About us

When FactSet was established in 1978, our two founders sent printed copies of financial information (a “fact set”) to clients by courier. Since then, we have grown to become a leading provider of online data and analytics tools for investment professionals. When we started there was a team fewer than 10 people and we delivered our data to our clients on paper, via bike messenger. Now we are a greater than 9,600 strong in 24 countries delivering best in class solutions at the intersection of technology and Finance. The thread line from FactSet’s founding to today is the focus on our people, FactSetter’s. We pride ourselves on not only hiring the best but also the nicest people. We create data and software solutions for tens of thousands of investment professionals around the world, providing instant access to financial data and analytics that investors use to make crucial investment decisions. We are dedicated to staying on the cutting edge of technology by continually developing and refining our own software. Our sophisticated tools enable clients to control and customise data as never before and to present their findings in any format they imagine. What differentiates us from our competitors and other Companies is that no matter how much we have grown, as far as our reach, and as successful as we have become we have not lost our original focus; we stay connected to our clients and to each other.

What defines us

FactSet is built on the values that has guided the company since its founding in 1978. Our founder’s principles continue to drive how we have shaped the norms of our culture. In 2017 we invested in the engaging process to reaffirm our values. Across the globe, clients value FactSet's dedication to service and partnership. It is not just what we do, it is how we do it and who we are that makes us a great partner for our clients and a great place to work. To build on our momentum, accelerate our growth and expand our global footprint, it was important that we were able to articulate and live out the core values that differentiate FactSet. For us nobody knew them better than our people.

As FactSetters we are brought together by our mission to solve our client’s greatest challenges with the power of collaboration and our shared values. It’s the human element that drives us. We are an inclusive community unified by the FactSet spirit of going above and beyond. Our best ideas can come from anyone, anywhere, at any time. We roll up our sleeves to solve problems together and constantly push each other to do better. We remain constantly innovating, evolving. We win as a team and we celebrate those wins together. As big as we grow, as far as our reach and as successfully as we become we stay connected to each other.

What inspires us

We pride ourselves on the benefits we provide to our employees. These range from free lunches, Monday - Thursday, Health and Dental Insurance, pension, season tickets, annual leave which increases with tenure and much more. We also have launched Tenure Awards for loyal employees, sending a small gift and thank you note to any employee celebrating a milestone of 10, 15, 20- or 25-year tenure anniversary with FactSet

For excellent work on individual or team projects, managers can reward their employees with gifts like a celebration lunch, gift vouchers or a day off. Senior management encourages team leaders to reward and thank employees with such gifts throughout the year at the manager’s discretion and in line with the employee’s preference.

FactSet departments also organize team away days with team building exercises. Examples of this have been FactSet sponsored go carting excursions, dodgeball, bowling evenings, and cooking sessions. We aim to reward staff for their hard work and make them feel that their contribution is significant to our overall growth.
