A new website providing IFAs with free information and resources on annuities goes live at the end of this month.
The site, called www.askannuityIFA.com, is offered by Billy Burrows who was previously marketing director of Prudential Annuities and before that director of William Burrows Annuities.
Through the site, IFAs to provide their clients with better advice on the full range of annuity products.
Burrows already offers a consumer website called www.askannuity.com but the IFA site will provide unique features including a comprehensive range of current annuity rates where IFAs are automatically notified of any change. It also offers impaired and lifestyle annuities.
Online rates from leading providers of with-profit annuities are offered as well as free brochure downloads. It also provides explanations of new-style annuities entering the market.
Billy Burrows commented: "I know the difficulties facing IFAs advising clients on annuity options. There are now more options available than ever before, but it is often very difficult to find out simple information such as, who is offering the best rate or where to go for an impaired life quote?
"AnnuityIFA will solve that problem by providing all the necessary information in one place and once more the information will be bang up to date reliable, and free."
The website aims to make its money from sponsorship from annuity providers and by offering valued added services to IFAs.
IFAs can register interest in advance by visiting www.askannuity.com
