  • Pacific Life Links Commission-Free Annuities to Orion Platform

    July 29, 2020 by Pacific Life Insurance Company

    NEWPORT BEACH, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–To provide registered investment advisers (RIAs) with the best possible experience in helping clients achieve better retirement outcomes, Pacific Life today announced the integration of its commission-free variable annuity and fixed indexed annuity with the Orion Advisor Solutions platform. Orion is a premier provider of the tech-enabled fiduciary process that transforms the advisor-client relationship by enabling financial advisors to prospect, plan, invest, and achieve within a single, connected, technology-driven experience.

    “RIAs work with Pacific Life due to our financial strength and quality retirement investment products. Additionally, they also require a seamless portfolio-management experience,” said Doug Mantelli, vice president of RIA strategy at Pacific Life. “To customize portfolios for their individual clients, financial advisors must use a wide range of investments. Utilizing Orion to see a real-time view of Pacific Life’s advisory annuities alongside their clients’ other investments is a game changer. The information they need is at their fingertips.”

    The Orion integration will allow financial advisors to easily monitor and bill on their clients’ tax-advantaged retirement-income solutions. In addition, RIAs can manage a client’s entire portfolio of both taxable and tax- advantaged assets within a single advisor workstation. This feature makes it possible to construct a diversified and holistic retirement strategy.

    “Integrating our platform with Pacific Life aligns well with our commitment to helping our advisors connect individual client goals with investment performance, thereby boosting transparency within the relationship. Through this integration, advisors can introduce Pacific Life’s annuity products as part of a coordinated investment strategy, helping clients to see how those products fit into their overall financial picture,” added Randy Lambert, chief operations officer at Orion Advisor Solutions. “We’re excited to not only help advisors showcase the value of Pacific Life’s retirement products for their clients, but also to empower them with another tool for strengthening their relationships.”

    Pacific Life is demonstrating its commitment to the RIA space by adding a dedicated RIA channel team. The group is focused on creating competitive, fee-based annuities and providing unparalleled service. Technology integrations for ease-of-use are a priority, and the company continues to add new custodians and insurance licensing companies to make it as simple as possible for financial advisors to include critical guaranteed income in their clients’ portfolios.
