As the world’s leading news and information company, we not only reach more than a billion people worldwide with our Reuters News coverage, but we also generate and consume news across all of the professions that we serve. For more insight on the importance of news across our business, we talked to several of our leaders to gather their thoughts on how we provide our customers with the news they need, when they need it, regardless of what profession they are in. Here’s what Andrew Rashbass, Chief Executive of Reuters, had to say:
“News matters. It holds politicians to account; it tells us how our taxes are spent; it enables efficient markets; and it satisfies our curiosity about the world around us. In short, news helps society to be free, prosperous and informed. With 2,700 journalists in over 200 locations around the world, Reuters produces more than two million stories, 680,000 pictures and 100,000 videos each year. Our news is viewed by over 1 billion people every day, including more than half a million professionals through our financial, legal and tax and accounting products.
Our customers value our knowledge, speed, accuracy, breadth, freedom from bias and, crucially, our ability to deliver the specific news and the insights they need to help them succeed.”
