Thomson Reuters, the world's leading supplier of intelligent information for businesses and professionals, today announced that it has introduced a suite of integrated analytical tools designed specifically to provide junior investment bankers with a more productive and efficient approach to deal-making.
Thomson Reuters Advanced Analytics is accessible via a single Thomson Reuters tab within Microsoft Office and comes with full access to Thomson Reuters content via the Thomson ONE desktop.
Advanced Analytics is an intuitive and robust set of tools which enable junior bankers to perform key tasks like screening, building league tables, completing comparable analysis and creating pitch books, all without leaving the Microsoft Office suite. As junior bankers spend a substantial part of their day working in Excel, Advanced Analytics will allow them to access Thomson Reuters world-class content directly in Excel with easy linking capability -- allowing them to seamlessly drop charts and analysis into PowerPoint.
"Tighter budgets and resource constraints require junior bankers to maintain ever higher levels of productivity," said Ellen Pinschmidt, global head of Investment Banking at Thomson Reuters. "Advanced Analytics will enable junior bankers to address all the steps in their workflow within a single unified access point in Microsoft Office, resulting in increased productivity. Spending less time gathering data and more time analyzing it will help users to gain the competitive edge that is increasingly important in today's marketplace."
