What We Do
Market Metrics is a leading market intelligence firm that uses a unique combination of primary market research and management consulting expertise to build meaningful, long-lasting relationships with senior executives at asset management firms and insurance companies.
Each year Market Metrics conducts more than 25,000 in-depth surveys of financial advisors, brokers, research analysts, wholesalers, and gatekeepers. Leveraging this proprietary body of data, we help senior managers to better understand their competitive strengths and weaknesses, and how they can improve their relationships with customers and increase market share.
Our clients work with Market Metrics because we provide both high-quality data on their business and a proven ability to help them analyze, internalize and discuss the real, strategic implications of that data.
This unique combination has resulted in a business built on helping clients make informed decisions year after year that will improve their performance.
With relationships that include nearly every top asset management firm and insurance company in the United States who distribute through financial advisors, over 15 consecutive years of revenue growth, and extremely high client retention, Market Metrics has become a trusted partner in the financial services industry.
Why Now Is A Great Time to Join
In June 2010, Market Metrics was acquired by FactSet Research Systems Inc., a firm that combines integrated financial information, analytical applications, and client service to enhance the workflow and productivity of the global investment community. In addition to broadening the content and services FactSet and Market Metrics can offer common clients, the acquisition created an opportunity for Market Metrics to expand its product line and break into new markets. Post-acquisition our revenue has increased by over 70% and in early 2011 we launched our first study outside the United States.
A Unique Opportunity
One of the best aspects of working at Market Metrics is that we have been able to retain our small team culture even as we have merged with a larger company. With about 30 Analysts, Associates, and Principals, every single person makes meaningful contributions to our success, and top performers are recognized quickly. At the same time, we are able to leverage the knowledge, infrastructure, and capabilities of FactSet, a company with over 5,500 employees in offices around the world, a world-class software engineering department, and $806M in revenue for fiscal year 2012. Being part of FactSet has allowed us to expand into domestic and international markets previously beyond our reach. With several new initiatives in the pipeline, this combination will continue to yield major benefits in the years ahead.
Working for Market Metrics as a part of FactSet truly offers the best of both worlds: you can be a key member of a small, dynamic, and rapidly growing team while also enjoying the stability and resources of a well-established company that has been ranked on FORTUNE's "100 Best Companies to Work For" list.
Through FactSet, Market Metrics offers its employees a range of additional benefits, from free working lunches in the office to specialized training, reimbursement, and bonuses for passing the CFA exam.
