Thomson Reuters unveils mobile market data

Thomson Reuters has launched a mobile version of its One suite, delivering financial information directly to handheld devices.

Thomson One Mobile for Investment Management delivers estimates, events, research and market data and news on global equities, indices and personal portfolios directly to Blackberries.

Using a standard Blackberry Enterprise or Internet server, the tool lets fund managers and analysts receive quotes, create portfolios, view charts and check out the most active stocks on the move. Users can also set alerts across multiple pricing and volume metrics as well as for news or halts in trading.

Commenting on the application, Eric Frank, president, investment and advisory, Thomson Reuters, says: "It provides direct access to Thomson First Call and Thomson Street Events, and allows one to monitor capital market trends around the world and stay connected to critical information, even when on the move."

The vendor says it is working with Pyxis Mobile to expand wireless options across the Thomson One suite - including investment banking, wealth management and corporate services.

In May Thomson Reuters teamed with Blackberry maker Research in Motion (RIM) to set up a $150 million venture capital fund that will invest in applications and services for mobile platforms.
