Investment Research

For more than a decade, we’ve pursued a fact-based, academic and investment-focused research agenda to help our clients optimize their investments.

The partnership of our research strategists with leading academics at State Street Associates has allowed us to bridge the gap between finance theory and investment practice. It has also helped us build rigorous indicators on investor behavior, risk and inflation that we can apply to the ever changing challenges our clients face.

State Street’s research agenda includes the following:

  • Investor behavior – suite of proprietary indicators that models trends in the flows, holdings and borrowings of institutional investors and tracks investor activity across geographies, asset classes, sectors and styles
  • Portfolio and risk management – quantitative, analytical and modeling techniques designed to help clients enhance returns, manage risk exposure, optimize performance, manage liquidity and cost, and monitor market turbulence
  • Online inflation – the State Street PriceStats Inflation and Purchasing Power Parity (PPP) series will give clients real-time insight into global inflation trends and currency valuation


Combining these inputs with our experience of global market trends, we produce a suite of strategy research that clients can apply to their investment decisions.
