Financial market participants gain real-time access to opinion from leaders in economic, financial
and political affairs via new global chat forum on Thomson Reuters Messenger; first major live
chat events to be held with influential 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
opportunities, allowing participants to establish new connections while seeking peer opinion. 

Building on the success of Thomson Reuters specialist chat communities in areas such as foreign
exchange, oil and emerging markets, the Global Markets Forum aims to be the go-to community for
individuals seeking to understand and digest developments in the global financial markets. A
series of major live community interviews being held during the World Economic Forum will see key
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 invited to answer members' questions and help to give them a clear
view of the global economy and financial markets. 

"Thomson Reuters is focused on helping to connect financial markets professionals around the
world. Now, with the Global Markets Forum, we are providing an opportunity for those focused on
global markets to meet, exchange ideas and build community - regardless of the desktop they use,"
said David Craig, president, Financial & Risk at Thomson Reuters. "At Davos this week, Thomson
Reuters will be providing community members with unrivalled access to some of the world's key
influencers, enabling them to gain insight into areas such as the global economic recovery, the
Eurozone and China. This, along with access to our leading Reuters journalists, is a unique
benefit to our customers." 

Thomson Reuters Messenger is an enterprise-level instant messaging and real-time collaboration
solution specifically designed for the financial markets. It is open to all financial markets
professionals, regardless of the desktop they use, and has a community of over 190,000. It allows
financial professionals around the world to participate in a focused and authenticated community
consisting of customers, colleagues and business counterparties. Members can exchange market
information, ideas, insights and user-generated content securely, while benefitting from access to
the breaking news and views of Reuters journalists through specific, editorial-led communities
such as the Global Markets Forum.
