Thomson Reuters Enhances Flagship Platform
Thomson Reuters has updated Eikon so that it now contains all of its financial content sets in one platform to better support users in making connections between datasets, gaining insights, and generating new ideas.
Providing a mobile and desktop interface, Thomson Reuters Eikon covers all major financial markets, and is used for consuming real-time and historical data, enabling financial markets transactions and connecting with the financial markets community. Its news, analytics, and data visualization tools are aimed at helping users make more efficient trading and investment decisions across asset classes and instruments, including commodities, derivatives, equities, fixed income and foreign exchange.
The update will allow customers to access Institutional Brokers' Estimate System (I/B/E/S) estimates, Reuters news, StarMine quant models, environmental, social and governance (ESG) measures, a Deals database, fund ratings from Lipper, Datastream economics, and other products.
According to the company, these tools will allow Eikon users to improve their research process by screening companies using financial measures, quantitative models, and non-financial metrics such as environmental, social or governance data points. The tools will also enable investment professionals to more easily value securities across asset classes, with the ability to monitor their portfolios against real-time benchmarks at the portfolio, group, and security level.
Additional Eikon enhancements include Buy-Side Optimized Workflow (BOW), a dashboard tailored for buy-side equities traders; an expansion of commodities supply chain insights on Commodity Trade Flows; and Healthcare Intelligence, which uses content from Thomson Reuters Cortellis to offer drug pipeline data for a given medical indication.
Integrating the full scope of Thomson Reuters content and analytics into the Eikon workflow and visual experience is important for the research, portfolio management, and wealth advisory community, according to Ranjit Tinaikar, managing director, advisory and investment management, Thomson Reuters. As the search for high performing investments becomes more competitive, he noted, these enhancements will further support the company’s efforts to help clients find meaningful insights.
