    • Axioma and FactSet build on their existing alliance to deliver more powerful risk tools and analytics as the rise of multi-asset class investing continues

    Axioma, a provider of innovative risk and portfolio management solutions, has expanded its alliance with FactSet to integrate its risk models with the financial data and software firm’s analytics, performance and risk solutions. FactSet clients can now seamlessly access Axioma’s fixed income and multi-asset class risk models to gain the most accurate view of their performance in the increasingly complex investing environment. Axioma’s equity risk models are already available to FactSet clients.

    “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 and cloud computing architecture 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.”

    Through this relationship, Axioma’s fundamental and statistical risk models can now be accessed by FactSet clients as well as via Axioma Risk™, the multi-asset class risk management system that unifies organizations by providing a single view of risk across the front, middle and back office. This enterprise-wide system empowers firms to balance the need to pursue innovative strategies, while also managing the demands of investors and regulators for more transparent risk management and reporting.

    “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.”
