Award recognises Thomson Reuters commitment to innovation and increasing breadth of coverage

LONDON - NEW YORK / ACCESSWIRE / April 16, 2014 / Thomson Reuters today announced that it has been recognised as ‘Best Data Provider to the Sell Side’ at the Sell-Side Technology Awards 2014. The awards are designed to highlight the leading technologies and third party providers to the sell side and are voted on by a panel of judges made up of senior sell-side professionals and Waters magazine staff.

Thomson Reuters was recognised for its expansion of the breadth and depth of data available to customers, as well as the innovative enhancements it has made around search, data analysis and ease of use across its products – across asset classes and in specific areas of foreign exchange, commodities and equities.

The award in particular highlights the addition of new search capabilities into Eikon, its flagship desktop offering, alongside social media and news sentiment monitoring tools. It also reflects developments made over the last year to Elektron, Thomson Reuters suite of trading and data propositions. These include the expansion of the global Elektron hosting footprint in Asia Pacific and the addition of a tool providing increased insight into benchmark submissions and contributed data.

“We are honoured to have been recognised for our innovation and our drive to bring the most valuable data and analytics to our customers,” said Peter Moss, managing director, Financial, Thomson Reuters. “Thomson Reuters remains committed to providing our customers with actionable insight delivered in a fast, intuitive way.”

“The Sell-Side Technology Awards are designed to acknowledge and reward those companies that provide significant benefits to their end-users and the industry as a whole,” said Victor Anderson, editor-in-chief of Waters magazine and Waters Technology. “Thomson Reuters has a long heritage in this area and continues to demonstrate its commitment to bringing the latest technology innovations to its customers, particularly when it comes to providing a broad range of industry-leading data, for which this award is so well deserved.”

Thomson Reuters Eikon has been designed to provide a powerful and intuitive next-generation solution for consuming real-time and historical data and to connect the financial markets community and the professionals within it. It realises Thomson Reuters vision for a financial markets desktop that is connected, informed, intelligent and open and provides access to a messaging community of over 210,000 financial professionals.

Thomson Reuters Elektron is a suite of trading and data propositions that power the enterprise and connect global markets. Elektron delivers low latency feeds from thousands of exchange-traded and OTC markets, along with analytics, a platform and transactional connectivity to support financial workflow applications. Elektron also powers the Company’s flagship desktop, Thomson Reuters Eikon. All of these capabilities can be deployed at a customer location or delivered as a fully managed service from any one of Thomson Reuters co-location and proximity hosting sites around the globe.
