IFAP plans directory of IFA net sites

IFA Promotion and the Financial Information Net Directory website are joining forces to provide a customer directory of IFA websites.

Customers can search for IFA websites and gain direct access to the sites.

All IFAP members with a website will automatically get a standard entry on the site. IFAP is also offering members a 33 per cent reduction on the cost of an enhanced directory entry in the IFA section.

IFAP and Find hope the directory will help to raise the profile of IFA web services in the UK.

Find launched its website in 1996. It operates as a directory of more than 4,000 UK financial websites and gets 200,000 hits a month.

IFAP marketing director David Elms says: “We aim to exploit technology to prom-ote the benefits of unbiased advice to consumers as broadly as possible and this alliance with Find represents another substantial expansion of our online presence.”
