The Association of IFAs and the Association of Mortgage Intermediaries have unveiled revamped websites.
Both organisations say the updated sites offer its members greater interactivity and new functions to help them meet their regulatory requirements.
New additions to both sites include a full industry events calendar, a consumer section to promote the value of advice, a full media centre, images of key contacts, an archive of press articles, and a career section to allow members to post and search for jobs.
Chris Cummings, director general of AIFA and AMI, says: “Many consumers come to AIFA and AMI as their first ports of call.
“Here they can learn about the different types of advice, what to expect from an adviser and, of course, find an adviser.”
AMI and AIFA has also introduced a ‘Top Ten Current Issues’ section which provides information and links on the issues currently exercising AMI and the mortgage intermediary sector in general.
Their top ten issues include: Treating Customers Fairly (TCF), Payment Protection Insurance (PPI), Equity release, and Home Information Packs (HIPs).
Cummings added: “We have added a new career section to allow members to post and search for jobs.
“It’s a useful place to start to promote a vacancy and attract new people. AMI and AIFA are often the first ports of call for the public to discuss career opportunities within the industry and we hope the Jobs On-Line section will help many to secure their next career move.
“Another new addition to the sites is a full events calendar which will detail not only our planned events, but also those of associate and affiliate members.
“This details where and when the event will be taking place and what events members of the AMI team will be speaking at.”
Cummings adds both sites continue to run their original feature on top of the new additions.
