FactSet, CGB in OEM link
February 9, 2018

FactSet, a global provider of integrated financial information, analytical applications, and industry-leading services, says it has agreed a strategic relationship with CG Blockchain, a developer of blockchain technology for the investment industry. FactSet says its clients will have access to CG Blockchain products through BCT Fundstore. CG Blockchain's current and future clients will also use FactSet's Portware execution and order management capabilities, delivered as FactSet OEMS, for trade execution, analysis, order generation and compliance efforts.

FactSet describes FactSet OEMS as a configurable, "thinking" order and execution management system designed to act as the central platform for the creation and execution of trading strategies across asset classes.

Combining it with CG Blockchain provides real-time, immutable recording of transactions to a distributed ledger, helping investors achieve new levels of transparency and security, adds FactSet.

Said John Adam, Senior Vice President, Global Head of Portfolio Management and Trading Solutions, FactSet: "Hedge funds and asset managers are looking to adopt disruptive technologies; meanwhile, global regulatory authorities are demanding increasing levels of transparency and accountability to protect the end investor. It is critical for established technology partners like FactSet to continue to evolve our solutions to both meet current client needs and set the standard for future technology initiatives globally."
