Who we are looking for

State Street’s Institutional Services Strategy team is focused on providing strategic support and insight across Global Services business units (e.g., Asset Manager Servicing, Asset Owner Servicing, Insurance Servicing, Performance Analytics and Middle Office Servicing) to drive effective decision-making and action by senior management. The Global Client Coverage organization includes our global sales and relationship management teams as well as the Global Client Division, which serves our 60 largest clients who account for more than half of State Street’s revenue.

As a Vice President on the Institutional Services Strategy team focused on client coverage, you will work closely with the leadership team of State Street’s largest business units. You will participate in complex strategy and organization projects involving growth opportunities, global client coverage models, segment strategies and revenue dynamics.

This is a great opportunity for a Project Leader to move from consulting to business leadership and join a very small, high-impact team with direct exposure to State Street’s business leaders and Management Committee. Strategy teams across State Street have strong track records of positioning team members for leadership roles across the firm. Senior management includes good representation of alumni from top management consulting firms, including the Chairman and CEO, Head of Strategy and CEO of Asset Management.

Why this role is important to us

The team you will be joining is a part of State Street Global Services (SSGS). SSGS gives asset owners and managers access to the essential financial tools they need to deliver effective investment solutions. From core custody, accounting, fund administration and shareholder recordkeeping, to complete operations solutions and servicing for alternative assets like OTC derivatives, private equity and real estate, SSGS’ tools help our clients make better investment choices and act on growth opportunities.

Join us if making your mark in the financial services industry from day one is a challenge you are up for.
