Trustees

Client needs are becoming increasingly sophisticated as asset management continues to evolve. We support a wide range of value-added services through our global network of experts and powerful technology. Along with conventional trustee services, we provide flexible support for trust creation in foreign currencies, emerging growth markets and alternative investments, as well as additional areas that have shown rapid growth.

Outsourcing

We’ve supported fundamental business operations for asset management firms and life insurance companies for nearly twenty years. Strategically incorporating outsourcing into your business model can reduce staffing costs and system investments while allowing you to focus on key initiatives.

Our streamlined processes help institutional investors make informed investments in global markets without having to enter into individual country agreements.

Message from Top Management  

Since establishing our business in Japan in 1991, State Street Trust and Banking Co., Ltd. (SSTB) has focused on meeting the asset servicing needs of institutional investors.

2018 marks a key milestone as we successfully incorporate the Global Markets division into SSTB. The GM business functions formerly were operating as State Street Global Markets (Japan).  SSTB can now seamlessly offer a broader product line enhancing the client experience.  By bringing the two entities together, we can maximize our synergies.

Our offices in Tokyo and Fukuoka help leverage the full range of capabilities available through State Street’s global network. We use our global expertise along with our clear understanding of local regulatory requirements, business practices and customer expectations to provide innovative data-driven solutions.

Our success is measured by the success of our clients. With over 25 years of market experience, we are committed to helping our clients succeed on a global scale.
