FactSet Financial Entities
Managers of financial data and the entities associated with the financial industry, need a system to keep track of it all. Public or private companies and their operating subsidiaries, equity and fixed income securities, company officers and directors, analysts, and money managers change over time due to corporate actions and M&A activity, securities being issued and retired, and people moving in and out of jobs. The FactSet Financial Entities database tracks these entities and the relationships between them.
