According to Structured Products editors, Thomson Reuters strong brand name, the extension of its modelling library and a new web services technology framework have all contributed to the company’s success in the technology innovation category.
“This award recognises the intelligence and hard work that have been put into Thomson Reuters independent evaluated pricing service, Thomson Reuters Pricing Service, which is a key area of growth,” said Marion Leslie, managing director of Pricing and Reference Services at Thomson Reuters. “We have focused on building out the necessary transparency information customers need to comply with regulations, as well as developing new intra-day timings for Asia and will continue to make this solution even stronger in the future.”
