Website to cut service costs for IFAs

Software company CCL is setting up an IFA website that provides a range of services at a reduced cost or free of charge.

The website offers IFAs access to calculators for pensions, investments, tax and mortgages and provides generic illustrations on the costs of products at www.ifacomplete.co.uk.

It also allows IFAs to print reason-why letters,the latest FSA compliance documentation and download a free, easy to understand fact-find form.

To boost its aim to become a one-stop shop for IFAs – especially those who are new to the industry – the service provides a number of links to websites from companies including Skandia, Cofunds and Moneyfacts. There is also a link to LawAssure, which provides legal documents and advice to small businesses.

Managing director Nick Bewley says: “We felt that a website offering a number of valuable services all under one umbrella would serve to further enhance our value to the IFA of today. We will continue to build on our philosophy of supplying IFAs with the best possible tools to assist them in their business practices.”
