    Bilateral Chat - Making it easier for you to do business whilst maintaining the highest standards of compliance

    The new Bilateral Chat functionality within Eikon Messenger gives users the flexibility to create a conversation between up to two companies in a fully secure and compliant environment.  This reduces administrative burden, improving efficiency whilst also giving you complete confidence that all conversations are conducted in the most compliant way.

    Thomson Reuters Messenger Compliance helps you meet regulatory requirements and manage business risk

    Our suite of compliance solutions enable you to set policies that regulate the behaviour of Thomson Reuters Messenger users at your firm; capture all content generated by those users and access the data via our hosted archiving service or via a feed for import into your incumbent archive environment.

    A trusted, secure and auditable solution

    Thomson Reuters recently partnered with the New York Times to explore the issues that the industry still faces in its quest to regain trust.
    If financial institutions are to avoid further erosion of trust, it’s necessary to address instant messaging security. Eikon Messenger provides a single instant messaging solution that’s flexible and open enough for everyone in the industry to use. It is customizable according to a firm’s security needs, so traders can be restricted from messaging other departments or competing firms. The open architecture means that the system is fully auditable – it’s always possible to find who is saying what.

    Get the insights on events that move markets

    Messenger is your gateway into a number of by-invitation chat groups for specific assets and markets, each moderated and curated by expert Reuters journalists.
    Breaking news reaches chat groups first, giving you a head start on market moves and what it all means. You will receive an overnight summary email and preview of news and events that will affect the market the next day.
