Thomson Reuters Corporation : Thomson Reuters Expands Index Series with Western Eurozone Mid & Small Cap Total Return Index

Asset and investment managers now have a total return index that only includes
small and mid-cap companies enabling them to more accurately measure the
sector and make better informed decisions

NEW YORK/LONDON, December 14, 2016 -
Thomson Reuters has expanded its index series by providing a total return
index that includes only companies that are classified small and mid cap.
TheThomson Reuters Western Eurozone Mid&Small Cap Total Return Index
is market capitalization weighted and is designed to include only companies
that can be genuinely considered small and mid cap, due to market cap being
the primary selection screen and free-float the second criteria. This
selection methodology limits the number of components to around 300 to make
the index tradeable. Thomson Reuters worked closely with a group of asset
managers who provided input to the definition of small and mid cap for the
index to ensure a robust methodology.

TheThomson Reuters Western Eurozone Mid&Small Cap Total Return Index
can be licensed by ETF providers and used as a benchmark or as a research tool
by asset and investment managers seeking a convenient and transparent view
into the small and mid-cap sector. The index limits the number of components
to around 300 helping to further define its small and mid-cap universe and
contributes to its appeal as a tradeable index. It is not just a sub-index of
theThomson Reuters Global Equity Index
series, but has a different selection and weighting criteria to achieve its
very specific objective. The calculation methodology and treatment of
corporate actions remains the same as the Thomson Reuters Equity Indices.

"Asset and investment managers are constantly searching for pockets of
investment opportunity within specific sectors of the market," said Stephan
Flagel, Head of Benchmarks and Indices at Thomson Reuters. "As a leading
provider of indices, we are keen to work with investment professionals to
provide differentiated content and solutions as we show in the form of the
