BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- State Street Corporation (NYSE: STT) announced today that it achieved the top ranking in the 2012 Global Investor/ISF Equity Lending Survey.

Within its peer group of the largest 20 equity lenders worldwide, State Street ranked No. 1 for the fifth consecutive year1, topping the weighted regional tables in the Americas, EMEA and Asia Pacific. State Street was also the leader in 11 out of 19 service categories and operational sub-categories.

“We’re honored to once again receive this recognition for our equity lending service,” said Nick Bonn, executive vice president and head of Securities Finance and Portfolio Solutions at State Street. “The top rankings achieved by State Street reflect our commitment to delivering flexible, customized securities lending solutions that aim to maximize returns for our clients.”

“State Street once more retained its preeminent position among lenders,” the survey editors reported. One respondent quoted in the survey called State Street “always the market leader in terms of availability, breadth and depth of supply, stability, relationship management, and product knowledge.”

State Street has been ranked among the top equity lenders in the survey for nearly a decade.
