Lessons for asset owners

May 2020

Investors understand that great uncertainty still lies ahead with the pandemic.

With the gradual restarting of economies, it is worth pausing to consider how asset owners have fared thus far and what lessons they are drawing from the new abnormal. In a recent roundtable, several senior leaders at State Street Global Advisors all agreed that these are challenging times for asset owners. But when markets swoon as dramatically as they did in March, they stressed that State Street’s execution and liquidity prowess, and deep investment management expertise and insights are key to helping institutional investors adapt quickly.
