SSGA Promotes Global Head Of Product, Marketing

State Street Global Advisors has promoted Cyrus Taraporevala, current global head of product and marketing, to a role overseeing all client- and consultant-facing marketing and product functions for its institutional clients.

Prior to joining SSGA in April last year, Taraporevala worked with Fidelity Investments, where he led its retail managed accounts and life insurance and annuities business. Earlier in his career, he also spent stints at BNY Mellon Asset Management and Citigroup Global Investment Management. In total, he has more than 25 years' experience in asset management.

In addition to leading SSGA's product and marketing team, he also headed the acquisition and integration of GE Asset Management.

In his new role, which does not have an official title, according to SSGA's statement, he will manage all of the firm's institutional-focused marketing and product functions efforts across the US, Europe, Middle East and Africa, and Asia-Pacific.

“In Cyrus’ new role, he will be responsible for ensuring we continue to improve and evolve the way we serve our institutional clients and consultants, in all aspects of what we deliver to them: from thought leadership, to distinctive products, to engagement efforts that help them diagnose and solve the complex financial challenges they face,” said Ron O'Hanley, president and chief executive of SSGA.
