Thomson Reuters warns of more cuts as City shrinks

Thomson Reuters has warned staff that an “unprecedented” downturn in the City means the news agency will be “accelerating” its cost-saving plans, cutting headcount and reducing its travel and entertainment budgets.

In a staff memo seen by the Daily Mail, the head of Thomson Reuters’ financial markets division, David Wenig, said: “We will be relentless about costs and efficiencies and restrictions on headcount will be followed to the letter.”

The financial data arm makes up 60 per cent of Thomson Reuters’ profits – but as redundancies sweep through the City, demand for the group’s trading terminals and data services has fallen.
