Get to know more about FactSet with the Q&A below.
What’s the story behind the creation of your company?
FactSet was founded by Howard Wille and Chuck Snyder in 1978. Their partnership began in 1977 when the two were working on Wall Street.
As computers became more prominent at the end of the 1970s, Wille and Snyder thought that the industry was changing. They decided to set out on their own and test their idea for a company that could deliver computer-based financial information. At the time, companies had to purchase raw data directly from a vendor such as Compustat and then hire programmers to make the data user-friendly. Wille and Snyder’s vision would offer usable data directly to the client. Today FactSet consists of 9600 employees working from 24 countries.
