BOT Deputy Governor Presents Honours at Thomson Reuters FX Trading Awards

London, Bangkok - 28 March, 2013 - Thomson Reuters, the world's leading source
of intelligent information for businesses and professionals, announced the
winners of its fourth annual Thomson Reuters FX Trading Awards for Thailand's
financial community. The annual Thomson Reuters FX Community Forum took place
in Bangkok yesterday and was officiated by the Bank of Thailand's deputy
governor, Mrs Pongpen Ruengvirayudh.

At the Thomson Reuters FX Community Forum event, Bank of Thailand deputy
governor Mrs. Pongpen Ruengvirayudh addressed an audience of distinguished
financial professionals on the challenges brought by "the great rotation" -
the flow of funds from bonds to equities - as the markets have responded to
the improved confidence in the global economy this year.

Foreign exchange trading conditions in Thailand continue to be positive
against the backdrop of stable economic growth, according to Thomson Reuters
data. Thailand's economy has rebounded successfully since the devastating
floods in 2011 and this year the country's economy is expected to grow 5%,
according to the World Bank, further strengthening its already growing FX

Thomson Reuters has a long history in Thailand and in 2006 became the first
organisation to introduce electronic trading of the Thai Baht (THB) against
the US dollar through its electronic Matching service. Last year the company
launched Matching for Thai Baht (THB) onshore swaps, which has provided
additional trading opportunities for financial institutions based in Thailand.

"Thomson Reuters commitment to deliver an improved and diversified line of
solutions and services across the FX markets is long supported by market
participants in Thailand," said Nigel Fuller, sales director Asia, treasury
transaction services at Thomson Reuters. "Our recent acquisition of FXall
nicely complements our existing Thai Baht Matching business and we are
supporting the FX market in Thailand like never before."

Thomson Reuters acquisition of FXall, the leading multi-bank electronic
foreign exchange platform, in August 2012 positions the company to deliver the
most innovative FX services available across the entire spectrum of price
discovery, execution and post-trade services.

Foreign exchange is the world's most-actively-traded asset class and continues
to generate significant interest from the global trading community. In
February 2013, Thomson Reuters reported average global daily FX spot volumes
in excess of US$137 billion over its foreign exchange trading platforms, while
FXall trading volumes reached US$110 billion.

Thomson Reuters annual FX Awards for Thailand aims to promote transparency and
liquidity in the Thai foreign exchange market and to recognize its importance
to the broader Thai economy. The Thai FX Award winners were determined based
on trading volumes and pricing contributions on Thomson Reuters electronic FX
trading platforms.

"The awards are given not only for outstanding business achievements, but also
to recognise the notable efforts made in enhancing the market's efficiency,"
said Pongpen Ruengvirayudh, deputy governor, Bank of Thailand.
