State Street Global Advisors (SSgA), the asset management business of State Street Corporation highlighted in its global outlook for 2014 five key investment themes, around an expected recovery with some remaining risks.

SSgA expects a 7.5% growth for China. Overall one should still be cautious of the sluggish growth and the normalization of monetary policy.

State Street’s investment themes are:

1. Fixed income in transition, due to diverging monetary policies, the U.S. tapering, and rising rates.
