The content extends across television ratings, advertising spending, movie box office and media asset ownership.

The move underscores FactSet’s continued focus on integrated data-related products and services within its analytical suite. With the market adapting a quantitative approach to save time, reduce operating expenses and increase work efficiency, the company’s innovative product suite should benefit.
