Looking ahead to 2007
As I write this review we are already well into 2007 a year that has begun strongly for Reuters. Our principal goal this year is to accelerate the growth in revenues begun last year while bringing a greater proportion down to the bottom line in profits.
This will be achieved, in part, as revenues from Core Plus increase through the year.
Well also continue to focus on improving customer service through investment in Reuters infrastructure and through instilling a service culture at Reuters. Toward this goal, I am personally leading a drive to simplify our processes, our technology and our organisation.
In my recent meetings with customers around the world I have been encouraged both that general market conditions appear to be favourable and that the specific areas we are targeting under Core Plus are expected to be in high demand. In particular, the growth of electronic trading is now indisputable.
