22 January 2013  |  1014 views  |  0 Source: Thomson Reuters

Thomson Reuters today announced the launch of the world's first 24-hour, global, cross-asset chat community for financial markets professionals.

The Global Markets Forum is accessed through the Company's flagship messaging system, Thomson Reuters Messenger, which is available either via the Company's next-generation desktop Thomson Reuters Eikon or as a standalone service to the financial community.

The Global Markets Forum is an invitation-only community moderated by Reuters editors that is focused on providing financial markets professionals with access, via live chat, news, video interviews and commentary, to the opinions of world-leading thinkers on the macro-economic issues impacting global markets. The Global Markets Forum also offers customers unique networking opportunities, allowing participants to establish new connections while seeking peer opinion.

Building on the success of Thomson Reuters specialist chat communities in areas such as foreign exchange, oil and emerging markets, the Global Markets Forum aims to be the go-to community for individuals seeking to understand and digest developments in the global financial markets. A series of major live community interviews being held during the World Economic Forum will see key members of the event's delegation joining the forum to discuss important issues of the day with Thomson Reuters customers. Every week, guests from financial markets, newsrooms, academia, central banks and government will be invited to answer members' questions and help to give them a clear view of the global economy and financial markets.

"Thomson Reuters is focused on helping to connect financial markets professionals around the world. Now, with the Global Markets Forum, we are providing an opportunity for those focused on global markets to meet, exchange ideas and build community - regardless of the desktop they use," said David Craig, president, Financial & Risk at Thomson Reuters. "At Davos this week, Thomson Reuters will be providing community members with unrivalled access to some of the world's key influencers, enabling them to gain insight into areas such as the global economic recovery, the Eurozone and China. This, along with access to our leading Reuters journalists, is a unique benefit to our customers."
