The site also provides a range of financial news and information - such as mortgage rates and market news. You can even book overseas travel.

Other products and services to be added over the coming months will include mortgage and insurance broking, personal banking, investing in managed funds, or even financing a new car.

"With New Zealand being one of the most wired communities in the world, it is time for a dedicated financial transaction and information service to be offered. is that service."

"What makes special is that we offer users real choice. The people who use it are generally busy and have little spare time, so what we're offering is convenience, by allowing them to compare products and services from a number of providers at a glance. It's 'permission marketing' because it allows our clients to dictate how the sales process will work at every stage."

"It is an important step for consumers. They are able to learn about financial services and access a broad range of data, along with an array of transactional services."

"Quicken's vision is not to compete with existing financial services companies, but to bring them together in a marketplace, complemented by the world's leading personal finance software, to create a web and software relationship where consumers can manage their money," says Russell Hutchinson.
