Thomson Reuters has launched a global range of indices to help monitor global markets, benchmark specific countries, regions and sectors, and develop investment vehicles.

This is the first time the company has provided indices under the Thomson Reuters brand.

Thomson Reuters Indices cover 44 countries and 18 regions, and have an overlay of global, regional and country indices by economic sector. The 800 indices in total have been created using a proprietary liquidity filter that links liquidity and investability, and selects constituent equities based on price not volume, as traditional filters do.

The indices use Thomson Reuters’ business classification system, which covers 71,000 public and 230,000 private companies worldwide. The sector indices range from broad market segments, such as the Thomson Reuters Global Energy Index, to very specific, such as the Thomson Reuters Emerging Markets Asia Telecommunications Index.

All Thomson Reuters Indices are accessible via desktops as well as data feeds, in products such as Thomson Reuters Portfolio Analytics, Reuters 3000 Xtra, and Thomson Reuters Datastream.

Sunand Menon, global managing director of indices at Thomson Reuters, says: ‘In this market more than ever, investment managers, quantitative analysts and other financial professionals need reliable, accurate and cost effective indices. Thomson Reuters launched its indices business in response to client needs. We believe the marketplace will benefit from our depth and breadth of coverage, our rigorous methodology and classification system, and our independence and brand."
