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.

"This alliance combines globally reaching governance, risk management and compliance technology
assets and delivery with leading human capital solutions, localized best practices and market
awareness," said Michael C.A. Dempsey, global head of alliances, Thomson Reuters. "It demonstrates
our commitment to bringing leading compliance and integrated GRC solutions to the global community
as well as serving segments of the market where the ability to leverage technology and domain
expertise are crucial in helping them tackle an increasingly complex regulatory environment."

"Chartwell Compliance looks forward to providing its diverse and affordable range of professional
services to help financial institutions, payments processors, money services businesses and other
financial services provides survive and thrive in the wake of the financial crisis and strict post
9/11 anti-money laundering environment," said Daniel A. Weiss, president & CEO, Chartwell
Compliance. "We are honoured to partner with one of the industry's best-known providers of
governance, risk and compliance content and solutions."

Through the Thomson Reuters Accelus suite of solutions, the Governance, Risk and Compliance
business dynamically connects business transactions, strategy and operations to the ever-changing
regulatory environment, enabling firms to manage business risk.
