Another new spin to our CD-Rom

The Money Marketing CD-Rom this month introduces another innovation to the Investment Fund Index, the first interactive online investment key features service for IFAs.

You can now view and print brochure-quality documents from the CD-Rom using Adobe Acrobat technology as well as viewing and printing the normal wordprocessed documents.

The Investment Fund Index is our joint service with Interactive Investor linking real-time news, performance and unit-trust and investment-trust prices to the master key features screen. The latest edition is published on this month&#39s CD-Rom, due out next week.

The Investment Fund Index brings all the information you need to make a decision about an investment product into one place.

By going online through the internet, you can be sure that your advice is based on the most up-to-date information.

The service is based around our existing easy-to-use typical key features library.

When you highlight a fund or fund manager from our straightforward directory, the service automatically gives you the current performance history and the current unit price for the fund.

If you want to research the background to the fund, you just have to hit the news button for an automatic search for all the relevant articles which have appeared in Money Marketing for the past six months.

If you want more information from the fund manager, the website button will take you directly to their website.

If there are changes to existing key features documents or new documents published, you will automatically be notified of the changes and have the option to download the new documents to your PC.

If you do not currently have internet access, we have made it easy for you to get online.

The CD-Rom includes a low-cost internet access package from Interactive IFA, part of Interactive Investor, giving you full internet access from just £10 a month.

With the CD-Rom and our step-by-step guide you could be online in a few minutes.

If you have not yet registered to receive the CD-Rom, please call our cus- tomer services hotline on 0171-292 3739.

Money Marketing&#39s news and features for the past six months are now available online as part of Interactive IFA&#39s services on the internet at The full text of each week&#39s issue is available from Wednesday.



Do you think life offices should help financially bail out IFAs struggling with the pension review? “I think life offices have a moral obligation to help out IFAs.
