About the Research

State Street commissioned the Economist Intelligence Unit to survey more than 400 asset owners and asset managers, to gather insights into how they are using investment data and analytics. The survey, which was conducted from August to September 2013, included 81 alternative asset managers. Among all respondents, roughly one-third were based in North America, one-third in Asia Pacific and one-third in Europe.
