FactSet Integrates Van Eck's Market Vectors ETFs to Platform

FactSet Research Systems Inc. has announced the integration of Van Eck's Market Vectors Exchange Traded Funds, or ETFs, on the FactSet platform. Combined with individual securities, other funds, and ETFs in broad portfolios, the Van Eck data enhances the accuracy of portfolio performance and risk analysis. Van Eck's Market Vectors ETF and index data are available within FactSet reports on SPAR (Style Performance and Risk) and FactSet Portfolio Analysis, a holdings-based tool that lets portfolio managers study the performance, composition, and characteristics of a portfolio on an absolute basis or relative to a benchmark. With the addition of Van Eck's ETF and index data, FactSet users who hold those ETFs in their portfolios now gain the unique ability to expand and "look through" the ETF position into the underlying holdings. The first phase of the rollout will include Van Eck's fixed income ETFs covering international, investment grade and high yield credit, and municipal bond asset classes. Soon to follow will be equity ETFs.
