--Expects Beacon Target Savings of $550 Million to Be Realized by Mid-2019, 18 Months Ahead of Schedule

--Assets under Custody and Administration of $33.1 Trillion and Assets under Management of $2.8 Trillion, Reached Record Levels at Year-End

--Achieved Previously Announced 2017 Financial Objectives (2)

In announcing today’s financial results, Joseph L. Hooley, State Street’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, "Our full-year 2017 results reflect strength across our asset servicing and asset management businesses, with record levels of assets under custody and administration and assets under management, and importantly, achievement of our 2017 financial objectives. We also made significant progress with our Beacon program, achieving benefits for our clients while also realizing $150 million in savings. I am pleased that we have already exceeded our Beacon target to achieve an operating-basis pre-tax margin of 31% by 2018, and generated 210 basis points of positive fee operating leverage in 2017."

(1) The effects of the TCJA described in this News Release are estimates. Actual effects of the TCJA may differ from these estimates, among other things, due to additional tax and regulatory guidance and changes in State Street assumptions and interpretations.

(2) Operating-basis 2017 financial objectives (relative to 2016) consist of: revenue growth of 4-6%; positive fee operating leverage of 100-200 basis points; a 4-6% increase of NII; and a reduction in average interest earning assets of 0-5%.

Hooley added, "Our strong fourth-quarter results included a 7% increase in servicing fees from the year-ago quarter. Excluding the impact related to the recent tax law changes, we achieved double-digit EPS growth as well as an increase in return on equity. We continue to benefit from our strong market position and our ability to deliver servicing solutions evidenced by the approximately $445 billion of new servicing commitments in the fourth quarter. Our business is well-positioned for growth in 2018 including the further advancement and benefits from Beacon. We now expect to realize Beacon’s financial objectives by the middle of 2019."

Hooley concluded, "We’ve maintained a strong capital position, enabling significant return of capital to shareholders. In 4Q17, we purchased approximately $350 million of our common stock and declared a quarterly common stock dividend of $0.42 per share."

(a) Notable items referenced in the above GAAP-basis
table consist of: 4Q17 estimated one-time net costs of $270 million
(-$0.72 per share) related to tax reform of which $250 million is
recorded in tax expense and $20 million is recorded as a reduction
in revenue; and, in 4Q16, a tax benefit of $211 million ($0.54 per
share) and an acceleration of compensation expense of $249 million
pre-tax, $161 million after-tax (-$0.41 per share) for a combined
net benefit of $0.13 per share. Notable items referenced in the
above operating-basis table consist of the foregoing referenced 4Q16
tax benefit ($211 million, or $0.54 per share) and acceleration of
compensation expense ($249 million pre-tax, $161 million after-tax,
or -$0.41 per share). Our presentation of financial results
excluding notable items, as well as our presentation of
operating-basis financial results generally, are non-GAAP
presentations. The final impact of the recently enacted tax reform,
may differ from these estimates due to additional guidance from the
taxing authorities and changes in State Street assumptions and
interpretations. Refer to the addendum to this News Release for
explanations of our non-GAAP financial measures and related
reconciliations.

AUCA/AUM

-- Broad-based business momentum: Record asset servicing AUCA at 4Q17 quarter-end increased 15% from 4Q16 quarter-end due to strength in equity markets, flows, and new business. Record asset management AUM at 4Q17 quarter-end, increased 13% compared to 4Q16 quarter-end, driven by strength in equity markets.

-- New business: New asset servicing mandates during 4Q17 totaled approximately $445 billion. Servicing assets remaining to be installed in future periods totaled approximately $350 billion at quarter-end. In our asset management business, we experienced net inflows of $6 billion during 4Q17.

Revenue

-- Fee revenue: Increased in 4Q17 from 4Q16, primarily driven by strength in servicing fees, management fees, securities finance revenue, and the impact of the weaker U.S. dollar, partially offset by lower trading services revenue. -- Servicing and management fees: Benefiting from higher global equity markets and new business, 4Q17 servicing and management fees increased 7% and 16%, respectively, compared to 4Q16.

