LOUISVILLE, Ky.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--DPL Financial Partners (“DPL”), one of the leading insurance networks for registered investment advisors (“RIAs”), today announced an agreement with Pacific Life to begin offering two of the insurer’s guaranteed income products to DPL’s over 400 RIA member firms. The addition of Pacific Odyssey® and Pacific Index Advisory® brings the number of commission-free annuity and life products available to DPL members to more than 30 products.
“As we continue to work to bring commission-free products from top carriers to the RIA market, we are thrilled to offer Pacific Life’s no-load annuities to DPL members,” said DPL Founder and CEO David Lau. “These products are great additions to our lineup of value-driven solutions for income, and each offers unique features that fiduciary advisors and their clients will appreciate.”
For example, Lau noted that Pacific Index Advisory, a fixed indexed annuity (“FIA”), offers a simple, one-time rate cap that remains in effect for the duration of the initial guarantee period (unlike most FIAs, where the rate cap can re-set annually). He added that at just 0.30%, the mortality & expense and administration fee for Pacific Odyssey makes it a competitively priced, commission-free variable annuity.
For Pacific Life, the relationship furthers its reach to fee-only advisors. “We know that forward looking RIAs are eager to deliver efficient lifetime income options to their clients as they transition from wealth accumulation to distribution,” said Doug Mantelli, vice president of RIA Strategy at Pacific Life. “We are excited to work with DPL to expand access to our products and solutions to RIAs.”
The Pacific Index Advisory Fixed Indexed Annuity and Pacific Odyssey Variable Annuity will be available on the DPL platform to DPL members in March 2020.
