New direct debt and equity research handbook launched for NZ financial planners
New Zealand's financial planning community will, for the first time, be able to access the latest direct debt and equity research on the biggest Trans-Tasman companies following the launch of the quarterly, Rapid Ratings' NZ Adviser Research Handbook.
The publication content is provided by credit

by investment publishing house brillient!, and distribution,
exclusively through its online information and tools service
for NZ financial advisers, www.financialalert.co.nz
For an annual subscription fee of AUS$495.00, subscribers will receive the quarterly Research Handbook, which includes:
* A feature research article, * The proprietary Rapid Ratings' debt securities Optimal Yield Curve, * Details of the top debt buys and sells based on Rapid Ratings' assessments of over 60 listed and unlisted debt issues, * Details of credit ratings and buy/sell/hold signals and the top buys and sells from the Trans-Tasman Top 100 companies, along with a series of relevant one page reports.
(For more information on the Handbook, see the attached PDF brochure)
The subscription also provides access to an exclusive Rapid Ratings' reports website where subscribers can purchase detailed equity reports on a selection of 250 of the largest listed companies in Australia and New Zealand as well as debt rating reports on more than 60 New Zealand debt issues.
Dr, Patrick Caragata, managing director and CEO of Rapid Ratings, said: 'Objective, accurate and timely information on New Zealand debt and Trans-Tasman equity markets is in short supply. The handbook and related website will give financial planners the research tools they need to ensure they yield significant and improved returns for their clients.'
Graham Rich, director and publisher at brillient!, added: 'With regulation looming for financial advisers, and an ever increasing array of direct debt and equities being available to investors, and recommended by advisers, the Research Handbook is a timely innovation to assist better advice practice.'
