I want to thank David for his partnership in driving the acquisition to completion and his valuable contribution to the integration, which is progressing at pace.  I am delighted we have a world class executive of Andrea’s calibre to further develop our data, analytics and index capabilities.

Andrea Remyn Stone will take his place as Group Head, Data & Analytics from 1 July, 2021. Stone currently serves as Chief Product Officer, Data & Analytics and works closely with Craig on a smooth transition in the coming moments.

Schwimmer added:

With credit to David, he took a long term view when he first recruited Andrea.  Her appointment reflects the leadership bench strength in place across LSEG and our emphasis on developing strong talent.

It has been a privilege to lead the change and innovation in the Refinitiv business for the last nine and a half years.  I am humbled by the commitment and hard work of our people and the partnership with the financial industry throughout this time, especially during the COVID-19 crisis.

From the original separation out of Thomson Reuters to completing the sale of Refinitiv earlier this year, I am enormously proud of everything we have achieved and the potential for the business as part of LSEG.  Now, with the integration firmly on track and a strong performance in our first quarter as a combined business, I will support Andrea with the leadership transition we have been preparing for.

Refinitiv recently announced a partnership with MarketsMojo to expand its global reach. Refinitiv provides comprehensive analytics, tools and data to India’s first algorithm-based Fintech research platform, MarketsMojo, as it works to help expand the company’s stock market advisory services and broaden its worldwide range.
