Corporate Highlights

Year in Review

FactSet’s tradition of cooperation and camaraderie continues to define our unique company culture. This year, FactSet was once again named one of FORTUNE’s 100 Best Companies to Work For and one of the UK's Best Workplaces by the Great Place to Work Institute UK, and was also included in the "2014 Best Places to Work in France" list for the third consecutive year. FactSet was also named as one of the 20 Great Workplaces in Technology for the first time by Great Place to Work.

2014 Product Highlights

With over 6,600 employees in 18 countries, we collaborate on a global scale to produce, sell, and support numerous new products and countless enhancements to existing products in order to meet the needs of our clients.

We’d like to highlight the following enhancements to our solutions from fiscal 2014:

  • FactSet's multi-asset class risk model opens risk management up to a new range of asset classes. Clients can now model predictive risks in a variety of markets and assess the impact of any shock on equities, bonds, commodities, and currencies simultaneously.
  • The security trading utility drastically improves a bond portfolio manager’s ability to perform “what if” analysis by simulating a trade before execution.
  • FactSet can now be used as an internal document management system to store and share research insights. This powerful concept drives usage and user growth; clients now seamlessly integrate their own internal news feeds within FactSet and then share insights with colleagues across the hall or across the globe
  • The FactSet Revere database encompasses a comprehensive collection of business relationships to provide visibility into a company’s supply chain. Revere data gives clients insight into companies’ key customers, suppliers, competitors, and strategic partners.
