ATLANTA, May 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Invesco today announced the launch of the SVAnalyzer, a tool that simplifies the comparison process across a range of stable value characteristics. The SVAnalyzer was developed to serve as a comprehensive tool to best evaluate stable value options for users. With the inclusion of ten important evaluation criteria, the SVAnalyzer inherently educates the advisor/consultant to compare product criteria which may otherwise have been overlooked.
"The SVAnalyzer allows consultants or advisors to small- and mid-size plans a simple tool for comparing different stable value funds," said Jeff Hemker, National Sales Director, Retirement. "Consultants and advisors now have their own tool to use that quickly and simply provides them a side-by-side comparison of stable value funds with the ability to modify different factors or weightings--depending on their specific needs."
The SVAnalyzer delivers a comprehensive comparison of stable value products/managers across multiple characteristics and data points in an easy to analyze report. It also offers consultative analysis to users, by allowing the advisor/consultant to provide a subjective ranking across 10 important evaluation criteria which also can be weight adjusted based on level of importance.