-- Net interest income: Increased in 4Q17 from 4Q16, driven by higher market interest rates in the U.S., disciplined liability pricing, and loan portfolio growth, partially offset by a smaller balance sheet.

Expenses

-- Expenses: 4Q16 expenses included $249 million related to the acceleration of compensation expense. Excluding the 4Q16 acceleration of compensation expense, 4Q17 operating-basis expenses increased compared to 4Q16 due to investments to support new business, annual merit increases and performance-based incentives and the impact of the weaker U.S. dollar, partially offset by Beacon savings.

-- Fee operating leverage: Excluding the acceleration of compensation expense, compared to 4Q16, achieved 24 basis points of positive fee operating leverage.

Beacon

-- Solutions and services: Beacon initiatives continue to enhance product development and deliver value-added benefits to clients.

-- Automations and efficiencies: We now expect to realize the previously announced Beacon target savings of $550 million by the middle of 2019, 18 months early. In 2017, we realized $150 million in pre-tax savings toward that goal, including $50 million in 4Q17.

-- GAAP-basis 4Q17: Results included $133 million, $87 million after-tax ( $0.23 per share), in restructuring expenses related to our previously announced Beacon goals.

Tax Law Impact(a)

-- Tax reform: 4Q17 includes a one-time estimated net impact of $270 million associated with the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA). -- Estimated tax expense of approximately $250 million primarily consisting of a one-time repatriation tax of $454 million, partially offset by a reduction in deferred tax liabilities of $197 million.

-- A one-time reduction of approximately $20 million in revenue, primarily within processing fees and other revenue, due to accelerated amortization expense associated with tax-advantaged investments.

-- A decrease in the 4Q17 common equity tier 1 ratio and supplementary leverage ratio of approximately 30 basis points and 15 basis points, respectively.

Capital

-- Key metrics: Relative to 4Q16, the estimated Basel III common equity tier 1 ratio for 4Q17 was 11.9% and our estimated leverage ratio was 7.3%; up 30 basis points and 80 basis points, respectively.

(a)The effects of the TCJA described in this News Release are estimates. Actual effects of the TCJA may differ from these estimates, among other things, due to additional tax and regulatory guidance and changes in State Street assumptions and interpretations.

(1) Beginning with the first quarter of 2017, operating-basis results reflect gains/losses on sales of businesses. The third quarter of 2017 operating-basis results include a pre-tax gain of approximately $26 million on the sale of an alternative trading system. (2) Beginning in 1Q17, management no longer presents discount accretion associated with former conduit securities as an operating-basis adjustment. Therefore, 4Q17 and 3Q17 GAAP and operating-basis results both included $4 million of discount accretion. In 4Q16, operating-basis NII excluded $10 million of discount accretion, and such results have not been revised. (3) See footnote 1 in the 4Q17 GAAP-Basis Results table above. (4) Return on tangible common equity is calculated by dividing year-to-date annualized net income available to common shareholders (operating-basis) by tangible common equity.

Operating-Basis (Non-GAAP) Financial Measures In addition to presenting State Street’s financial results in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, management has also historically (and in this News Release) presented results on a non-GAAP, or operating-basis. Management believed this presentation would support additional meaningful analysis and comparisons of trends with respect to State Street’s business operations from period to period. Management may also provide, as appropriate (and in this News Release has provided) additional non-GAAP measures, including capital ratios calculated under regulatory standards scheduled to be effective in the future or other standards, that management also uses in evaluating State Street’s business and activities. Non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for or superior to, financial measures determined in conformity with GAAP. Summary results presented on a GAAP-basis, descriptions of our non-GAAP financial measures and reconciliations of non-GAAP information to GAAP-basis information are provided in the addendum included with this News Release.

The following table reconciles select 4Q17 operating-basis financial information to financial information prepared and reported in conformity with GAAP for the same period. The addendum included with this News Release includes additional reconciliations.

