Morningstar has struck a deal to provide America Online users with access to its retirement planning service, known as ClearFuture. The arrangement marks the first time that the service will be offered on a large scale via a non-financial services company.

The deal amounts to an expansion of the relationship between Morningstar and AOL, by which the ClearFuture service will be added to a bevy of other fund research tools that are already included in AOL’s proprietary content. Morningstar said it has provided AOL users with fund research tools since 1994.
