Barclays Wealth is launching a new structured product website featuring a host of new and improved sections designed to aid advisers' understanding and usage of protected investments.
The new website, accessible via barclayswealthprotectedinvestments.com, has been designed to be as clear, informative and as easy to use as possible.
Key developments include the introduction of pricing for closed products - enabling IFAs to track the performance of their clients' investments for the first time - and a new maturities section, where information on products within three months of their maturity date is displayed (including latest prices and the level of the index or asset at the start date).
Other developments include a new product section, which allows advisers to access literature and product information more easily, and a new page which features a number of online animated presentations on products and structured products in general.
The new website will be the first in a number of online developments Barclays Wealth has planned for the coming months.
Colin Dickie, director, Barclays Wealth, says: "Protected investments feature increasingly prominently in client portfolios and it is essential that advisers have easy access to the most comprehensive, transparent, up-to-date information available.
"Our new website has been designed to be as helpful to advisers as possible and allows them for the first time to track the performance of their clients' investments, while also giving them easy access to all the other crucial information they require.
"The new website is the first in a line of major developments we have planned for the coming months and we will be consulting comprehensively with advisers to enable us to deliver these in the most practical and helpful way possible."
