Online research provider Skaffold has relaunched its digital researching tool which it says will make it easier for SMSF advisers to engage better with their clients when investing in companies in Australia and overseas.

Skaffold said its research tool is a multi-platform application capable of delivering “institutional-grade” stock research for ASX and global stocks.

Speaking at a lunch in Sydney yesterday, Skaffold general manager Chris Batchelor said as clients look to diversify investments inside their SMSFs, Skaffold’s research tool will assist advisers access relevant information so their clients can make informed decisions.

“We are seeing a trend where technology is taking off in a rapid way,” Mr Batchelor said.

Skaffold founder Rodger Montgomery said the research tool will also provide a stronger basis for discussions between advisers and their clients.

“Skaffold is really designed to be a platform for discussion – so if the client understands why an adviser is telling them to invest in a particular stock,” Mr Montgomery said.

“It enables that discussion to occur in a way that actually enhances the reputation of the adviser – it is designed to make the adviser look good,” he said.
