Thomson Reuters Launches Davos World Economic Forum News and Analysis App for Eikon Users
NEW YORK/LONDON – Thomson Reuters has launched a World Economic Forum (WEF) app on its flagship desktop product Eikon, a one-stop location for market data, news, and analysis leading up to and through the 2017 WEF in Davos, being held January 17-20.
The 2017 WEF is convening under the theme of “Responsive and Responsible Leadership” with a focus on five crucial priorities including preparing for the fourth industrial revolution and revitalizing global economic growth. Eikon Davos app content aligns with these themes by giving users access to key analysis tools related to social responsibility and environmental, social, and governance (ESG) data. Thomson Reuters offers one of the most comprehensive responsible investing analysis tools, with 400+ ESG metrics for 6,000 listed companies.
The Davos app also features ongoing WEF-related news and opinion from Reuters journalists, and a portfolio of related economic and financial market charts from Thomson Reuters Datastream, in collaboration with Fathom Consulting. The app further provides links to other relevant Thomson Reuters Eikon solutions and Reuters features.
