Annual Growth Readiness Study

Human + Machine =
Alpha Advantage

June 2019

Emerging technology is taking investment intelligence to the next level.

But new tools are only as effective as the people who use them. Our annual Growth Readiness Study* indicates only 58 percent of institutions are satisfied with the quality of their data-driven insights. And an overwhelming 87 percent of respondents say their workforce needs better education on technology adoption. Investors must carefully blend human and machine intelligence to gain a competitive edge.


*The State Street Growth Readiness Study 2018 was conducted by Longitude Research in July and August of 2018. Respondents included 516 industry executives from 19 countries, spanning investment, operations and distribution roles, and representing institutional asset owners, asset managers and insurance companies.
