Financial market participants gain real-time access to opinion from leaders in
economic, financial and political affairs via new global chat forum on Thomson

attendees at the World Economic Forum in Davos this week.

LONDON, NEW YORK, 22 January 2013 - Thomson Reuters today announced the launch
of the world's first 24-hour, global, cross-asset chat community for financial
markets professionals. The Global Markets Forum is accessed through the
Company's flagship messaging system, Thomson Reuters Messenger, which is
available either via the Company's next-generation desktop Thomson Reuters
Eikon or as a standalone service to the financial community.

The Global Markets Forum is an invitation-only community moderated by Reuters
editors that is focused on providing financial markets professionals with
access, via live chat, news, video interviews and commentary, to the opinions
of world-leading thinkers on the macro-economic issues impacting global
markets. The Global Markets Forum also offers customers unique networking

members of the event's delegation joining the forum to discuss important
issues of the day with Thomson Reuters customers. Every week, guests from
financial markets, newsrooms, academia, central banks and government will be
