Jackson National unveils new web portal for investment advisors

LANSING—Jackson National Life Insurance Co. has introduced a new web page for independent Registered Investment Advisors (RIAs) and their clients.

The new online portal comes more than a year after Jackson National began making its products available through third party RIA distribution partners, including TD Ameritrade, DPL Financial Partners, RetireOne, and Financial Insurance Group.

The introduction of this new digital experience complements Jackson’s existing distribution channels, including independent broker-dealers and banks. These traditional channels will continue to service hybrid RIAs who maintain an affiliation with a broker-dealer, while iRIAs will now be serviced by six dedicated RIA consultants.

“Today’s announcement is a natural progression of our efforts to deliver Jackson solutions to more of the market,” said Scott Romine, president for advisory solutions of Jackson National Life Distributors LLC. “Our new online portal will create a positive end-to-end experience for iRIAs and provide greater choice in products and investments for meeting their clients’ unique preferences.”

The new portal provides clients of iRIAs with access to a suite of fee-based annuity offerings with no commissions or withdrawal charges, including Jackson Private Wealth, an investment only variable annuity; Perspective Advisory II, a variable annuity with add-on benefits; and MarketProtector Advisory, a fixed index annuity.

“A key element of digital transformation is our ability to provide valuable experiences for independent RIAs by digitally enhancing their touch points with Jackson,” said Dev Ganguly, senior vice president and CIO at Jackson National. “Through the launch of the new online portal, we are highlighting our commitment to a digital-first approach, including the submission of client information as well as paperless processes all serviced by a fully licensed concierge team.”

Independent RIAs who would like to learn more can visit the new digital experience at Jackson.com/ria-and-wealth-managers.html or call 800-711-7397.

Jackson National provides retirement products, including variable, fixed, and fixed index annuities for individual investors, and other products for institutional investors. The company has $295 billion in assets and is an indirect subsidiary of Prudential plc, an Asian company that is not affiliated with United States-based Prudential Financial Inc.
