Thomson Financial Crowned Best Software Provider At The Global Pensions Awards 2006


For Second Consecutive Year

London, 01/24/2006, Thomson Financial, an operating unit of The Thomson Corporation (NYSE: TOC, TSX: TOC), and leading provider of information and technology solutions to the global financial community, was this week declared Software Provider of the Year, at the Global Pensions Awards for the second consecutive year.

More than 1,000 pension funds were surveyed and asked to nominate a service provider from each of the 20 categories. Submissions from the shortlisted companies were then passed on to a panel of independent judges. The winners were announced at a ceremony at The Gibson Hall in London on Monday 23rd January 2006.

The judges were particularly complimentary, with one saying: “I voted for Thomson because they consistently deliver the best technology. Their customer care is also of an extremely high standard, and this is reflected by their in depth knowledge of how the asset management market place operates.”

Commenting on the award, David Bilbé, European Commercial Director, Thomson Financial, said: “To win the first Global Pensions Software Provider of the Year award last year was an achievement. It is particularly pleasing that our Thomson ONE open application framework has received this accolade for the second consecutive year, which reflects the positive impact it has made with our buy-side clients and with the judging panel. The fact that Thomson ONE can be configured to reflect the different needs of clients, together with the integration of our leading products, including Thomson Datastream and First Call, has helped to strengthen our position as a major player in the financial information sector”.

Alex Beveridge, Editor of Global Pensions, said: “The Global Pensions Awards are the only truly worldwide awards for the pensions industry. My congratulations go to Thomson Financial for winning this accolade again – finding the winners from all corners of the globe was no easy task.”
