SIX has acquired a majority stake in FactEntry, a global provider of fixed income reference data, analytics and solutions for financial market participants. The acquisition enhances SIX’s data offering and meets customer demand for the company to expand its global fixed income footprint.

FactEntry’s fixed income data sets, including reference data and corporate actions, will complement SIX’s existing cross-asset data capabilities, enabling the company to provide a more comprehensive and unified data offering to its customers.

“The acquisition of FactEntry is a step forward in our strategic growth plans,” says Marion Leslie, head of financial information at SIX and a member of the executive board. “Its expertise and data offerings will enhance our fixed income data capabilities and enable us to provide greater value to our customers.”

As well as adding fixed income data, analytics and solutions to SIX’s portfolio, the acquisition brings expertise in data collection and processing, which will accelerate the company’s time to market for new products and services. This expertise adds to SIX’s ability to provide regulation ready content and will support the enhancement of ESG, funds and index content.
