April 12, 2013 (PLANSPONSOR.com) – State Street Corporation named Jeff Conway to lead its new Global Exchange organization.

Global Exchange is dedicated to developing solutions to address clients’ data information and trading challenges.  It reorganizes existing components from State Street’s research and advisory, analytics, Currenex, Global Link and derivatives clearing capabilities into one organization, which will provide clients with easier access to solutions and accelerating new product development.

Conway, executive vice president and 25-year industry veteran, will report to Jack Klinck, a member of State Street’s Management Committee and head of global strategy and new ventures. Conway has led a number of businesses and corporate functions at State Street in addition to leadership roles within the company’s international business in Europe and the Asia-Pacific region.

“Driven by regulatory reform, complexity and transparency, clients want access to real-time data and analytics to better inform their investment and trading decisions,” said Klinck. “Our goal is to support our clients’ trade lifecycle from investment decision to post-trade administration, minimizing trading and operational costs.”
