FactSet Expands APAC Presence with Nikko Asset Management Deal

Subscribe to our newsletter

FactSet has expanded its presence in APAC through a deal with Tokyo-based Nikko Asset Management. The deal further consolidates the company’s Asian footprint following the May 2018 opening of an office in Shanghai, which added to existing locations in Hong Kong and Sydney.

Nikko Asset Management has selected the FactSet Linear Multi Asset Class risk model to help manage risk across its global fixed income portfolios. Its aim is to optimise the speed and quality of data integration across asset types, input sources and geographic locations. The company will also use FactSet’s fixed income analytics to gain a single global multi-asset covariance matrix and analytics coverage across developed, emerging, and frontier markets.

Chin-Jen Chang, head of global data management and solutions at Nikko Asset Management, says: “We are excited to work with FactSet as it has demonstrated coverage for our diverse range of fixed income investments.”

FactSet introduced a new linear risk model following a January 2017 tie-up with Axioma, a US-based provider of enterprise risk management, portfolio construction and risk and regulatory reporting solutions. The relationship made Axioma’s linear fixed income and multi-asset class model available through FactSet and expanded the number of multi-asset class risk models already on the platform.
