Investment Philosophy

At State Street Global Advisors, our investment philosophy is guided by these core beliefs:

Understanding multiple dimensions

Creating successful investment outcomes starts with understanding the multiple dimensions of a client’s long-term objectives and liabilities.

Focusing on asset allocation

The primary driver of long-term returns is asset allocation.

– Investors need efficient access to a broad universe of capital market exposure.

– Focus should be on underlying risks, not asset class labels.

Knowing markets are not always efficient

– Due to behavioral biases, informational inefficiencies and limits to arbitrage, markets are not always efficient, leading to opportunities for excess returns.

Achieving capital-& risk-efficient portfolios

– A thoughtful and precise combination of market-, factor- and idiosyncratic-risk, along with manager skill, are key to achieving capital-, and risk-efficient portfolios.
