FactSet Teams Up with Macrobond to Offer Insight into Global Equity Markets

Macrobond, a provider of global economic, aggregate financial and sector data for finance professionals, has teamed up with FactSet to provide top-down researchers with insight into the dynamics of global equity markets.

The company has worked with FactSet to build an aggregate version of the latter’s Quant Factor Library, a point-in-time database of factor insights and consolidated data, including alternative data, from more than 70,000 securities across 127 countries and more than 200 exchanges. The library helps users detect investment themes across global equity markets, incorporate ideas into portfolio construction processes and transform raw data into actionable intelligence.

The new dataset, which combines FactSet’s deep insights into individual stocks with Macrobond’s platform for top-down analysis, allows users to efficiently form an aggregate view of the market by index, sector, country and other categories. As well as standard metrics such as earnings yields and EPS estimates, it includes a broad range of data such as ownership and corporate governance – including the number of women on boards, executive remuneration and stock buybacks – enabling researchers to explore pertinent themes.
