State Street

State Street has welcomed Jessica Donohue to the role of Head of Global Investment Insights, Sustainability, and Impact.

Donohue’s primary duties will centre on amplifying the firm’s sustainability agenda and delivering valuable insights to clients and the wider industry.

State Street is a prominent player in the financial services industry with a key focus on investment management. The company leverages its financial acumen and technology to deliver an array of services including investment servicing, investment management, investment research and trading. It holds an unwavering commitment to fostering sustainable growth and delivering meaningful outcomes for its clients.

Jessica Donohue, a seasoned figure at State Street, steps into her new role with a wealth of experience and industry knowledge. In this role, she replaces Rick Lacaille, who held the newly minted role in 2020, leading the company’s ESG initiatives and services across all business sectors. Lacaille announced his retirement earlier this year, providing a well-deserved respite after serving as global CIO for State Street Global Advisors (SSGA).

Donohue has been a prominent figure within State Street for over 20 years. Her roles have spanned the breadth of the company, encompassing Head of Investor Behavior Research at State Street Associates, Chief Innovation Officer and Head of Advisory and Information Solutions for Global Exchange (now State Street Alpha), and Head of Performance & Analytics for Investment Services. This extensive experience positions her well for her latest role, with an intricate understanding of the business and the wider industry.

State Street President, Chief Operating Officer, and Head of Investment Services, Lou Maiuri, conveyed his confidence in Donohue, “Being a strategic and trusted partner to our clients to meet their complex and changing needs requires us to continue to evolve our investment-related thought leadership and solutions. Jessica’s background in research and investment-related insights, coupled with her deep understanding of clients’ unique challenges and the market overall is precisely what our clients need as we continue to deliver as their essential partner.”
