In the rapidly changing financial industry, effectively aligning investment operations is a primary focus for investment managers seeking to streamline their operations, reduce risk, contain costs and achieve overall growth. As a result, managers are increasingly looking to their investment service providers to take on responsibility for the back- and middle-office activities that can sometimes drain resources and reduce efficiency. A pioneer in investment operations outsourcing, State Street has earned a global reputation for its leadership in providing customized outsourcing services to institutional asset managers, and today administers US$8.7 trillion in middle-office assets as of June 30, 2012.
