In particular, Axioma will be assimilating FactSet’s risk models, in tandem with other financial data and risk management solutions capabilities. Conversely, FactSet clients will also benefit from the relationship by garnering access to Axioma’s fixed income and risk models.
The latest expansion builds on an existing collaboration between the two venues, which already sees Axioma’s equity risk models available to FactSet clients. Per the latest expansion, however, the entire spectrum of Axioma’s fundamental and statistical risk models can be accessed through Axioma Risk, the group’s risk management module.

According to JF Chauwin, Axioma’s Global Head of Multi-Asset Class Solutions, in a recent statement on the partnership: “In today’s dynamic landscape, flexibility, collaboration and integration are key principles in helping investment professionals successfully navigate risk.”
“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,” he explained.
“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,” added Robert Robie, Senior Vice President, Fixed Income Analytics, FactSet, in an accompanying statement.
FactSet has been relatively active lately, launching a new partnership with LiquidityBook last month, as well as strengthening its internal capabilities with the acquisition of Vermilion Software in December for $67 million.
