  • Press Release New Index. New Opportunity. Pacific Life Introduces Pacific Index Edge

    September 8, 2016 by MarketWired

    NEWPORT BEACH, CA–(Marketwired – September 07, 2016) – Pacific Life Insurance Company has launched Pacific Index Edge, a new deferred, fixed indexed annuity that is the first to utilize the BlackRock Endura Index-a new volatility-controlled index from a global leader in risk-management services.

    “Pacific Index Edge brings together a new index from BlackRock, and a new opportunity for principal protection and market-based growth from Pacific Life,” says Christine Tucker, vice president of marketing for Pacific Life’s Retirement Solutions Division. “With four simple but diverse Interest-Crediting Options to choose from, clients have opportunities for growth potential in various market environments.”

    For clients who prefer growth based on multiple asset classes and controlled volatility, Pacific Life is the first in the industry to offer an option using the new BlackRock Endura Index. Composed of U.S. equities that seek to have lower volatility compared to the broader U.S. equity market, this index uses short-term U.S. Treasury bonds to help lessen downside risk. The index also seeks to minimize portfolio volatility to help deliver steady long-term growth. Hilary Corman, managing director at BlackRock, commented, “We are excited that Pacific Life is the first to launch a fixed indexed annuity with our BlackRock Endura Index. The launch of this index demonstrates BlackRock’s commitment to innovation and working with clients to help solve their investment challenges.”

    To complement the Interest-Crediting Option based on the BlackRock Endura Index, Pacific Index Edge also offers two options based on the S&P 500® index that can provide growth potential in certain market environments. There is also a Fixed Account Option that can provide a predictable, guaranteed interest rate.

    Pacific Index Edge is available with a choice of one of two optional benefits, available for an additional cost, depending on client goals. For lifetime income, there is the new Interest Enhanced Income Benefit, an optional guaranteed minimum withdrawal benefit. For clients who would like to leave a financial legacy to loved ones, there is Interest Enhanced Death Benefit, an optional death benefit.

    “With the addition of Pacific Index Edge, Pacific Life now has a selection of fixed indexed annuities for a variety of client scenarios,” says Tucker. “This product is specifically designed to enhance the growth potential on the front end, and when paired with one of the optional benefits, a lifetime income or an enhanced death benefit for beneficiaries on the back end.”

    For more information about Pacific Index Edge and the optional benefits it offers, visit www.PacificLife.com. Financial professionals are also invited to call a Pacific Life consultative wholesaler at (800) 722-2333.

    (1) The BlackRock iBLD Endura VC 5.5 ER Index is referred to as the BlackRock Endura Index for ease of reference.
