National Mutual quotes pensions on-line


National Mutual is launching an on-line quotation service for personal pensions in February.


The service aims to provide IFAs with instant access to on-line quotations through a free internet-based service.


IFAs will be able to key in the details of a client, giving the system the information it needs to generate a shortlist of suitable products.


National Mutual research manager Eric Rettien, said: “The key benefits to IFAs will be less duplication of data capture and a reduction of the time spent trying to get a suitable shortlist together for the client.”
