BOSTON--()--State Street Corporation (NYSE:STT) today announced it will celebrate its 225th anniversary by ringing the Closing Bell® at the New York Stock Exchange with Chairman and CEO Jay Hooley. As State Street celebrates this significant milestone, it is outlining the way ahead for the industry as being driven by asset intelligence.

“1792 saw key developments that moved the world from potential to reality,” said Hooley. “From the inception of the US dollar to the formation of the US Postal Service, assets and information took on new meaning. And just halfway into that year, John Hancock signed State Street’s earliest ancestor into existence. Over the past 225 years, our ability to change has remained constant. And it's what will continue to define our way ahead.”

Hooley will be joined by clients and colleagues representing the diversity of and the many firsts achieved by State Street, including servicing the first mutual fund; being the first company to have a global, multicurrency fund accounting platform; creating the first US-listed exchange traded fund (ETF) in 1993; and launching SHE, the gender diversity index and ETF, in 2016.

“We are delighted to celebrate this historic milestone with State Street,” said Tom Farley, president of the New York Stock Exchange. “Having a founding year of 1792 ourselves, at the NYSE we recognize that building a durable legacy is dependent on constant innovation and strong stewardship. We look forward to seeing what the next 225 years will bring and what our listed companies like State Street will do to continue shaping markets and the world around us.”
