New York - Thomson Reuters is extending its instant messenger capabilities to the buy-side professionals who use its recently-acquired REDI execution management system.
The integration of Eikon Messenger with the Thomson Reuters REDI system will provide improved pre-trade workflow for REDI clients through a single platform that aides compliance and enables them to communicate with over 300,000 financial markets professionals.
"Instant messaging is a key part of a buy-side trader's pre-trade workflow," said Michael Chin, managing director and co-head of Trading, Thomson Reuters. "Hot on the heels of our acquisition of REDI in January 2017 it makes perfect sense for us to bring the power of Eikon Messenger to the Thomson Reuters REDI community as a first step in the wider integration program."
