Assureweb is set to launch an adviser service designed to support its full range of annuity quote options, including conventional and with-profits annuities.
The Annuity 'Detailed Quote' tool, available from the end of January, will also include a medical and lifestyle questionnaire allowing advisers to obtain the best enhanced annuity rates for their clients in seconds.
Ian Teague, commercial director at Assureweb, says 'Detailed Quote' was launched to help improve its service following IFA and provider feedback.
The launch follows the enhancement in November of Assureweb's 'Quick Quote' service and completes its bid to strengthen and simplify its annuity service into a two-step process.
"We anticipate that these developments will significantly improve the efficiency and effectiveness of annuity product research in the market and it is pleasing that we have received a great deal of adviser interest in our developments," Teague says.
"With the retirement market expected to grow in size over the coming years, the development of 'Detailed Quote' annuity service is perfectly timed to help advisers get the best rates for their clients in the shortest possible time."
Assureweb says 'Detailed Quote' already has a number of providers linked to it, including LV=, Norwich Union and Legal & General, and hopes to add more in early February.IFAonline
