Lloyds Banking Group (LBG) Renews and Extends Strategic Outsourcing Contract with State Street

State Street Corporation, one of the world’s leading providers of financial services to institutional investors, announced today that Lloyds Banking Group (LBG) through its Life, Pensions and Investments business (Scottish Widows) and its Asset Management business (Scottish Widows Investment Partnership (SWIP) has renewed and extended its existing contract. State Street will serve as the preferred single provider of middle office, custody, fund accounting, depositary, securities lending and investment administration services for Scottish Widows and SWIP. The consolidated portfolios include investment accounting for more than £200 billion of assets and the services currently supported by other providers will migrate to State Street during the next 18 months.

Following the acquisition of HBOS in 2009, Lloyds Banking Group reviewed all its outsourcing options to determine how best to develop a single operating model across the Group. An agreement has been reached to enhance the existing working relationship already in place between State Street and Scottish Widows/SWIP and extend the contract to cover legacy HBOS investment administration.

“We are delighted that we have been able to extend and strengthen our strategic outsourcing relationship with Lloyds Banking Group and feel it is a strong endorsement of our commitment to the securities servicing business,” said Joe Antonellis, vice chairman of State Street. “We believe we can assist Lloyds Banking Group to positively address the many changes taking place in the industry, such as Solvency II”.

“We are confident that both SWIP and Scottish Widows will benefit from our leading technology systems, depth of resources and commitment to excellence in client service.” continued Antonellis.
