Alan Lakey, director of CIExpert said: "This extends the range of policies where we can provide the clarity of research and analysis that adviser's need to review the options with their clients."
Barry Pappin from adviser firm Vita said: "It's great to see CIExpert extending this capability, the information that the system provides enables us to rapidly assess the options available to a client and, just as importantly, enables us to convey the information to them in a way that is easy to comprehend.
"Wording definitions can offer what appear to be subtle differences but may carry a significant impact and the system quickly highlights these to the adviser".
