Rich Newman

A highly respected and dynamic leader in the data technology arena, Rich established and led FactSet’s fast-growing Content and Technology Solutions (CTS) business unit, which provides off-platform financial data solutions and application technologies to investment professionals. While running CTS, Rich recognized the market opportunity inherent in cloud-based infinite processing and developed and drove FactSet’s entry into cloud-based solutions with Open: FactSet, moving the company into the burgeoning area of data science and alternative data. Before CTS, Rich pioneered and led FactSet’s high-growth Quantitative Investment Management group, creating desktop and off-platform products for quantitative users. Rich also founded Insyte, a leader in multi-dimensional and time series data solutions, which FactSet purchased in 2000.


I’ve been aware of RoZetta Technology and their deep expertise in data science since first meeting with them in Sydney several years ago, so I’m delighted to join the company’s Advisory Board. I’m looking forward to bringing my experience to a team of talented professionals with diverse backgrounds and skills – people who want to make a positive difference in the market.  Together, we’ll work creatively to solve client challenges and accelerate RoZetta Technology’s growth.
