  • Pacific Life Introduces New Funds Designed to Address Today’s Consumer Needs

    May 4, 2021 by Pacific Life

    NEWPORT BEACH, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Pacific Life today announced two new portfolios to diversify its variable annuity investment lineup designed to meet today’s consumer needs: PLFA ESG Diversified Portfolio and JPMorgan Hedged Equity Portfolio. Both are available to consumers who purchase certain variable annuities from Pacific Life and are eligible for investment with an optional living benefit.

    Managed by Pacific Life Fund Advisors (PLFA), the PLFA ESG Diversified Portfolio is designed for clients who want to make a positive impact on the world by investing in companies focused on ESG (environmental, social, and governance) issues such as climate change, human rights, and employee diversity.

    “Investors across all demographics want to drive positive change for the broader world,” said Max Gokhman, head of asset allocation at PLFA. “However, they are not willing to sacrifice returns, take on additional risk, or pay a premium to do so. We’re excited to launch a turnkey ESG solution that elegantly addresses investors’ financial and sustainability objectives. The PLFA ESG Diversified Portfolio is pushing the industry forward by creating the first rider-eligible ESG multi-asset product, the first open architecture fund-of-ESG-funds, and the first ESG product to combine active and passive management that will welcome clients to the paradigm of Inspired Investing.”

    For investors looking to participate in upward-trending markets and protect against declines, the JPMorgan Hedged Equity Portfolio provides a clearer picture of what they can expect on a quarterly basis, giving investors the confidence to stay invested long-term. Managed by the same experienced team that oversees the retail Morningstar Silver Analyst-rated mutual fund, this portfolio is designed to deliver approximately half the volatility of the S&P 500® index, with a risk profile similar to a portfolio of 60 percent stocks, 40 percent bonds.1

    “Regardless of the environment, investors demand a flexible experience when it comes to managing risk,” says Hamilton Reiner, portfolio manager and Head of U.S. Equity Derivatives at J.P. Morgan Asset Management. “We expect strong demand for JPMorgan Hedged Equity Portfolio and are pleased Pacific Life clients will have access to the strategy. Investors are seeking solutions designed for capital appreciation, and a hedged investment experience allows clients to get invested and stay invested no matter the state of the market.”

    For more information about the PLFA ESG Diversified Portfolio or JPMorgan Hedged Equity Portfolio, financial professionals are invited to contact a Pacific Life consultative wholesaler at (800) 722-2333 or visit Annuities.PacificLife.com.
