Reuters will create 100 new editorial roles around the world and recommence its plan for a paywall under an expansion of its partnership with the London Stock Exchange Group (LSEG).
Refinitiv, a former division of Thomson Reuters owned by LSEG since 2021, began a 30-year agreement with Reuters in 2018 to be the exclusive distributor of the agency’s news content to the financial community.
In an expansion of their partnership, announced on Tuesday, they made a joint commitment to invest in 100 editorial roles across the Reuters global newsroom in four main areas: financial markets, mergers and acquisitions, the energy transition, and data visualisation to bring stories to life.
Reuters will also see “significant expansion” in growth markets India and China, including the doubling of the number of reporters covering India.
