State Street Global Advisors (SSgA), the asset management arm of State Street Corporation (NYSE: STT), today announced five key appointments in the firm’s intermediary business, which provides products supporting wealth management professionals, including SPDR ETFs and State Street mutual funds, for wirehouses, Registered Investment Advisors (RIAs), private banks, family offices and regional / independent broker dealers. The appointments will bolster SSgA’s competency across its intermediary business, which was created in 2001 to better access the firm’s deep institutional experience and broad investment knowledge.

“These appointments enhance our capabilities and reflect our commitment to invest in ways that support advisors so they can achieve better outcomes for their clients,” said James Ross, executive vice president, global head of SPDR ETFs, and head of US intermediary distribution at SSgA. “We look forward to the teams’ contributions in providing advisors with solutions to meet the expectations of their clients by offering differentiated products and investment views that will help support their businesses.”
