A leading provider of financial services to institutional investors worldwide

As one of the world's leading providers of financial services to institutional investors, we are a global organisation with a deep commitment to the markets and clients we serve. Since our entry into the European market in 1970, we have built a strong presence in the region and today we have approximately 8,800 employees* throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Our local expertise enables us to offer clients a complete range of financial services across the investment spectrum, including investment servicing, investment research and trading, and investment management.

State Street in Poland

Since establishing our Kraków operation in 2007, we have grown rapidly and now employ more than 2,000 local professionals. These talented employees provide a range of complex investment servicing solutions, including end-to-end investment fund accounting, derivatives processing, securities pricing, financial reporting and hedge fund administration.

Our expertise in Kraków provides our clients with the tools and support they need to make the most of their investments. In 2009, we opened our office in the Kazimierz district and in 2012 we further expanded by opening our Bonarka office. This move helped underscore our long-term commitment to Poland and our plans for growth. As a centre of excellence supporting our businesses across Europe, we are committed to the continued development of our Kraków operation, and are continually looking for talented people and opportunities to expand the work we carry out.
