Announcing this late on Tuesday night, Telangana IT & industries minister KT Rama Rao, who is currently on a whirlwind business tour of the United States, tweeted that StateStreet is expanding big in Hyderabad by adding 5,000 new jobs.
“Good news from Boston. Big Boost to Hyderabad’s BFSI (Banking, financial services & insurance) sector. Hyderabad now becomes the second largest presence for StateStreet after its Boston Headquarters. So proud!!,” KTR tweeted from Boston where he met the financial giant’s top honchos on Tuesday.
