Hartford Financial Services Group Inc. has launched the Sales Assistant’s Corner, an online guide devoted expressly to meeting the professional needs of sales assistants to financial advisors. The site is available to over 30,000 assistants who are already registered at www.hartfordinvestor.com and offers free access to client management resources and information on current trends.

Hartford says the site is a result of its recent survey of sales assistants, which found that 75% would value a way to interact with others in their profession through a common community. More than half had little or no opportunity to network with peers, the company says.
