Thomson Reuters Corp (NYSE:TRI) today announces that its flagship financial desktop, Eikon, now offers all of its financial content sets from one platform.
As a result of the enhancements, Thomson Reuters Eikon customers get access to I/B/E/S estimates, Reuters news, StarMine quant models, a set of environmental, social and governance (ESG) measures, a Deals database, fund ratings from Lipper, Datastream economics and other products. By making all these content sets available in a single platform, Thomson Reuters potentially enables users to make more connections between data sets, gain unique insights and generate new ideas.
These tools are designed to allow Eikon users to speed up their research process by screening companies using financial measures, quantitative models, and non-financial metrics such as environmental, social or governance data points. Eikon is also targeted at investment professionals seeking to help them easily value securities across all asset classes in a given portfolio, with users able to monitor their portfolios against real-time benchmarks at the portfolio, group, and security level.
Eikon’s ESG database contains information on over 5,000 global companies and more than 400 metrics, including all exclusion (ethical screening) criteria and all aspects of sustainability performance, offering investors a tool for in-depth, socially responsible investment analysis.
Through App Studio, Eikon’s third party development suite, specialist applications and content can be easily integrated within the Eikon desktop. This open approach enables users to benefit from access to financial apps created by third party developers globally, built directly into Eikon.
Ranjit Tinaikar, managing director, advisory and investment management, Thomson Reuters, says,
“Eikon is seeing unprecedented growth among the research, portfolio management and wealth advisory community. The growth is driven by making the full depth and breadth of TR content and analytics integrated into the Eikon workflow and visual experience. The addition of ESG to Eikon is another important milestone in Eikon’s evolution for buy-side users. As the search for alpha becomes more competitive, these enhancements further reinforce our commitment to helping our clients find the insight to generate innovative investment ideas.”
