New York, September 9, 2020 – New York Life Investments, in partnership with Visual Capitalist, today announced the launch of Advisor Channel, a data visualization platform offering financial advisors easily accessible and digestible educational material on critical capital markets and investment trends.

“Financial advisors are facing a rapidly evolving landscape with ever-changing client dynamics and expectations, shifting investment behaviors, and pronounced market volatility – making it more crucial than ever that they have access to tools and platforms that sort signal from noise and distill valuable market insights into easy-to-access content,” said Ian Forrest, Chief Marketing Officer at New York Life Investments. “Our newly-launched Advisor Channel harnesses Visual Capitalist’s expertise in developing engaging, nuanced, and data-rich visualizations alongside our commitment to providing high-quality educational resources, allowing us to deliver compelling and insightful material to our clients through a uniquely accessible medium.”

Advisor Channel is an online resource developed in partnership with Visual Capitalist, featuring regularly updated, visually stimulating, and data-driven educational infographics and charts on the noteworthy markets and economic trends affecting financial advisors. The data visualizations are also available as posters and can be printed and shared in accordance with the needs of financial advisors and their clients.

“Advisor Channel’s illustrative style infographics and charts help financial advisors, at-a-glance, evaluate and understand an emerging market or economic trend, while also providing them with high-quality instructive material that they can, in turn, use to engage and educate their clients as they seek to continue to build long-term, lasting relationships,” continued Forrest.
