Global index provider FTSE Group has completed the acquisition of Pensions Benchmark Corporation, a US-based quant business whose systems and database will be integrated within FTSE’s own operational framework to expand its in-house research capabilities.

PBC owner Tom Nadbielny has joined FTSE as quantitative research director, and will head the organisation’s three regional research teams, based in London, New York and Hong Kong.

FTSE says the integration of PBC enhances its ability to support clients’ use of its indices, create new customised indices and provide a range of performance and risk analysis.

‘Index users are seeking increasingly sophisticated indexing tools and associated data services,’ says FTSE Group chief executive Mark Makepeace (pictured). ‘The acquisition of PBC and appointment of Tom Nadbielny strengthens our capability to meet that demand and ensure FTSE remains an innovative and market-leading index provider.’

Says Nadbielny: ‘This is an exciting time to join FTSE, and to take its research function to the next level. Current market conditions mean that investors are seeking added value from index providers, and FTSE’s research teams are fully equipped to support the business as it continues to build market share globally.’