(1) Beginning with the first quarter of 2017, operating-basis results reflect gains/losses on sales of businesses. The third quarter of 2017 operating-basis results include a pre-tax gain of approximately $26 million on the sale of an alternative trading system. (2) Beginning in 1Q17, management no longer presents discount accretion associated with former conduit securities as an operating-basis adjustment. Therefore, 4Q17 and 3Q17 GAAP and operating-basis results both included $4 million of discount accretion. In 4Q16, operating-basis NII excluded $10 million of discount accretion, and such results have not been revised. nm Not meaningful

The following highlights primary drivers of changes in our 4Q17 revenue for the noted periods, indicating differences between our GAAP-basis and operating-basis results as appropriate.

Servicing fees increased from 4Q16, primarily due to higher global equity markets, new business and the impact of the weaker U.S. dollar, partially offset by modest hedge fund outflows. Compared to 3Q17, servicing fees increased, primarily due to the impact of higher global equity markets and net new business.

Management fees increased from 4Q16, primarily due to higher global equity markets and higher revenue yielding ETF inflows. Compared to 3Q17, management fees were down slightly.

Trading Services revenue decreased from 4Q16, as strong client volumes were offset by lower foreign exchange volatility, as well as the modest impact of the businesses we exited in 2017. Compared to 3Q17, trading services revenue decreased slightly primarily due to the modest impact of the businesses we exited in 2017.

Securities finance revenue increased from 4Q16, reflecting higher client volumes from the agency and enhanced custody businesses, partially offset by spread compression. Compared to 3Q17, securities finance revenue was flat.

Processing fees and other revenue on a GAAP-basis increased from 4Q16, primarily due to lower amortization related to tax-advantaged investments. Compared to 3Q17, processing fees and other revenue on a GAAP-basis decreased, reflecting higher amortization expense associated with tax-advantaged investments related to the recently enacted tax law and the impact of a gain related to the sale of an equity trading platform in 3Q17.

Processing fees and other revenue increased from 4Q16, reflecting favorable valuation adjustments, partially offset by lower revenue related to tax-advantaged investments. Compared to 3Q17, processing fees and other revenue decreased, primarily reflecting a gain related to the sale of an equity trading platform in 3Q17.

Net interest income increased from 4Q16, primarily due to higher U.S. market interest rates, disciplined liability pricing, and loan portfolio growth, partially offset by a smaller balance sheet. Compared to 3Q17, NII increased primarily due to central bank rate hikes and a shift toward higher yielding interest earning assets, partially offset by a smaller balance sheet. GAAP-basis NII does not include a taxable-equivalent adjustment for tax-exempt investment securities. Net interest margin, calculated on an operating-basis, increased 31 basis points compared to 4Q16, and increased 4 basis points compared to 3Q17.

(1) Compensation and employee benefits includes $249 million of accelerated compensation expense (-$0.41 per share) for the fourth quarter of 2016.

The following highlights primary drivers of changes in our 4Q17 expenses for the noted periods, indicating differences between our GAAP-basis and operating-basis results as appropriate.

Compensation and employee benefits expenses decreased from 4Q16, primarily due to $249 million related to the acceleration of compensation expense in 4Q16 and Beacon-related savings, partially offset by increased costs to support new business, annual merit and performance-based incentive compensation increases, and the impact of the weaker U.S. dollar. Compared to 3Q17, compensation and employee benefits expenses decreased, primarily due to Beacon savings, partially offset by increased costs to support new business.

Information systems and communications expenses increased from both 4Q16 and 3Q17. The increase from both periods is due to higher technology infrastructure costs and Beacon investments.

Transaction processing services expenses increased from both 4Q16 and 3Q17. The increase from both periods reflects higher client volumes and higher market levels.

Occupancy expenses increased from 4Q16, primarily reflecting Beacon-related global footprint investments.

Other expenses decreased from 4Q16, reflecting lower professional services costs. Other expenses increased from 3Q17, primarily due to higher costs to support new business, including marketing.

