Defaqto boosts its Aequos database

Defaqto has enhanced its Aequos database products and made them completely accessible online.

The research company’s customers who previously received the Aequos database on CD now receive either Aequos Engage, the adviser dedicated database, or Aequos Online, the database for paraplanners and adviser platforms.

Defaqto has enhanced Aequos Engage by adding equity release and Defaqto’s QuantRater. There have also been technical advances such as the ability to save session work and to integrate with most main back-office systems and web-based quotation portals.

Defaqto adviser national account manager Roger Perry says: “Our success with Aequos Engage has been achieved by working closely with our customers to ensure the product meets their requirements.

“There is no room for complacency in this very competitive market and we will continue to improve the product features to the benefit of both IFAs and their customers.”
