Financial services technology firm Refinitiv has launched a new artificial intelligence (AI) assistant for Microsoft Teams to provide financial professionals with stock market news and actionable insights.
Refinitiv AI Alerts - which is powered by technology from AI specialist ModuleQ - uses permissions and Microsoft 365 interactions to automatically learn the user’s individual priorities and recommends content based on email conversations and upcoming meetings.
“Microsoft Teams has become an indispensable platform for professionals across financial services, with institutions accelerating their adoption, and increasingly integrating critical data and tools into the platform to simplify the workflow and user experience of professionals,” said Andrea Remyn Stone, group head of data and analytics at London Stock Exchange Group, which owns Refinitiv. “Refinitiv AI Alerts brings critical content and insights to Refinitiv’s customer base within this platform, allowing users to discover and act on timely information across Teams, Refinitiv solutions and Microsoft 365 seamlessly.”
The new solution is the latest result of Refinitiv’s partnership with Microsoft, which has previously helped financial services organisations connect, collaborate and leverage data to make more informed decisions.
“As Microsoft Teams becomes increasingly important as a platform for financial services, we welcome partner solutions such as Refinitiv AI Alerts which combine the best of market-leading data, AI and workflow to provide our mutual customers with even more value from our relationships,” said Bill Borden, corporate vice president of worldwide financial services at Microsoft. “We look forward to continuing to build on our partnership with Refinitiv to bring additional value-added solutions to the industry.”
According to David Brunner, CEO of ModuleQ, the new solution enables users to spend less time searching and more time using the information to inform their decisions and relationships. "Refinitiv AI Alerts sifts through the multiple information sources these professionals need, and brings them just the key actionable intelligence they need, at the time they need it, within the digital collaboration tools they are using," he said.
