Reuters’ Kirby Calls Data Key to STP Strategy


LONDON--Tony Kirby has joined Reuters as group marketing director responsible for straight through processing. In that role, he will be looking at STP in terms of information as well as technology.

"Data is what it is all about, from trade capture down the cycle to confirmation, allocation, settlement and reconciliation," Kirby says.

Kirby will formulate an STP blueprint for Reuters, from which he will leverage Reuters’ data and talk to other data vendors about access to their reference data.
