Dow Takes A Workspace In London: It Signs Content Deal With LSEG

Dow Jones has formed a two-way partnership with LSEG (London Stock Exchange Group) to share news, data and analytics, Dow Jones announced. 

Starting on Tuesday, news from Dow Jones’s newsrooms will be available in LSEG Workspace. Premium LSEG subscribers can access content from The Wall Street Journal, Barron’s, Dow Jones Newswires, WSJ Pro, WSJ Opinion, Investor’s Business Daily, MarketWatch, Private Equity News and Financial News.

The goal is to deliver “the world’s best news, information and analysis to business leaders across the globe,” says Almar Latour, CEO of Dow Jones and publisher of The Wall Street Journal. “Combining the strength of both brands will serve the needs of LSEG Workspace users and enhance our newsrooms.”  

As part of the arrangement, LSEG’s existing subscribers will also receive access to Dow Jones’s text feeds. 



In turn, LSEG will provide Dow Jones with LSEG Workspace and workflow and productivity tools to support a data-driven newsroom. Dow Jones journalists will have access to LSEG content sets including Datastream, Fundamentals & Estimates, StarMine models, Pricing and Reference data and deals insights from SDC Platinum. 

The Wall Street Journal will benefit from LSEG’s data on deals and league tables across M&A and Capital Markets going back more than 40 years. LSEG will also be a principal deals data source, an arrangement that includes the WSJ Investment Banking Scorecard. 

In addition, LSEG and Dow Jones will co-develop an enhanced news experience within Workspace, curated by Dow Jones senior editors and tailored for the Workspace audience. Set to launch in early 2025 LSEG, it will be curated by Dow Jones senior editors.  

“The inclusion of the latest news, commentary and analysis from Dow Jones and The Wall Street Journal is a powerful new addition for our LSEG Workspace users,” says David Schwimmer, CEO, LSEG. 

Schwimmer adds, “Our partnership will also see Dow Jones benefit from our world class data and analytics capabilities to support a data-driven newsroom across all of its channels.”

In another Tuesday development, Dow Jones announced that it has acquired A2i Systems, a firm that offers AI-powered fuel pricing solutions. Terms were not disclosed. 

A2i will enhance Dow Jones’s AI capabilities. It will operate as a subsidiary of OPIS within the Dow Jones energy business.
