Refinitiv has appointed Richard Mably as Head of News Performance to enhance the value of Refinitiv’s extensive news coverage to help power and advance the financial community. 

Refinitiv is the largest distributor of news to the global financial community, with more news sources than any other provider and over 40,000 customers in approximately 190 countries.

The appointment will enhance Refinitiv’s role as a distributor of trusted news to the global financial community. Richard will bring his extensive editorial experience to Refinitiv, with a remit to identify and invest in the most valuable news to customers.

Richard has extensive journalistic and editorial experience across some of the world’s leading news agencies, with 25 years at Reuters across a number of roles, including EMEA editor and global editor for financial markets and commodities. He has also held roles at AP-Dow Jones and Platts.  

Refinitiv has invested heavily to expand news coverage on the Refinitiv Data Platform in response to demands from customers for market moving insight across the globe. Refinitiv now carries news from over 10,000 sources up from 7,000 thousand sources two years ago.

Richard’s editorial experience makes him perfectly placed to maximise the value to Refinitiv’s customers from the Reuters News agreement.

“At a time of global trade wars and critical elections shaped by intense political discourse, trusted news is more important to the financial community than ever before,” says David Craig, CEO of Refinitiv.

“Market participants need instant access to high quality news they can trust from a variety of sources so they can stay ahead of complex, fast-moving and globally connected markets. Richard’s incredible experience as a journalist and editor will help us to further enrich our news service for customers.

“As the regulations governing news distribution shift in different countries, Richard will play a key role in our governance around news distribution so we can most effectively balance the needs of our customers, our commitment to trusted news and the regulatory requirements we operate under.”

“With customers in approximately 190 countries, Refinitiv already has incredible global news distribution to connect market participants with trusted information that moves markets in microseconds,” added Richard Mably.

“I’m excited about working with customers, partners and suppliers to build on Refinitiv’s market-leading news distribution.”
