Desktop News

LSEG provide News to our Workspace desktop offering. This covers almost 10,000 news sources etc etc. This service is designed for individual users only and does not permit any redistribution or server side usage.

News Feeds

LSEG News Feeds address use-cases beyond our desktop offerings. While Wealth customers use News via portals for redistribution applications, News Feeds and Analytics are used by algorithms to create derived data, seize market opportunities, exploit inefficiencies, and manage risks. Our customers and partners use Real Time News Feeds to integrate published news headlines, stories and data derived from the feeds into their solutions and workflow.

Our news offering lies on three main pillars of support.

  • We are the exclusive provider of Reuters financial news, and Reuters' strong and international reputation of covering market moving news as it unfolds is the strongest and most exclusive feature of our News offerings.
  • The accompanying plethora of metadata and analytics available that can be delivered along with the news allow for machine and human consumption, and advanced search and filter methods to only target relevant news data.
  • Lastly, the multiple methods of Real-Time (ms) and archive delivery allow for speed of delivery to be customizable to client needs and can be low latent enough to trade algorithmically and automatically on. 

News Feeds are licensed primarily for programmatic internal end uses such as algorithmic trading, programmatic risk management, and market surveillance. Historical news data dates back as far as 1996 in select offerings.

 **Standard News Feeds licenses do not permit distribution or redistribution, even for client-derived data based on News content. Separate licenses and approvals are required for any end use of News Feeds content that is not completely both programmatic and internal. **
