Refinitiv, formerly Thomson Reuters Financial & Risk, may be only a few days old, but it brings a wealth of experience to 40,000 customers around the world. We’re not doing it alone.

Our open platform hosts over 2,000 partners, from niche fintech startups to large corporations such as Salesforce and SAP, allowing Refinitiv to offer a dynamic combination of data, insight, technology, apps, and news from Reuters and thousands of other sources to meet any customer need, supported by our in-house expertise.

We want to facilitate the connections that propel people and organizations to find new ways to thrive in a fast-paced, ever-changing market. Our open ecosystem and a focus on high performance are differentiators. Refinitiv is committed to working with customers, colleagues, and partners to propel the industry towards progress.

Access to information benefits workers in all areas of the financial markets, whether they be in investment management, wealth, trading, banking, corporate treasury, market data, risk, compliance, or technology. We believe that equal access to information benefits everybody in the market so we will work with customers facing obstacles to shape the right solution, bringing together our expertise and experience and the depth of our open platform.

David Craig quote

Our partnership with Squirro is an excellent example of how the strategy works. Squirro’s technology, which leverages the power of CRM systems, helps firms gain a comprehensive view of their customers by bringing together proprietary and third-party data into an easily usable format that provides a clear view of any market.Predictive capabilities help users generate new ideas and strategies, allowing firms to become more creative in their approach to solving business challenges. Refinitiv data makes Squirro’s technology an even more powerful tool for our customers.

Similarly, our partnership with SAP makes it easier for companies to manage risk and to satisfy their regulators. Our World-Check data is a crucial piece in an organization’s customer, supplier and third-party risk management workflow.

By integrating this key data with SAP Business Partner Screening, customers can more easily automate screening on their transactions and operations. Organizations can feel confident they have a powerful tool to manage some of the most complex tasks they face in today’s global marketplace.

Predictive analytics and risk management are just two of the areas where we’ve chosen to partner in order to bring the best blend of innovative thinking and technology to solve problems or create opportunities. Our open platform is the foundation of our customers’ long-term success as evidenced by the many accolades we have received.

The future is now. As Refinitiv moves forward, we’ll be looking at new ways to increase partner involvement and give them greater input into how the open ecosystem evolves, creating new avenues for them to share their innovations with our customers. Our ability to provide access to choice and opportunity makes Refinitiv the primary destination for financial services firms seeking to outpace change and reshape the financial services industry.
