Thomson Reuters Corporation : Thomson Reuters Launches eLearning Suite to Address Increasing Training Requirements for Financial Professionals

Thomson Reuters signs agreement with Present Value Training to expand its
eLearning solutions for financial professionals facing increasing training
requirements, starting in Asia

NEW YORK/HONG KONG, May 20, 2015 -
Thomson Reuters, the world's leading source of intelligent information for
businesses and professionals, today announced an expanded suite of eLearning
solutions for financial professionals facing increasing financial training
requirements.

The solutions will be made available exclusively in Asia before expanding more
broadly. Thomson Reuters has signed an agreement with Present Value Training,
the renowned provider of integrated learning solutions for the financial
services industry, to provide in-depth and localized eLearning libraries to
financial institutions in Asia, a response to increased training
requirements.

"It is essential that professionals in the financial industry receive
top-quality training to ensure regulatory compliance," saidAndrew Rawson
, global head of eLearning Development at Thomson Reuters. "The agreement
between Present Value Training, with its history in the financial industry,
and Thomson Reuters, with its background in compliance training, brings
together two global leaders to offer a solution of engaging industry and
market-specific training for financial professionals."

Thomson Reuters will integrate Present Value
Training'shttps://www.fitforbanking.com/tr/index.php

andhttp://www.fitforwealthmanagement.com/tr/products into the solutions it
currently provides financial institutions in Asia. The 'fitforbanking'
library includes over 180 modules designed for bankers and traders, from
basic topics such as fundamentals of quantitative methods and introduction to
fixed income, to more advanced topics such as derivatives and valuation of
structured products. The 'fitforwealthmanagement' library is more
specifically designed for private bankers with topics such as portfolio
management, investment strategies and financial planning. Currently Thomson
Reuters has more than 800 ethics and training courses delivered in over 42
different languages.

"With the increasing volume and complexity of regulations year-over-year, it
has never been more vital for firms doing business internationally to
continue to invest and support the compliance function by ensuring that staff
are adequately trained to meet these regulatory requirements," saidAndrew
Neblett
, managing director, Enterprise Risk Management, Thomson Reuters. "The
expansion of our eLearning suite of compliance solutions further reinforces
our commitment to provide our customers with solutions that enable them to
conduct business globally while meeting their growing regulatory
requirements."

"In the past ten years we have learned that most incumbent solutions in the
market only cover simple topics, or at the other extreme, illustrate the
complex topics ineffectively with too many words and terminologies,"
saidStefan Modrow
, founder and CEO of Present Value Training. "Eventually, some users lose
their interest and online training ends up becoming a short-cut to fulfill
mandatory continuing education requirements. We cater to the ever-evolving
learners' needs of keeping skills up to date with engaging and media-rich
content as well as relating the newly acquired knowledge to the daily
routine."

Thomson Reuters and Present Value Training will also be developing quality
content on a variety of local topics relevant to Asia, including the Hong
Kong-Shanghai Stock Connect in Hong Kong and ASIC regulatory guidelines in
Australia. As part of the training implementation process, Thomson Reuters
can customize courses to fit the customer's industry and policies.

Thomson Reuters eLearning provides practical, interactive, customizable and
cost-effective compliance training programs, which assist in changing
behavior and supporting a culture of integrity. More than 800 ethics and
compliance training courses delivered in over 42 different languages; powered
by world-leading regulatory intelligence, which tracks over 500 regulators
and exchanges globally; updated in response to key regulatory developments;
fully customizable to fit your organization's learning objectives; with a
comprehensive audit trail to demonstrate training compliance, an essential
part of your ongoing compliance and risk program. For more information about
