Amlan Roy joins State Street

Amlan Roy, former managing director of global demographics and pensions research at Credit Suisse, has joined State Street Global Advisors (SSGA) as global chief retirement strategist.

Roy, a renowned pensions academic and researcher, left Credit Suisse last year after nearly 20 years at the firm. During his time there, he established the company’s European Pensions Advisory & Structuring Group, and led its fixed income research and “global demographics project”.

Prior to joining Credit Suisse, he lectured at several universities in the UK and US, covering subjects such as investments, macroeconomics, financial and managerial economics, international finance, and statistics.

He is also a senior research associate at the London School of Economics’ Financial Markets Group, and is a regular speaker at IPE events and contributor to the magazine. He is a guest finance professor at London Business School.

Roy reports to Lori Heinel, SSGA’s deputy global chief investment officer.

Writing about his new role on LinkedIn, Roy said he was “looking forward to contributing to a better world of pensions and investments”. 

In a statement, SSGA said Roy’s responsibilities would include “leading research and thought leadership efforts around global demographics and related implications for economic, policy, retirement, and investment trends”.
