The pace of change across the financial sector is faster than ever. As new technologies unfold, regulations evolve and fierce competition takes shape, we’ll work with you to provide the institutional expertise and local knowledge you need to manage change — confidently.

In a rapidly changing marketplace, the strength and stability of your financial services provider is more important than ever.

State Street has been in the Canadian marketplace since 1990 and recently celebrated our 25th anniversary. As the Canadian market has grown, State Street Canada has grown along with it and there’s no sign of slowing down.

Our latest research showed Canadian investment institutions are optimistic about their prospects for future growth. According to industry executives, 86 percent of Canadian respondents are confident they’ll achieve their growth targets over the next five years.* To thrive, however, they’ll need to fill gaps in their investment, operations and innovation strategies. Only five percent of Canadian respondents say they have a fully digitized operating model. And just 28 percent believe their leadership is highly effective in embracing viewpoints that challenge existing organizational thinking.*
