   Offer Compliance Solutions To Small And Mid-Market US Financial Services

LONDON, 21 February, 2013 - Thomson Reuters, the world's leading source of
intelligent information for businesses and professionals, today announced that
it has entered into an alliance partner agreement with Chartwell Compliance, a
Washington-based provider of consulting, testing and outsourcing services in
the areas of regulatory compliance, financial crimes prevention, and
enterprise risk management.

While regulatory requirements continue to grow, compliance teams are showing
signs of resource constraints limiting their ability to perform vital
compliance functions. A recent survey by Thomson Reuters showed that more than
a third of compliance professionals say they spend more than an entire working
day each week in simply staying up to date with regulatory changes and
assessing their impact on the business. Firms must increasingly leverage the
latest technology to optimize their compliance capabilities and reduce the
cost and time associated with compliance processes.

This partnership alliance will bring together Chartwell Compliance's expertise
in consulting, testing and outsourcing for small and mid-market bank and
non-bank financial service providers in the U.S. with the audit, risk
management and compliance-related software available via the Thomson Reuters
Accelus suite of products.

compliance technology assets and delivery with leading human capital
solutions, localized best practices and market awareness," said Michael C.A.
