Overview

State Streets Global Markets delivers foreign exchange services tailored to the needs of international equity and fixed income investors, hedge funds, commodity trading advisors, currency overlay managers, leading asset owners and central banks. These services, focused solely on the needs of institutional investors, are driven by proprietary research, sophisticated global coverage, liquidity and trade execution, and technology.

State Street Global Markets' FX sales traders, expert in the specific currency-related needs of institutional investors, guide clients in the use of State Street's unique portfolio allocation and risk management technologies, and of our research predicated on proprietary investment flow metrics representing about 15% of the worlds tradeable assets. These new tools can be incorporated into both discretionary as well as quantitative investment processes.

State Street Global Markets clients can take advantage of new risk measurement technologies, as well as our award-winning portfolio flow research. Examples of available risk tools include proprietary measures of within-horizon probability of loss and our Risk Budget Tool (RBT) which enables currency investors to convert optimal portfolio allocations into Value at Risk assignments.

Our fact based metrics of investor behavior research includes State Street's Foreign Exchange Flow Indicator (FXFI), which measures cross-border currency forward flows, illuminating investor demand for and supply of 11 developed and 15 emerging market currencies. Our Portfolio Flow Indicator (PFI) demonstrates the demand for equities in markets around the world by modeling and animating global equity flows in near-real-time frequency.

These proprietary flow indicators are blended with other macroeconomic and currency indicators in the work of our worldwide strategy teams, in London, Boston and Sydney who advise clients and produce regular research publications such as Investment Climate, Global Research Insight and our flagship currency strategy piece, Global Portfolio Strategy (GPS). GPS provides currency managers with a recommended currency overlay for developed market currencies with updates every other Wednesday.
