Los Angeles, CA – June 16, 2003 – Integrated Decision Systems, an industry leader in portfolio management solutions, announced today that it has formed a strategic partnership with Thomson Financial, an operating unit of The Thomson Corporation (TSX: TOC, NYSE: TOC) and leading provider of information and technology solutions to the global financial community, to integrate IDS’ Performance Engine into Thomson ONE Advisor.

This partnership will provide clients of Thomson ONE Advisor with advanced performance calculations and reporting capabilities on the desktops of their financial advisors.
