State Street research to help IFSWF

State Street Corporation has been appointed by the International Forum of Sovereign Wealth Funds (IFSWF) as one its two official research partners.

Established in 2009, the IFSWF is a global network of sovereign wealth funds which exchange views on issues of common interest and facilitate an understanding of sovereign wealth funds’ activities and the Santiago Principles.

State Street Associates (SSA), State Street Global Exchange’s research and advisory services business, will be the focal point in State Street’s partnership with the IFSWF. It has been assigned to two specific research projects on which it will collaborate with a working group of Sovereign Wealth Funds (SWFs).

Rod Ringrow, senior managing director and head of Central Bank and Sovereign Wealth Fund Sector for State Street in EMEA, said: “State Street has worked with IFSWF since its inception and we look forward to building on our relationship in our capacity as one of its two research partners.”

Will Kinlaw, senior vice president and global head of State Street Associates said: “The membership of the IFSWF includes some of the largest and most sophisticated investors in the world. As its research partner, State Street will draw on research, data, and analytics resources from across the firm that relate to long-horizon investing, asset allocation, and private market investments.”
