Paul Fleming, global head of Global Alternatives Segment at State Street, commented: “I’m very pleased to welcome Jesse to State Street. He’s a seasoned leader who joins us at an optimal time to provide important leadership to our private markets team. Investment in private markets is growing significantly across all our segments as investors continue to reach for yield in a low-rate, low-growth environment, and our clients continue to ask for more private market products. With Jesse’s appointment, we are confident we have the right team in place to ensure we are meeting the multifaceted needs of our clients and be able to provide them with more solutions.”
