eRollover (http://www.erollover.com), an online consumer destination focused on retirement planning, today announced it will provide the U.S. open-end mutual fund platform from Morningstar to eRollover members to research trailing performance, as well as the Morningstar RatingTM for Funds, via proprietary analytical tools.
“Our research shows people want objective advice, easy-to-use tools, and a great user experience in planning for financial independence,” Tim Harrington, CEO of eRollover, said. “This agreement with Morningstar will allow our members access to the Morningstar platform via various investment tools and screeners. Specifically, our members will be able to research mutual funds performance as well as current Morningstar Ratings for funds.”
”We’re pleased to be able to work with eRollover to provide our comprehensive mutual fund data to its clients,” said Dan Waryck, senior vice president of licensed data for Morningstar. “We share a common commitment with eRollover of putting investors first and providing them with the tools and information they need to make better-educated investing decisions.”
Harrington said eRollover was formed to fill a void in the availability of retirement planning information to the public at a time when people were frustrated over diminishing value in their IRAs and 401(k)s, and not knowing what to do. “The mission of eRollover is to enable people to take control of their retirement and achieve financial independence by providing unique, independent content, so they can make informed decisions about their future.”