4Q17 acquisition and restructuring costs of $133 million increased from $43 million and $33 million in 4Q16 and 3Q17, respectively, related to Beacon.

The 4Q17 GAAP-basis effective tax rate was 48.4% compared to (72.3)% in 4Q16 and 16.7% in 3Q17. As a result of the enactment of the TCJA, 4Q17 included a one-time estimated net tax cost of $270 million.(1) 4Q16 reflected a one-time net tax benefit of $211 million. Excluding these items, the 4Q17 and 4Q16 effective tax rates are 13.2% and 8.5%, respectively. The increase in 4Q17 tax rate compared to 4Q16 reflects a decrease in tax-advantaged investments. As compared to 3Q17, the decrease in tax rate is related to an increase in the mix of foreign earnings.

The 4Q17 operating-basis effective tax rate was 26.8% compared to (1.5)% in 4Q16 and 27.9% in 3Q17. Excluding a one-time net tax benefit of $211 million, the 4Q16 effective tax rate was 34%. The decrease in the tax rate from 4Q16 is primarily related to a reduction in tax-advantaged investments.

(1)The effects of the TCJA described in this News Release are estimates. Actual effects of the TCJA may differ from these estimates, among other things, due to additional tax and regulatory guidance and changes in State Street assumptions and interpretations.

The following table presents our regulatory capital ratios as of December 31, 2017 and September 30, 2017. The lower of our capital ratios calculated under the Basel III advanced approaches and under the Basel III standardized approach are applied in the assessment of our capital adequacy for regulatory purposes. Also presented is the calculation of State Street’s and State Street Bank’s supplementary leverage ratio (SLR).

Additional Information

In this News Release:

-- All earnings per share amounts represent fully diluted earnings per common share.

-- Return on average common shareholders’ equity is determined by dividing annualized net income available to common equity by average common shareholders’ equity for the period. Operating-basis return on average common equity utilizes annualized operating-basis net income available to common equity in the calculation.

-- New asset servicing mandates and servicing assets remaining to be installed in future periods exclude new business which has been contracted, but for which the client has not yet provided permission to publicly disclose and is not yet installed. New business in assets to be serviced is reflected in our AUCA after we begin servicing the assets, and new business in assets to be managed is reflected in our AUM after we begin managing the assets. As such, only a portion of any new asset servicing and asset management mandate is reflected in our AUCA and AUM as of December 31, 2017. Distribution fees from the SPDR(R) Gold ETF and the SPDR(R) Long Dollar Gold Trust ETF are recorded in brokerage and other fee revenue and not in management fee revenue.

-- State Street’s common stock and other stock dividends, including the declaration, timing and amount thereof, remain subject to consideration and approval by its Board of Directors at the relevant times. Stock purchases may be made using various types of mechanisms, including open market purchases under our announced common stock purchase program, accelerated share repurchases, or transactions off market, and may be made under Rule 10b5-1 trading programs. The timing, amount and continuation of stock purchases, types of transactions and number of shares purchased will depend on several factors, including market conditions and State Street’s capital position, its financial performance and acquisition and other investment opportunities. The common stock purchase programs do not have specific price targets and may be suspended at any time.

Forward-Looking Statements

This News Release (and the conference call referenced herein) contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of United States securities laws, including statements about our goals and expectations regarding our business, financial and capital condition, results of operations, strategies, the financial and market outlook, dividend and stock purchase programs, governmental and regulatory initiatives and developments, and the business environment. Forward-looking statements are often, but not always, identified by such forward-looking terminology as "outlook," "expect," "priority," "objective," "intend," "plan," "forecast," "believe," "anticipate," "estimate," "seek," "may," "will," "trend," "target," "strategy" and "goal," or similar statements or variations of such terms. These statements are not guarantees of future performance, are inherently uncertain, are based on current assumptions that are difficult to predict and involve a number of risks and uncertainties. Therefore, actual outcomes and results may differ materially from what is expressed in those statements, and those statements should not be relied upon as representing our expectations or beliefs as of any date subsequent to January 23, 2018.

