The site, advisor.fidelity.com, now contains a new multimedia resource center called the Insight Center. A Fidelity release said the center is designed to give advisers easy access to timely, actionable sales ideas, Fidelity research, and market analyses.
“Having supported the sales efforts of thousands of advisers for nearly 30 years, we have developed a thorough understanding of the types of resources they value most,’ said Joe LoRusso, president, Fidelity Investments Institutional Services Company, Inc., in the release. “We built the Insight Center to give them access to a wide array of actionable information and ideas that are both thought-provoking and apply directly to their daily client work.’
More details on the features of the Insight Center, according to the company, will include:
