Annual Growth Readiness Study

New Routes to Growth

May 2019

With intense pressures from slowing global GDP, rising competition and shrinking profit margins, investors have developed a new growth mindset.

Our annual Growth Readiness Study* shows that 67 percent of survey respondents are taking a more targeted approach to operational expansion. Whether investors are looking to fundamentally re-engineer their systems or take an incremental approach, our research helps them prepare for the changing landscape and integrate emerging tech in a way that best meets their needs.


*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.