Important factors that may affect future results and outcomes include, but are not limited to:

-- the financial strength and continuing viability of the counterparties with which we or our clients do business and to which we have investment, credit or financial exposure, including, for example, the direct and indirect effects on counterparties of the sovereign-debt risks in the U.S., Europe and other regions;

-- increases in the volatility of, or declines in the level of, our NII, changes in the composition or valuation of the assets recorded in our consolidated statement of condition (and our ability to measure the fair value of investment securities) and the possibility that we may change the manner in which we fund those assets;

-- the liquidity of the U.S. and international securities markets, particularly the markets for fixed-income securities and inter-bank credits, and the liquidity requirements of our clients;

-- the level and volatility of interest rates, the valuation of the U.S. dollar relative to other currencies in which we record revenue or accrue expenses and the performance and volatility of securities, credit, currency and other markets in the U.S. and internationally; and the impact of monetary and fiscal policy in the United States and internationally on prevailing rates of interest and currency exchange rates in the markets in which we provide services to our clients;

-- the credit quality, credit-agency ratings and fair values of the securities in our investment securities portfolio, a deterioration or downgrade of which could lead to other-than-temporary impairment of the respective securities and the recognition of an impairment loss in our consolidated statement of income;

-- our ability to attract deposits and other low-cost, short-term funding, our ability to manage levels of such deposits and the relative portion of our deposits that are determined to be operational under regulatory guidelines and our ability to deploy deposits in a profitable manner consistent with our liquidity needs, regulatory requirements and risk profile;

-- the manner and timing with which the Federal Reserve and other U.S. and foreign regulators implement or reevaluate the regulatory framework applicable to our operations (as well as changes to that framework), including implementation or modification of the Dodd-Frank Act and related stress testing and resolution planning requirements, the Basel III final rule and European legislation (such as the AIFMD, UCITS, the Money Market Funds Regulation and MiFID II/MiFIR); among other consequences, these regulatory changes impact the levels of regulatory capital we must maintain, acceptable levels of credit exposure to third parties, margin requirements applicable to derivatives, restrictions on banking and financial activities and the manner in which we structure and implement our global operations and servicing relationships. In addition, our regulatory posture and related expenses have been and will continue to be affected by changes in regulatory expectations for global systemically important financial institutions applicable to, among other things, risk management, liquidity and capital planning, resolution planning, compliance programs, and changes in governmental enforcement approaches to perceived failures to comply with regulatory or legal obligations;

-- adverse changes in the regulatory ratios that we are required or will be required to meet, whether arising under the Dodd-Frank Act or the Basel III final rule, or due to changes in regulatory positions, practices or regulations in jurisdictions in which we engage in banking activities, including changes in internal or external data, formulae, models, assumptions or other advanced systems used in the calculation of our capital ratios that cause changes in those ratios as they are measured from period to period;

-- requirements to obtain the prior approval or non-objection of the Federal Reserve or other U.S. and non-U.S. regulators for the use, allocation or distribution of our capital or other specific capital actions or corporate activities, including, without limitation, acquisitions, investments in subsidiaries, dividends and stock purchases, without which our growth plans, distributions to shareholders, share repurchase programs or other capital or corporate initiatives may be restricted;

-- changes in law or regulation, or the enforcement of law or regulation, that may adversely affect our business activities or those of our clients or our counterparties, and the products or services that we sell, including additional or increased taxes or assessments thereon, capital adequacy requirements, margin requirements and changes that expose us to risks related to the adequacy of our controls or compliance programs;

-- economic or financial market disruptions in the U.S. or internationally, including those which may result from recessions or political instability; for example, the U.K.’s decision to exit from the European Union may continue to disrupt financial markets or economic growth in Europe or, similarly, financial markets may react sharply or abruptly to actions taken by the new administration in the United States;

-- our ability to develop and execute State Street Beacon, our multi-year transformation program to create cost efficiencies through changes in our operational processes and to further digitize our processes and interfaces with our clients, any failure of which, in whole or in part, may among other things, reduce our competitive position, diminish the cost-effectiveness of our systems and processes or provide an insufficient return on our associated investment;

