With this deal, Nikko AM plans to further optimize the speed and quality of data integration across asset types, input sources, and geographic locations. The company will also leverage FactSet’s fixed income analytics to obtain a single global multi-asset covariance matrix and analytics coverage across developed, emerging, and frontier markets.
“We are excited to work with FactSet, as they have demonstrated coverage for our diverse range of fixed income investments,” says Chin-Jen Chang, Head of Global Data Management and Solutions at Nikko AM. “FactSet’s client service and its excellent data management capabilities also consistently differentiated them from their competitors, and were major reasons Nikko AM selected FactSet.”

With the recent launch of a new linear risk model, FactSet now has one of the strongest MAC analytics, performance, and risk management offerings in the asset management industry.
