AltaVista Canada Features i-money Financial Services

i-money, a Canadian financial services site, and AltaVista Canada have negotiated to offer i-money's popular features through the new AltaVista Canada Money Channel.

"i-money is a wonderful addition to the AltaVista Canada site," said AltaVista Canada product manager, Mark Murakami. "By making their services accessible on our portal, Canadian Internet users will find quick, current and credible financial information."

A new "Powered by i-money section" will provide features for RRSPs including fund and stock quotes and graphs, and mutual fund and investing glossaries. Enhancements are planned for later in the year and into 2000.

AltaVista Canada, a bilingual search engine, maintains an index of over 20 million Canadian web pages. AltaVista Canada's technology was developed jointly by TELUS, InterDynamix Corporation of Edmonton and AltaVista.

More than 20 leading financial service and information providers are members of i-money, including Charles Schwab Canada, TD Bank, National Trust, Canada Trust, and The Financial Post. i-money's alliance partners include Sprint Canada, Sympatico, Toronto.com and AOL Canada.
