Premier Regional Financial Publication Recognizes State Street for Product Innovation and Securities Lending Capabilities

Singapore, March 1, 2007 – State Street Corporation (NYSE:STT), the world’s leading provider of financial services to institutional investors, today announced that it received top rankings in the Asia Asset Management Awards for 2006. The award winners were recognized on February 28 at a dinner ceremony at the Four Seasons Hotel in Hong Kong.

State Street Global Advisors (SSgA), the company’s investment management arm, garnered praise for streetTRACKS® Gold Shares in the category of “Singapore — Most Innovative Product.” State Street was also named “Best Securities Lending House.”

“We are honored to be recognized for our commitment to providing innovative investment solutions to our customers in Asia,” said Bernard Reilly, senior managing director for State Street Global Advisors Asia Limited.  “Our position as a key provider of diverse investment vehicles, coupled with our highly skilled team of professionals, enables us to provide customers with solutions to meet their investment needs.”

Launched in November 2004 by State Street in conjunction with the sponsor, World Gold Trust Services, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of the World Gold Council, streetTRACKS Gold Shares is the first gold-backed exchange-traded fund (ETF). It is now authorized and listed in Asia and is the largest and most liquid gold-backed equity in the world.




Stuart Thomas, a spokesperson for World Gold Trust Services, LLC, commented:

“When we first rolled out the exchange traded gold products four years ago, we knew that the innovative and simple product would be well received by investors who wanted easy access to the benefits of investing in gold. With the additional listing of streetTRACKS Gold Shares in Asia, Exchange Traded Gold Shares can now be traded virtually 24 hours a day. I’m very proud that streetTRACKS® Gold Shares received this accolade in Asia.”
