New State Street Indicators Tracking Carbon, Risk Appetite

State Street Corporation has launched three publicly available data-driven indicators to provide increased insight into the aggregate portfolio allocation trends of institutional investors globally. The State Street S&P Global Institutional Investor Carbon Indicator will track the overall exposure of institutional investor portfolio holdings to carbon emissions, drawing on data accumulated from State Street and S&P Global, powered by S&P Global Sustainable1. Released annually, it will further show how institutional investors are managing their exposure to carbon risk and what is driving shifts in carbon exposures. Calculated daily and published monthly, the Institutional Investor Risk Appetite Indicator will be based on investor flows rather than portfolio positions, identifying whether investors, in aggregate, are buying or selling risky assets. The Institutional Investor Holdings Indicator will track the aggregate holdings of institutional investors across stocks, bonds and cash, with shifts in asset allocations providing some insight into how investors view the economy and their outlook for markets. This indicator will also be calculated daily and released monthly. “In global markets, understanding how the world’s largest pools of capital are moving can help investors identify headwinds and tailwinds that will impact their portfolios both short- and long-term,” said Anthony Bisegna, Head of State Street Global Markets.
