Skandia International today announces the launch of ‘International Knowledge Direct’, a new website that lets advisers access a wide range of technical support material from their computer at www.skandiainternationalknowledgedirect.com
Due to the global nature of Skandia International’s business, advisers want instant access to information, and this new site allows them to obtain as much as they want at a time which suits them.
A large range of topics are covered including the taxation of offshore bonds, trusts and the latest rules around retirement planning for UK expats.
Documents in the online library are filed under key topics together with a search facility giving advisers finger-tip access to the information they want quickly and easily. Articles can be found by entering a keyword, or by browsing through the menu which includes titles on retirement planning, trusts and inheritance tax, taxation and legal matters. Advisers can save or print the documents if required.
Furthermore, to ensure they don't miss out on updates to the library, advisers can sign up to e-mail alerts which will inform them of any new material uploaded to the library.
Rachael Griffin, Head of Product Law & Financial Planning, comments:
“The launch of International Knowledge Direct forms part of our commitment to technical excellence and demonstrates our support for international advisers in an area of great complexity. The online library is packed full of technical articles covering a wide range of financial planning areas. The website is available free of charge and accessible round the clock so advisers can access technical material at their convenience."
