We combine hundreds of databases from industry-leading suppliers with our clients' own proprietary data to deliver a one-stop source for financial information.

Our clients are top financial professionals, working at some of the largest investment firms in the world. For more than 35 years, through market changes and technological progress, we’ve maintained our focus on providing exceptional client service. Every job function and department contributes to our overall goal of adding value to our clients’ workflows.

Interested in achieving the CFA, CIPM, CAIA, or FRM designations?

Our company would not be what it is without our people. We promise to invest in your personal and professional development to ensure you have the tools to think critically about a problem, proactively arrive at a solution, and confidently implement it. We want you to know our clients' business!

No matter what department you join, if you are interested in taking the CFA exam, we'll provide five days of PTO prior to the exam, reimbursement for exam and study material fees (pending a passing grade), and a bonus for each level achieved. Historically, FactSetters have passed Level I of the CFA exam at a rate of 69%, compared to the national average of 35%. We also encourage employees to pursue CIPM, CAIA, and FRM designations and cover the costs of those exams for some teams.
