Web 2.0: Reuters will launch financial Social Network

img Reuters Logo  Reuters is planning to launch this year a financial network for fund managers, traders and analysts similar to MySpace.

The web site will be exclusive to Reuters’ subscriber base of about 70,000. “…People don’t want to have 100 friend requests from teenage girls in Florida if they are trading the credit derivatives market, but they probably are interested in being able to share research…” said Tom Glocer CEO of Reuters.

Reuters intents with this web site to provide a platform to the financial service community to post and communicate around their research, services or trading models.
