FactSet, a global provider of integrated financial information, analytical applications, and industry-leading service, today announced that it has strengthened its relationship with Axioma, a leading provider of enterprise risk management, portfolio construction and risk and regulatory reporting solutions.
This expands FactSet's strong fixed income and multi-asset class analytics, performance, and risk offerings.
"As the market continues to look at new asset classes, and solutions providers consolidate, investment professionals need more powerful multi-asset class analytics, performance, and risk tools," said Robert Robie, Senior Vice President, Fixed Income Analytics, FactSet. "FactSet is committed to giving our clients options, and Axioma's risk models complement our multi-asset class analytics, performance, and risk solutions."
The strategic relationship includes making Axioma's linear fixed income and multi-asset class model available on FactSet and expands the multi-asset class risk models already available through FactSet.
"In today's dynamic landscape, flexibility, collaboration and integration are key principles in helping investment professionals successfully navigate risk," said JF Chauwin, Axioma's Global Head of Multi-Asset Class Solutions. "Our comprehensive risk models help our joint clients successfully manage to their risk profile. Our growing relationship with FactSet demonstrates our commitment to these principles by giving managers more choice and access to the tools and analytics available in the industry."
