Online purchasing services improved

EMX, the online messaging service for the purchase, sales and valuation of unit trusts, has speeded up the process by which intermediaries can input orders to product providers.

EMX chief executive Caroline Lee says: “There has already been a substantial increase in the number of messages being placed by intermediaries as a result of the easier access screens.”
