  • Study Finds 2 in 3 RIAs Would Consider Annuities if Clients Inquire

    September 2, 2020 by RetireOne

    SAN FRANCISCO and NASHVILLE, Tenn.Sept. 1, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Joint research from RetireOne® and Jackson National Life Insurance Company® (Jackson®) finds that 68% of registered investment advisors (RIAs) would consider recommending an annuity in cases where clients asked about annuities. For the remaining third who say they would not recommend an annuity, cost, lack of liquidity and complexity are the main concerns cited. These findings come as 62% of respondents anticipate the economic recovery from the coronavirus to take at least 12-18 months.

    “We are not surprised to see that RIAs are open to recommending annuities for clients who inquire about them,” said Scott Romine, President, Retirement Solutions, Jackson National Life Distributors LLC (JNLD). “While these results are encouraging, there is still an opportunity to educate a large portion of these financial professionals about next-gen annuities designed for RIAs and how they can help reduce the cost and complexity.”

    Nearly half (45%) of the financial professionals surveyed indicated that they discuss retirement income plans during initial meetings with clients. However, over 1 in 4 say they don’t begin to talk about converting defined contribution plans into retirement income until clients are within five years of retirement.

    “We uncovered a missed opportunity for a pretty big swath of RIAs with this survey,” said David Stone, RetireOne Founder and CEO. “Annuities in general, and lifetime income solutions specifically, are especially helpful for yielding some certainty in uncertain times. Financial professionals who wait until clients are within that 10-year retirement window to discuss income strategies may miss out. Utilizing lifetime income solutions at the right time can maximize opportunities to bridge the fragile decade, when their clients face one of the more serious headwinds to retirement security: sequence-of-returns risk.”

    The survey also found that nearly half of RIAs rely on solution-oriented discussions with topic experts for product selection and/or portfolio strategy, while websites (64%) and publications (59%) lead the way. Meanwhile, only 38% of respondents say they rely on “Thought Leaders” for guidance.

    101 financial professionals who identify themselves as RIA, hybrid, or dually-registered advisors responded to the survey. 3 in 5 of them anticipate a slow economic recovery from the global pandemic lasting a year or longer, while over half believe that there will be extensive structural changes in our economy when growth resumes.
