  • Pacific Life Becomes First Carrier to Offer a Fixed Indexed Annuity at TD Ameritrade

    October 2, 2019 by Pacific Life

    NEWPORT BEACH, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Pacific Life announced today that Pacific Index Foundation®, a deferred fixed indexed annuity, is now available to TD Ameritrade clients.

    TD Ameritrade has offered a curated lineup of fixed annuities and fee-based variable annuities to clients since 2012, and now Pacific Index Foundation becomes the first fixed indexed annuity to be offered on the platform. Clients of TD Ameritrade can purchase a Pacific Index Foundation annuity directly from TD Ameritrade’s annuity specialists.

    Pacific Index Foundation provides safety of principal in the same way a traditional fixed annuity does and combines this safety with growth potential linked to market-based indexes. Clients will never lose principal due to market performance as this product is not a security, and their money is not directly invested in the market. Plus, any interest gained because of positive index performance are added to the contract value and protected from any future market downturns.

    “As retirement gets closer, many clients become increasingly concerned about the possibility of losing principal if the market declines. This is why fixed indexed annuities are so popular today. They offer growth potential based on the positive performance of a market index, yet the client is not actually invested in the market. As a result, the client’s principal is secure. Among fixed indexed annuity products, Pacific Index Foundation may be a good choice because its rates and caps do not change throughout the entire length of the initial guaranteed period. Plus, the guaranteed period is longer than a typical fixed indexed annuity provides,” said Brian T. Woolfolk, FSA, MAAA, senior vice president of sales and chief marketing officer for Pacific Life’s Retirement Solutions Division.

    “It is rare to find a fixed indexed annuity that locks in rates and caps throughout the entire initial guaranteed period, and we believe our clients respond positively to this transparency and straightforward approach,” said Matt Sadowsky, director of retirement and annuities at TD Ameritrade. “There are fewer variables, and that means greater stability and predictability for our clients.”

    Pacific Index Foundation also offers a choice of two optional benefits for an additional cost: one for guaranteed lifetime income and the other for enhancing the financial legacy that clients leave to beneficiaries.

    Woolfolk continued, “Pacific Index Foundation can be an appealing choice for retirement savers who are conservative, remember the market downturns of a few years ago, and want a bit more growth potential than other options might provide.”

    TD Ameritrade and Pacific Life are separate, unaffiliated firms that are not responsible for each other’s services or policies. Annuities are provided to TD Ameritrade clients through The Insurance Agency of TD Ameritrade, LLC.
