The workstation will offer the most comprehensive and tailored market data trading solution for Italian institutional and retail financial institutions. The new Mf/Thomson solution combines:
â¢ Italian-specific content and analytics from eClass with the full breadth and depth Thomson Financialâs market leading global content sets, including IBES earning estimates, M&A and capital market deal data, Worldscope fundamentals and ownership data
â¢ Both companiesâ network connections to ensure Mf/Thomson is fully compliant with the Italian markets

The first installation of the Mf/Thomson solution is near completion at one of the largest banks in Italy. The solution was chosen due to the serviceâs completeness and ease of use, offered at an overall lower total cost of ownership.
