State Street has been custodian for the consumer products group’s UK pension fund for the last three years, and, following a tender process, has been retained.

Allison Kirky, chairman of the investment committee for the pension scheme said that they valued State Street’s “depth of expertise and knowledgeable client service team”.

Jeff Conway, senior vice president of the State Street Corporation commented that the company is advancing its leadership in providing investment-servicing solutions to leading UK pensions.
