Columbus, Ohio — Today Nationwide Financial (NYSE:NFS) launched a new Web site, www.nationwide.com/rpsales to provide investment professionals with tools and resources they can use to help build their retirement plan business.
“Our industry moves at an incredibly fast pace and we’re always looking for ways to make it easier for investment professionals to work with us,” said Joe Frustaglio, national sales manager for Nationwide Retirement Plans. “There are no gimmicks or games on this site. We’ve created a resource where they can quickly access actionable sales ideas to help them better meet their clients’ needs and be more effective in the retirement plan business.”
The new Web site features:
