The homepage can only be described as busy, with a host of options on the far left taking you to sections such as news, markets, funds and pensions. The markets such as the FTSE 100 are on the right and the main headlines are in between the aforementioned information. The latest stock market figures scroll by continuously below the main stories.
The site is dedicated with keeping investors up to date with the relevant financial news of the day including why BP’s share price is continuing to fall and how the Australian government’s tax on miners caused the FTSE to fall. Their personal finance section helps visitors find better deals on pensions, mortgages and home and car insurance. If you have a portfolio, there is a section for you to view all these investments simultaneously.
