Shares of State Street Corporation (STT) are gaining over 8% on Wednesday morning after the financial services provider terminated its proposed acquisition of Brown Brothers Harriman & Co.'s (BBH) Investor Services business.

STT is currently trading at $79.96, up $6.03 or 8.16%, on the NYSE. The company opened its trading at $73.21 after closing Tuesday's trading at $73.93. The stock has traded between $58.62 and $104.87 in the 52-week period.

The Investor Services business includes associated technology, geographic scope, competitive dynamics, and regulation.
