This focus translates to a solutions-based approach in providing clients with the best research, technology and investment options. Our clients are as diverse as they are exacting, and include corporations, public funds, endowments and foundations and third party distributors.

SSgA has a presence in 16 countries and 25 cities worldwide including our Global Alliance offices, as of March 31, 2009.
As a firm, we believe in applying the appropriate investment approach for each client and consistently and efficiently delivering on that promise. Certainly, all of the capital markets exhibit inefficiencies to one degree or another. Whether or not these inefficiencies can be exploited depends upon the degree of the inefficiency, the cost of attempting to capture these inefficiencies, and the accuracy of the forecasting process. What matters most, however, is meeting the needs of our clients.
It has been our experience that a successful investor must have access to a wide array of investment solutions, including passive, enhanced, and active management, and be able to apply them across the global markets in a consistent and cost-effective manner. As an investment manager, SSgA stands ready to apply elegant, yet transparent investment solutions that seek to meet the unique needs of our clients, regardless of asset class and risk parameters.
