The National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors (Naifa) has unveiled a new Web site for its 80,000 members which features Standard & Poor's research offerings in equities and insurance rankings.
The site, called Naifa Advisor and co-sponsored by both organisations, was launched at Naifa's annual Career Conference, currently taking place in Salt Lake City.
The site offers a full range of Standard & Poor's analysis of mutual funds, stocks, capital markets, and insurance company ratings. It allows subscribers to find new investment ideas, screen stocks or funds, run NASD-approved hypothetical illustrations, access Standard & Poor's corporate research reports, and look up insurer financial strength.
Dan Connell, executive managing director of retail market services at Standard & Poor's, says: "With access to such well-known Standard & Poor's products as FundAdvisor, MarketScope, Stock Reports and Corporate Profiles, members using this site will have access to the same research tools as institutional investors and traders in investment banks."
