  • Saybrus Partners Launches Plan Right Partners

    February 23, 2011 by Alice Ericson

    Select firms to offer clients “Plan Right, Retire Right” planning program

    HARTFORD, Conn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Saybrus Partners, Inc., a subsidiary of The Phoenix Companies, Inc. (NYSE: PNX), today announced that it has formed the Plan Right Partners group of distribution firms that will have exclusive access to Phoenix’s “Plan Right, Retire Right” program. The firms also will be exclusive distributors of the Phoenix Reflections and Phoenix Reflections Gold Series of single-premium indexed annuities, in addition to other products offered by Phoenix and other financial services companies.

    “We are excited to work with the Plan Right Partner firms as they help their clients sort through many of the considerations and options for a secure retirement”

    “We are excited to work with the Plan Right Partner firms as they help their clients sort through many of the considerations and options for a secure retirement,” said Edward W. Cassidy, managing principal of Saybrus Partners and Phoenix’s executive vice president of distribution.

    Initially, there are eight Plan Right Partner firms located across the U.S., and several more could join in 2011.

    Phoenix’s Plan Right, Retire Right program includes formats for both group seminars and individual discussions between financial advisors and their clients. Both help explain key considerations when preparing a retirement income plan and how various funding vehicles, including annuities, can fit into that plan. Risks and realities such as longevity, inflation and market volatility are covered, followed by a review of income sources for essential and discretionary expenses and the product vehicles that could be used to plan for each.

    “Retirement planning is never a ‘one size fits all’ proposition, and finding the right solution for an individual requires a methodical look at each unique situation. Even the definition of ‘essential’ versus ‘discretionary’ expenses is going to vary from person to person, so it is important to direct retirement assets to a product that will provide dependable income and adequate financial resources when they are needed,” said Mark S. Fitzgerald, National Sales Manager for Saybrus Partners, who developed the Plan Right, Retire Right program.

    “Many annuities in the marketplace today provide the features and flexibility that can meet a range of retirement income needs, and Plan Right, Retire Right can help consumers identify what is best for them,” Fitzgerald said.

    In addition to the retirement planning program, Plan Right Partner firms will have access to a broad portfolio of Phoenix products and exclusive distribution for Phoenix’s Reflections and Reflections Gold suites of single premium indexed annuities. They offer:

    • An up-front premium bonus option of 5% with Reflections and 10% with Reflections Gold
    • Five indexed accounts, including Domestic and Global Lookback selections that give greater weight to better-performing indices in the calculation of index credits
    • Optional Guaranteed Minimum Withdrawal Benefit (GMWB) riders with designs for immediate or longer-term income time horizons
    • Seven annuity payment options
    • Guaranteed death benefit

    To learn more about Plan Right Partners and annuity products available from Phoenix, agents and financial advisors can contact the Sales Desk at Saybrus Partners at 888-794-4447, or visit www.phoenixwm.com.
