London-based Henderson Global Investors has signed a three year contract for Thomson Financial's Web-based AgencyIR Channel and share register analysis (SRA) service to support its investment trusts.
Thomson's AgencyIR Channel includes the full range of investor relations (IR) activities, including investor targeting, analyst research, contact management and outbound communications such as Web casting. The Henderson contract was won in a competitive tender.
Stephen Phillips, IR director, investment trusts, Henderson Global Investors, says Thomson's shareholder analysis and investor relations services will "enable us to provide a market leading investor relations service to the investment trusts of our clients".
Separately, Thomson Financial is to begin distributing TSX Datalinx's real-time feed of CanDeal fixed income data to users of Thomson One Yield product. The vendor will also make the CanDeal prices available to all retail users of its Thomson One application in Canada.
Jim Fiesel, executive vice president, Thomson Financial, says: "Through this arrangement and the addition of CanDeal data through TSX Datalinx, Thomson One Yield has further strengthened its market data, with a first-rate source of Canadian fixed income pricing."
The CanDeal data is taken from Canada's six major domestic investment dealers. TSX Datalinx uses its LinxPointOne data distribution product to deliver and manage the CanDeal market data to various other data vendors.
