Registered Rep.'s redesigned Web site, RegisteredRep.com, is more than an online version of the print magazine. It is intended to be a useful resource for all investment professionals. If you're looking for the latest news on what the firms are doing or on what regulators are up to, check out our Online REPorts, which are posted on the front page of the site.
The site has been reorganized to make it easier to find information. There are three main sections:
Like the section of the magazine for which it is named, this is the place to look for information and insight that can make your investment-advisory practice take off. From selling tips to marketing ideas to regulatory questions, we offer real-world advice and tried-and-true techniques.
This is a virtual trove of analysis of all sorts of investing instruments and strategies. From mutual funds to hedge funds and from ADRs to junk bonds, we've got insight into all the products you sell.
Everybody wants to attract high net worth clients. But how? Here's how. Our extensive collection of tips on how to find and care for wealthy clients is updated every month. Learn how to deal with tricky estate-planning issues or how to prepare a pitch for that special client.
In addition, the site has new features that go beyond anything we have done in print or online. Most notable is the access to independent research through Argus Research. When conflict of interest rules on Wall Street have brought the importance of independent research to the forefront and Registered Rep. has responded by making these research reports available online. At http://argusresearch.registeredrep.com, users can view reports such as Economy at a Glance, Viewpoint, Quarterly Viewpoint Outlook, Special Situations & Screens, Portfolio Selector, Market Watch and Weekly Staff Report. It also includes the ability for users to view research on more than 300 public companies. RegisteredRep.com users can preview our Argus Research on a free 30-day trial.
Look for more new services as we partner with other data sources whose timely information and analysis will make a daily trip to registeredrep.com worthwhile.
