Fidelity FundsNetwork has announced it is to team up with the online intermediary portal, Assureweb, to offer quotes on its Investment Bond.
The investment platform says the “significant link-up” will see quotes for the FundsNetwork Investment Bond become available on the portal site, in addition to still being available through FundsNetwork itself.
It says the deal will also allow the 25,000 registered users of Assureweb to produce comparable and single company bond quotes, without having to leave the online portal.
Nic Burton, head of insured propositions at FundsNetwork, says as choice is one of its watchwords, the platform is delighted the link-up with Assureweb will give advisers another option for obtaining quotes.
Burton adds: “Assureweb offers a highly thought of and user friendly service, along with a large range of products and providers to choose from. Portals provide advisers with the ability to improve service and efficiency by conducting business electronically, something which FundsNetwork also strives to achieve.”
Meanwhile, Stephen Wynne-Jones, director of sales and marketing at Assureweb, adds: “We are very pleased to be working closely with FundsNetwork for the benefit of our users. Offering quotes for the FundsNetwork Investment Bond on Assureweb means we can provide additional choice and functionality, without advisers having to leave the portal they are familiar with.”
