  • Jackson Chooses RetireUp to Power New Advisor Tool that Demonstrates the Value of an Annuity as Part of a Retirement Portfolio

    January 16, 2019 by RetireUp

    CHICAGOJan. 15, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Retirement income planning software provider RetireUp announced today that its technology has been selected to power a new advisor tool from Jackson National Life Insurance Company® (Jackson®). The custom-built Purpose Meets Planning tool will enable financial professionals to quickly and easily assess the benefit of adding an annuity to a client’s retirement plan.

    Increased longevity and rising costs in retirement have created a growing need for the protected lifetime income solutions offered by annuities. RetireUp’s sophisticated Monte Carlo simulation will enable advisors to instantly calculate a plan’s “probability of success” to achieve a client’s retirement goals – with and without an annuity – and then compare the results to make the best choice.

    “Purpose Meets Planning is targeted to planning-focused advisors trying to visualize what retirement looks like, with or without the benefit of an annuity,” said Dev Ganguly, senior vice president and chief information officer, Jackson. “We’re excited about the opportunity to leverage RetireUp technology to help advisors simplify annuities and provide clients the best solutions and advice.”

    The collaboration follows RetireUp’s win in the recent Jackson Hothouse competition – a creative problem-solving methodology Jackson employs to encourage cross-functional teamwork, innovation and agile development. Six cross-discipline teams were challenged with developing a working software solution prototype to empower Jackson advisors, in just three days. The prototypes were scored by a panel of judges that included customers and members of Jackson’s executive leadership team. RetireUp was leveraged as part of the business solution voted best among the teams that participated in the invitation-only event.

    “It’s extremely rewarding to be recognized for our best-in-class technology,” said RetireUp President & Chief Sales Officer Michael Roth. “We’re continually seeking new opportunities to provide clients an understandable and highly personalized planning experience, and we look forward to helping Jackson and their advisors add value to the retirement income planning process.”

    The Purpose Meets Planning tool is now available on Jackson’s Digital Advisor Success Hub (DASH). To find out more about Jackson’scommitment to providing education, service support and digital tools to increase the ease of doing business, please visit www.jackson.com.
