TrustNet wins IFA white-label deals

IFA Allenbridge Group and Bankhall&#39s IFAengine portal have signed a deal to white-label TrustNet&#39s online information tools, incorporating them into their consumer websites.

The deals mark the first stage of TrustNet&#39s strategy of expanding its presence in the IFA market through white-labelling its web-based portfolio tools across the IFA market.

Customers of Allenbridge Group and Bankhall members using the IFAonline portal will be able to use TrustNet&#39s valuation tool to give customised data on their UK fund and equity investments.

TrustNet has between 40,000 and 80,000 monthly users for its data on unit trusts, Oeics, investment trusts, splitcapital investments, venture capital trusts and exchange traded funds.

The service also offers daily updates of more than 90 currency exchange rates and 330 world indices.

Sales and marketing director James Jones says: “The web solutions business we have developed forms part of TrustNet&#39s aim to encourage IFAs to make better use of the internet as a business development tool.

“Initial interest in the port-folio tool from Allenbridge and IFAengine suggests there is a need among IFA companies to enhance their online services and at the same time streamline their client management process.”

Allenbridge Group group managing director Anthony Yadgaroff says: “As a discount broker, we have always felt that people want to be kept up to date on what is happening. With this technological addition, clients will be able to look at the website any time and check the value of their investments.”
