Thomson Financial to offer Associated Press news reports to financial community


Thomson Financial, a key operating unit of Thomson Corp. (TSX:TOC), is teaming up with The Associated Press to offer AP news reports to the financial community.

Following a similar arrangement with The Canadian Press news agency, announced earlier this month, the agreement with AP Digital, a commercial division, gives Thomson the rights to expand its current news product by including content from AP.

``As we continue to expand our news capabilities, we see the AP as an ideal partner, with the depth of resources and understanding of the value of news, that will allow us to continue to differentiate Thomson Financial from the competition," Sharon Rowlands, CEO of Thomson Financial, said in a release.

Thomson Financial, which competes with Bloomberg, Reuters and Dow Jones news companies in offering specialized data to brokers, traders and others in the financial community, also has a partnership with Agence France Presse in Europe.