-- our ability to promote a strong culture of risk management, operating controls, compliance oversight, ethical behavior and governance that meets our expectations and those of our clients and our regulators, and the financial, regulatory, reputation and other consequences of our failure to meet such expectations;

-- the impact on our compliance and controls enhancement programs associated with the appointment of a monitor under the deferred prosecution agreement with the DOJ and compliance consultant appointed under a settlement with the SEC, including the potential for such monitor and compliance consultant to require changes to our programs or to identify other issues that require substantial expenditures, changes in our operations, or payments to clients or reporting to U.S. authorities;

-- the results of our review of our billing practices, including additional findings or amounts we may be required to reimburse clients, as well as potential consequences of such review, including damage to our client relationships or our reputation and adverse actions by governmental authorities;

-- the results of, and costs associated with, governmental or regulatory inquiries and investigations, litigation and similar claims, disputes; or civil or criminal proceedings;

-- changes or potential changes in the amount of compensation we receive from clients for our services, and the mix of services provided by us that clients choose;

-- the large institutional clients on which we focus are often able to exert considerable market influence and have diverse investment activities, and this, combined with strong competitive market forces, subjects us to significant pressure to reduce the fees we charge, to potentially significant changes in our assets under custody and administration or our assets under management in the event of the acquisition or loss of a client, in whole or in part, and to potentially significant changes in our fee revenue in the event a client re-balances or changes its investment approach or otherwise re-directs assets to lower- or higher-fee asset classes;

-- the potential for losses arising from our investments in sponsored investment funds;

-- the possibility that our clients will incur substantial losses in investment pools for which we act as agent, and the possibility of significant reductions in the liquidity or valuation of assets underlying those pools;

-- our ability to anticipate and manage the level and timing of redemptions and withdrawals from our collateral pools and other collective investment products;

-- the credit agency ratings of our debt and depositary obligations and investor and client perceptions of our financial strength;

-- adverse publicity, whether specific to State Street or regarding other industry participants or industry-wide factors, or other reputational harm;

-- our ability to control operational risks, data security breach risks and outsourcing risks, our ability to protect our intellectual property rights, the possibility of errors in the quantitative models we use to manage our business and the possibility that our controls will prove insufficient, fail or be circumvented;

-- our ability to expand our use of technology to enhance the efficiency, accuracy and reliability of our operations and our dependencies on information technology and our ability to control related risks, including cyber-crime and other threats to our information technology infrastructure and systems (including those of our third-party service providers) and their effective operation both independently and with external systems, and complexities and costs of protecting the security of such systems and data;

-- our ability to complete acquisitions, joint ventures and divestitures, including the ability to obtain regulatory approvals, the ability to arrange financing as required and the ability to satisfy closing conditions;

-- the risks that our acquired businesses and joint ventures will not achieve their anticipated financial, operational and product innovation benefits or will not be integrated successfully, or that the integration will take longer than anticipated, that expected synergies will not be achieved or unexpected negative synergies or liabilities will be experienced, that client and deposit retention goals will not be met, that other regulatory or operational challenges will be experienced, and that disruptions from the transaction will harm our relationships with our clients, our employees or regulators;

-- our ability to recognize evolving needs of our clients and to develop products that are responsive to such trends and profitable to us, the performance of and demand for the products and services we offer, and the potential for new products and services to impose additional costs on us and expose us to increased operational risk;

-- our ability to grow revenue, manage expenses, attract and retain highly skilled people and raise the capital necessary to achieve our business goals and comply with regulatory requirements and expectations;

-- changes or potential changes to the competitive environment, including changes due to regulatory and technological changes, the effects of industry consolidation and perceptions of State Street as a suitable service provider or counterparty;

-- changes in accounting standards and practices; and

-- changes in tax legislation and in the interpretation of existing tax laws by U.S. and non-U.S. tax authorities that affect the amount of taxes due.
