M&G have announced a major step forward for the popular iView channel, which has seen it become an online platform in its own right.
The aim is to make iView into an essential portal for advisers who want the latest market insights, commentary and educational material.
iView was launched in May 2009 as the first interactive channel in the investment industry to offer bespoke fund information and educational content for advisers. At the time, it was compared to the BBC's hugely successful iPlayer service, thanks to the functionality it offered.
The iView offer has now developed even further to provide TV-quality news programmes from specialists in many fields of investing, alongside thought-leading documentaries and fund-specific videos. Contributors include M&G's top performing fund managers, a wide range of external content providers, such as The Daily Telegraph, Citywire and industry leading experts such as Dr Philippa Malmgren. A range of educational content will also help advisers with their continuous professional development.
Anne-Marie McConnon, M&G's Head of Pan European Marketing says, "Our success has been thanks to the content we offer. With these new developments, we hope to attract many more advisers to our service, while offering existing users more reasons to visit us regularly." All the information on iView is available online and to download, so advisers can get the latest information and insights at a time that suits them.
Following feedback from advisers, registration to the site has also now been removed - this ensures that every adviser can use all the aspects of the service from the moment they first visit.
Advisers can automatically receive CPD points but will need to register to receive this and email updates. In addition, iView is available through mobile devices and is integrated with popular social and business networking sites, so it is easy to share and stay informed.
