Annuities Industry Becomes Rolling Stones Roadie
October 9, 2019 by Jacqueline Sergeant
Annuities didn’t quite take center stage during The Rolling Stones recent U.S. tour but, they certainly played a prominent role in more ways than one.
“We hit a nerve by talking about protective lifetime income and talking about income and retirement,” said Jean Statler, executive director of The Alliance for Lifetime Income, a Washington, DC-based nonprofit coalition of financial services companies that focuses on helping educate Americans about addressing the risk of outliving their savings.
The alliance, whose membership includes 24 financial services organizations, was the sole sponsor of the final U.S. dates of the rock band’s European/North American concert tour, which began on Sept. 9, 2017, in Hamburg, Germany.
The 17-date U.S. tour began on June 21 in Soldier Field in Chicago and ended on August 31 in Hard Rock Stadium in Miami. Alliance members went along for the ride in an effort to educate people about protective lifetime income and annuities.
