Pensions & Investments is on the Internet with a new look and a lot of new content.
The relaunched website, www.pionline.com, now offers full text of all P&I stories on the Monday of publication. Subscribers have access to stories that appear in the current issue, plus some graphical content.
On the home page, visitors now will find daily news on pension funds and investment management in the "breaking news" section.
The website also is home to other, separate parts of the P&I family: P&I Daily, a daily newsletter of news and business leads for plan sponsors, money managers and consultants; and P&I People, a weekly e-mail newsletter of the latest comings and goings in the investment management industry. Both products require separate subscriptions. An enhanced search feature offers archives of P&I stories back to 1994 as well as archives of stories from both newsletters.
The RFP, classified and career opportunity areas have been reorganized for easier searching. Searches by keyword or by category now are possible.
ePIPER, the online version of the Pensions & Investments Performance Evaluation Report, also is available by separate subscription. ePIPER is updated quarterly and gives subscribers screening and sorting functionality on 3,500 products from nearly 900 managers investing trillions of dollars for institutional clients. Detailed product profiles, style universe rankings and customized graphs are a few of the analytic tools available to ePIPER subscribers.
P&I's annual directories, including the profiles of the nation's largest pension funds and the ranking of money management firms, are available for viewing. The original data files also are available for purchase.
Regular biweekly and occasional breaking news alerts are free to subscribers and non-subscribers who sign up for the e-mail service.
Other features of the new website include an industry resource center, where "white papers" and press releases from outside firms are posted, and the conference calendar, which displays major conferences and gives readers a chance to post their own conference.
There's also a place for current surveys, giving firms a place to get forms for submission of data to P&I.
To register for the new site, subscribers can click on the "log-in" tab of www.pionline.com, insert the subscription number from the front page of the print issue into the subscription ID box, and follow the prompts to complete the process.
