TULLETT FINANCIAL LAUNCHES NEW TREASURYMARKER(tm) SERVICE OVER REUTERS

London - 5th April 2004 - Tullett Financial, a leading provider of real-time money markets, interest rate derivatives and fixed income price information from the inter-dealer market, today announced the launch of its TreasuryMarker service over Reuters.

TreasuryMarker provides users with highly accurate real-time indicative bid/offer prices and yields for US, UK, Japanese, Canadian, German, Italian and French Government Debt. TreasuryMarker also includes information on US Agencies US TBA Mortgage Backed Securities, US Interest Rate Swaps & Swap Spreads and European Asset Swaps.

With more than 800 logical records (RIC's) available, TreasuryMarker can be used to efficiently drive spreadsheet and other analytical applications via Reuters "open" desktop and datafeeds. The data is also available within intuitive composite page displays that include comprehensive yield analytics.

TreasuryMarker's Government Bond data is derived from Tullett Financial's Global Pricing System (GPS). The GPS system leverages information from Tullett Liberty's broad broking activity including cash bid, offer & trade data, bond swap prices (switches) together with all associated futures data to derive highly accurate indicative cash bond prices on all issues across the yield curve for each country. In-house price reporters continually adjust prices based on customer sentiment and also calibrate sector sensitivities depending on the prevailing market volatility.

Commenting on the launch and the agreement with Reuters, David Mukerji, Director and Global Head of Sales for Tullett Financial said, "TreasuryMarker was developed to offer market participants a highly accurate single pricing service for global government debt that provides superior price discovery across the curve when compared with the sporadic availability of tradable broker prices, in particular with less liquid issues, and the disparate indicative market-maker contributions where spreads can be very wide and the contributors often lack price consensus.

Tullett Financial is committed to supplying market professionals with the very best financial information, therefore, we are delighted that Reuters has chosen to distribute TreasuryMarker over its market leading 3000Xtra product. "

Mark Robson, Global Head of Treasury & Fixed Income, from Reuters said, "Reuters aims to become the leading electronic broker for the global Treasury markets and best in class data is key to a complete offering. As Tullett Financial is a leading source of fixed income data, it was a natural decision to deliver its TreasuryMarker product over the Reuters network."

TreasuryMarker can be accessed now through Reuters page and is currently available on global free trial.
