State Street Global Advisors also announced that Brian Kinney has been named global head of Fixed Income Beta Solutions, reporting to Anderson.

He joined SSgA in 2003 and has more than 15 years of experience in fixed income markets.

Commenting on today’s appointments, Anderson said: “These organizational decisions better position SSgA to create innovative products and solutions for our clients and help to ensure that we most effectively deploy our investment talent.”
