Dow Jones Newswires has signed a six-year agreement to provide a suite of real-time news and information products to Merrill Lynch.
The agreement, signed in January, extends Dow Jones Newswires' long-standing position as a primary news source to Merrill Lynch.
The largest class of users will continue to be within Merrill Lynch's Global Private Client Group, which includes the firm’s Financial Advisors, with news delivery over Thomson-supplied Wealth Management Workstations. As part of the agreement, ML advisors will also gain access to XML-based NewsPlus, which offers a quick, organised view of the day’s most important news, timely stock and bond market commentary and updates, and an easy-to-use search function.
Merrill Lynch's Global Markets and Investment Banking and Research groups and investment managers are also covered in the agreement, which additionally extends to the delivery of featured content to clients via the firm's online channels.
