Intersection of finance and tech

“At FactSet, we are at the perfect intersections of technology and finance which fuels on our thinking on product innovation. The world’s more open than it’s ever been and both volume and access to information are now at unprecedented levels. We see clients willing to outsource and move more workflows to cloud base solution. With a significant investment and upgrades to our technology stack combined with our content and analytics, we are now able to offer new ways for clients to leverage the power of FactSet.”

“That’s a great question Bill, thank you.

So we anticipate that it will continue to had in this directions for little while, what I would say is that we have a broader suite of solutions that we had historically to help mitigates some of that.”
