Thomson Reuters Corporation : Thomson Reuters Price Challenge Tool Adds Accuracy and Transparency to Fixed Income Market

AskTRPS Enhancement Allows Users to Raise Evaluated Pricing Inquiries via
Customer Interface

NEW YORK - April 16, 2015 -
Thomson Reuters, the world's leading source of intelligent information for
businesses and professionals, today launched AskTRPS, an enhancement to
Thomson Reuters Pricing Service (TRPS). This independent price challenge
tool provides fixed income professionals with a rapid and transparent
solution to submit and resolve evaluated pricing challenges directly via
Thomson Reuters DataScope Select, the strategic global data delivery platform
for non-streaming content.

AskTRPS enhances the ability to meet new Public Company Accounting Oversight
Board, SEC and other current reporting requirements for fixed income pricing.
Utilizing the tool, DataScope Select clients can create customized reports
for boards and auditors on their price challenges including the number of
challenges, asset class breakdowns, percentage changes and directional
movement. AskTRPS also offers simplified client reporting on price challenge
metrics and improved communication features.

"At a time of rising market volatility and increasing regulatory oversight,
our price challenge mechanism answers a clear need in the fixed income
community," said Jayme Fagas, global head of Valuations&Transparency for
Thomson Reuters Pricing and Reference Services. "With AskTRPS, our DataScope
Select customers tell us they now have the enhanced single-source transparent
solution that only a completely independent third party evaluated pricing
source can provide."

In developing the price challenge solution,TRPS canvassed its large,
fast-growing client base of asset managers, mutual funds, custodian banks,
mutual fund administrators and risk managers, who use the DataScope Select
repository of over 2.5 million fixed income securities, derivatives and bank
loans. The goal was to create a solution to provide added information
supporting the price evaluations delivered by TRPS's global team of 150
evaluated pricing experts and over 5,000 content specialists, who are in
constant contact with market participants. This new tool will also help to
streamline communications and better address clients' regulatory reporting
needs.

DataScope Select already offers in-depth information on each underlying
security, including price history, derived analytics, pricing inputs,
transparency, tolerance breaks and unchanged price details. TRPS evaluators
currently process, clarify and resolve numerous price challenges per month,
and TRPS aims to incorporate this DataScope Select information into the price
challenge process, to provide additional data behind challenges.

The AskTRPS mechanism allows DataScope Select users and TRPS evaluators to add
comments to an assigned or resolved challenge within 36 hours of submission.
They also can upload relevant information with each challenge, such as trade
data or market color. Additionally, clients are alerted via email when a
price challenge has been resolved. These features improve the communication
between clients and evaluators.
