual operating expenses of the Fund share class prior to any fee waivers or expense reimbursements, as provided in the most recent Fund prospectus. Actual Fund operating expenses will change over time based on Fund asset levels and other factors and may be higher or lower than those estimated for the current fiscal year.

Index returns are unmanaged and do not reflect the deduction of any fees or expenses. Index returns reflect all items of income, gain and loss and the reinvestment of dividends and other income as applicable. You can not invest directly in an index.

This report is supplemental sales literature. If applicable it must be preceded or accompanied by a prospectus, or equivalent, and disclosure statement. For each fund with at least a three-year history, Morningstar calculates a Morningstar Rating based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a fund's monthly performance (including the effects of sales charges, loads, and redemption fees), placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of funds in each category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. (Each share class is counted as a fraction of one fund within this scale and rated separately, which may cause slight variations in the distribution percentages.) The Overall Morningstar Rating for a fund is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five- and ten-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. Past performance is no guarantee of future results.
