State Street Corporation Announces Planned 10% Dividend Increase and Preliminary Stress Capital Buffer Requirement

BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–State Street Corporation (NYSE: STT) today announced its intention to increase its per share common stock dividend by 10% to $0.76 in the third quarter of 2024, subject to consideration and approval by its Board of Directors. State Street continues to be authorized to repurchase common shares under its existing share repurchase program previously approved by its Board of Directors.


The Company also announced today that it had completed the Federal Reserve’s 2024 Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Review (CCAR) stress test process. State Street’s calculated Stress Capital Buffer (SCB) under this year’s supervisory stress test was well below the 2.5% minimum, preliminarily resulting in a continued SCB at that floor, which maintains its common equity tier 1 (CET1) ratio requirement at 8%1. The Federal Reserve will release the firm’s final SCB requirement by August 31, 2024, which will become effective on October 1, 2024 and remain in effect through September 30, 2025. The results of the firm’s 2024 annual stress test, with its disclosure, are available on the Investor Relations section of its website at http://investors.statestreet.com.

“We are pleased with the outcome of the 2024 CCAR process, as it once again confirms the financial strength and resiliency of State Street under severely adverse economic conditions,” said Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Ron O’Hanley. “In addition, our earnings and balance sheet capacity have enabled us to announce another planned increase to our quarterly common dividend, as we continue to deliver value for our shareholders,” O’Hanley added.

State Street’s Board of Directors will consider the common stock dividend at a regularly scheduled board meeting in the third quarter of 2024. State Street’s third quarter 2024 common stock and other stock dividends, including the declaration, timing and amount, remain subject to consideration and approval by State Street’s Board of Directors at the relevant times.

Stock purchases under State Street’s common share repurchase program may be made using various types of transactions, including open-market purchases, accelerated share repurchases or other transactions off the market, and may be made under Rule 10b5-1 trading programs. The timing and amount of any stock purchases and the type of transaction may not be ratable over the duration of the program, may vary from reporting period to reporting period and will depend on several factors, including State Street’s capital position and financial performance, investment opportunities, market conditions, the nature and timing of implementation of revisions to the Basel III framework and the amount of common stock issued as part of employee compensation programs. The common share repurchase program does not have specific price targets and may be suspended at any time.
