Data Awards 2021 Winner's Interview: FactSet

FactSet won three categories in this year’s IMD & IRD awards: best alternative data provider, best ESG data provider, and best overall data or service provider for 2021. Lisa Knoll, senior vice president, global head of marketing at FactSet, chats to Victor Anderson about FactSet’s trio of wins in this year’s awards, and the following topics:

  • What she attributes the firm’s consistent awards success to, not only across the data realm, but across a range of other technology categories too.    
  • How FactSet differentiates between ESG and alternative data, and the key aspects of the firm’s alternative and ESG data strategies/propositions. 
  • The extent to which FactSet has seen an increase in buy-side firms looking for ESG datasets as a means of satisfying end-investor demand for ESG-driven investments. 
  • What the buy side can expect from FactSet in the foreseeable future with respect to additional ESG and alternative datasets.
