Toronto, Canada, 8 September 2011 - Reuters Breakingviews, the world's leading source of agenda-setting financial insight, has launched a daily column in The Globe and Mail, Canada's national newspaper. The column will feature up to two considered views from the Reuters Breakingviews team on the Globe Investor page of The Globe and Mail's Report on Business section and will also be available on www.globeandmail.com. The deal sees The Globe and Mail secure exclusive rights to English content from Reuters Breakingviews in Canada.
"We are thrilled to be bringing the distinctive voice of Reuters Breakingviews to The Globe and Mail and are confident our agenda setting commentary and opinion will be a welcome addition to the pages of the paper and their online presence," said Rob Cox, editor, Americas, Reuters Breakingviews. "This agreement also expands the global syndication and reach of our influential commentary, which now appears in 12 of the world's most respected newspapers."
"Reuters Breakingviews provides Globe readers with astute analysis and insight on business news from Reuters columnists in financial centres around the world," said Elena Cherney, editor of The Globe and Mail's Report on Business. "It's a must-read on global developments, and yet another reason to start your day with The Globe."
The agreement with The Globe and Mail sees the paper join the ranks of The New York Times, The International Herald Tribune and Le Monde in syndicating content from Reuters Breakingviews.
Reuters Breakingviews, founded in 1999 by editor Hugo Dixon, was acquired by Thomson Reuters in December 2009 and is now Reuters' brand for financial commentary.
