In short, we built Morningstar Advisor Workstation specifically for registered representatives with the intent to deliver independent research, high-quality investment data and portfolio analytics, and “point of sale” reporting capabilities that are compliant (e.g. FINRA reviewed reports), easy to understand, and ultimately help financial advisors communicate the value of their investment advice. Blog pic 2.PNG
