The Exchange has revamped its Exweb portal to align it more closely with the business requirements of IFAs.
The new look and feel is based on feedback from IFAs. The Exchange says it is now more closely aligned with IFA requirements to research, quote and buy financial products electronically.
The redesign of Exweb also includes a section called the Research Centre, which provides intermediaries with a single access point to a suite of research services.
Additional services now available include revised product databanks that cover a wider product range, an enhanced annuity quote service that is consistent with Exweb's other quote services and generates client specific quotes and easier access to providers' product literature
David Child, chief operating officer at The Exchange, says: “Our intention with Exweb is to develop a fully transactional trading platform that links intermediaries with product providers to enable electronic research, quotations and transactions of financial products. The launch of the Research Centre and the new look and feel are important steps in this process.”
