Carrie Peluso, managing director and head of client engagement for State Street Global Advisors, was given the additional role of head of manager research in the firm's global fiduciary solutions, which includes OCIO investments.
She retains her current role and also assumed portfolio management responsibility for and co-portfolio management of SSGA's institutional small-cap equity funds, spokesman Edward Patterson said in an email.
Ms. Peluso's co-portfolio manager is Shawn McKay, vice president and senior investment strategist in the solutions business.
Ms. Peluso replaces Dennis J. Santos as head of manager research and co-portfolio manager for small-cap equity funds, Mr. Patterson confirmed.
Mr. Santos joined Okabena Investment Services, the investment division of Okabena Co., a family office, as senior vice president and CIO earlier this month, the firm's website said.
SSGA managed $3.59 trillion as of March 31.
