State Street launches multi-asset research platform  

The platform offers users proprietary research, data-driven indicators and market commentary from State Street’s macro strategist team globally.  

Boston-based investment bank State Street has launched an investment research platform aimed at giving users tailored access to multi-asset research offerings. 

Named Insights, the platform offers users access to proprietary research, data-driven indicators and market commentary from State Street’s global team of macro strategists and will eventually replace State Street’s current IR3 web portal. 

“Whether it’s high-frequency inflation data, proprietary capital flow indicators, or sentiment shifts derived from millions of social media posts, access to data-driven asset intelligence can give our clients an edge,” said Nadine Chakar, executive vice president and head of State Street Global Markets.

“We have a proven track record of providing valuable research, and throughout the global pandemic, our clients have relied on our partnership to weather market volatility at an unprecedented speed. We can now offer these solutions in a more dynamic and engaging platform via Insights.”

The Insights platform also allows clients to investigate past market performance after specific data signals using a Signal Studio tool.

This is the second platform to be launched by State Street in the last few months, as the investment bank looks to enhance its technology infrastructure across its data and research offerings.  

 In December, State Street launched a new data platform for its front-to-back offering, Alpha, which delivers an enhanced data management service to buy-side firms by tapping investment information from third-parties and internal sources. 

The new end-to-end data management and warehouse solution for institutional investors and wealth managers aims to address the critical aspect of delivering front-office data in near real-time.

Speaking to The TRADE in November, Chakar also said that the coronavirus pandemic and shift to remote working had ignited a digital movement across the industry as firms accelerated adoption of new technologies.
