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.
