  • Our new company is called Thomson Reuters. The company will operate under two divisions – Thomson Reuters Professional and Thomson Reuters Markets – unified by the common goal to provide the world’s professional markets with Intelligent Information to create Knowledge to Act. The Professional Division houses predominantly the assets of the former Thomson companies in Legal, Healthcare, Scientific, and Tax & Accounting. The Markets Division unites the tremendously complementary assets of Reuters and Thomson Financial to serve the world’s financial services professionals and the global media community.
  • Thomson Reuters Markets. Our purpose is to power markets everywhere . We help our customers by providing the news, data, software and distribution they need to drive their firms forward. We provide transparency to markets, which allows them to develop, and we give our clients neutral access to the data, liquidity, and content to allow them to compete on a global stage. Through many different lenses the merger of Thomson Financial and Reuters is a perfect marriage. The strong European and Asian footprint of Reuters combined with Thomson Financials depth in the US and Canadian markets will provide a larger global community for all of our customers. Reuters strengths in real time market data and news with Thomson Financials strengths in deep historical and insight based content and analytics will provide our customers with all of the information they need for any trading or investment decision. Additionally, Reuters traditional focus on the sell side with Thomson’s buy side and corporate market footprint creates one community where all the players in the world’s markets can now meet - in a unique, large and global electronic marketplace - "The Professional Internet.” For example Sell-Side execution to buy side trading; Investment banking advisory to corporate development offices; Corporate investor relations and buy side investing.
