A New Financial Portal

GoodDaySep 19, 2008: Today we came across Money.co.uk a new financial portal based in London. This site is well designed with a spacious layout, soothing colors and neat graphical icons based on the Web2.0 model. It has literally hundreds of articles about anything related to money like credit cards, mortgages, loans, insurance products, banking, investing, utilities and the likes. In addition their blog keeps us abreast of the latest happenings from the world of finance.

Money.co.uk has an attractive free, online comparison service that allows customers to compare a range of personal finance products and utility services. Its goal is to present information in a simple palatable format, enabling 'at a glance' initial comparisons to aid readers to make informed financial decisions. For example, within minutes we can compare mortgages to find the cheapest rates and the best mortgage deal for our needs using their comparator and varying parameters like rates, offset, buy to let, self certification, remortgage and more. On the same note we can use their credit cards comparison tool to find the most popular credit cards by playing with variables like APR, Decision Time, Introductory Purchase Rates and Duration, Balance Transfer Rates, Duration and Fees.

Since Money.co.uk is owned and managed by Dot Zinc Limited, which is authorized (registered under number 415689) and regulated by the Financial Services Authority (FSA) to conduct the regulated business of introducing mortgages and insurance products, it has got a beefy coverage about the insurance sector and related products. No matter what our insurance needs are, they've got comprehensive comparison tables and handy insurance guides to help us find better protection for less money. So if you are based in England, you can use their different comparison tools to generate charts for insurance coverage products related to varied assets like car, van, motorbike, travel, home, pet, and breakdown (auto). The charts provide us with brief details about the level of coverage provided and discounts offered by leading providers. Indeed it's a handy tool.

We were amazed by the site's breadth of coverage regarding various topics of personal finance. And they've got free newsletters for various categories. This will help its readers to selectively subscribe (by email or RSS feeds) to the topics presented at the portal in which they are interested. They also provide free user accounts so that their users can avail free services like setting up online reminders, downloading their money saving ebook, getting news from the movers and shakers of the money world, weekly money saving tips and more. Give them a spin :-).
