GLOBAL -, the leading pensions and investments website, is being relaunched to improve navigation and speed up access.

"'s relaunch is aimed at providing our 23,000 registered visitors with clearer navigation and faster access to the very wide range of content on the site," said IPE Sales Director Tony Hay.

He added: "We've combined the News and Magazine search facilities and introduced 12 distinct content channels which will make searches much more efficient.

" first launched in April 1999. The introduction of the Daily News Alert in 2001 transformed the site into the leading source of news for Europe's pensions industry professionals. We simply want to make the site work harder for them by clearly signposting the most popular sections."

The new site should be up and running next week. The imminent changeover is the reason why some users have had problems accessing content on the site recently, with story links taking users to the home page.

As part of the change, there will be no stories on Friday July 21.
