Kevin Marcus, President, Thomson Financial’s Corporate Group, said, "We are pleased to partner with Reval, an acknowledged leader in the corporate treasury space. As we continue our movement into the treasury market with Thomson ONE, having demonstrated functionality such as Reval’s FAS 133 derivative accounting, is essential. Our alliance with Reval directly benefits Thomson ONE Corporate clients."

"The combination of Reval’s hosted solution with Thomson Financial’s market data and content will make Thomson ONE an even more powerful integrated solution for global treasury departments," said Jiro Okochi, Reval’s CEO.
