Eikon is a set of software products provided by Refinitiv for financial professionals to monitor and analyse financial information. It provides access to real time market data, news, fundamental data, analytics, trading and messaging tools.

The main product runs on Windows and lets users compose customized views on multiple screens. It also extends Microsoft Office with data retrieval addins. Eikon subscribers can access Eikon data from their smartphones,[1] iPad, or from a Web browser.[2]

History[edit]

Thomson Reuters launched Eikon in 2010[3] as a replacement of Reuters 3000 Xtra, Reuters’ earlier platform. In October 2018 Eikon was transferred to Refinitiv as a result of a larger deal between Blackstone and the Financial & Risk business of Thomson Reuters[4].

Pricing[edit]

At the end of 2013, an Eikon subscription was reported to cost from $300 to $1,800 per month, the average setup being around $800 per month.[5]
