Where do the most newsworthy economists get their news?

What types of financial and market insight does Reuters provide?

Daniel Burns, Reuters Editor - Americas Economics and Markets

Our global team of correspondents delivers exclusive news and insight that sets the agenda for policymakers and investors.
Reuters is on top of every economic twist and turn on topics such as the next target for asset purchases by the European Central Bank as part of its massive quantitative-easing program, the Bank of Japan tweaking its own policy toolkit and the brazen theft of $81 million of Bangladeshi funds from the New York Fed.

Our coverage is not limited to the world’s largest developed markets. We have scores of reporters in bureaus throughout the emerging markets around the globe, lifting the lid on economies from China to Argentina and Nigeria to the Philippines.

What tools does Thomson Reuters provide that help investors with benchmarking and predictions?

Reuters news on Eikon

We offer the most comprehensive economic polling available. Reuters supplies the benchmark forecasts relied upon by market participants and economists for everything from the monthly U.S. payrolls report to quarterly gross domestic product readings for dozens of countries.

Our polling is second to none in both breadth of coverage and depth of respondents, and is routinely referenced by economists and investors worldwide. Eikon users can see this in action by using the code “POLLS” to launch the polling app.
