  • RetireOne and Midland National Launch Constance – a New Portfolio Retirement Income Guarantee

    October 8, 2021 by RetireOne

    SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–RetireOne® and Midland National Life Insurance Company (Midland National) proudly announce the launch of a new, zero-commission contingent deferred annuity (CDA) called Constance. This stand-alone living benefit unbundles the annuity’s insurance component from its underlying investments. In doing so, Constance allows Registered Investment Advisors (RIA) flexibility to wrap client brokerage accounts, Individual Retirement Accounts (IRA), or Roth IRAs with this lifetime income protection.

    “Historically, advisors have avoided annuities because they’ve been difficult to integrate into client portfolios,” said David Stone, Founder and CEO, RetireOne. “Through this innovative retirement solution, they can now integrate guaranteed income1 using institutional-priced funds and ETFs at the custodian of their choosing.”

    Selected ETFs and mutual funds from BlackRock, Dimensional Fund Advisors, Franklin Templeton, Vanguard, and other leading managers are available within Constance as investments for potential growth in addition to protected income, and many more are slated to be vetted and approved2.

    Constance was created to resolve today’s retirement crisis in which longevity is increasing, healthcare costs are rapidly rising, and many Americans have no pension on which to rely for guaranteed income. The risk of outliving one’s retirement savings is borne solely by the retiree. Constance is designed to act as a “personal pension” to transfer that risk to an insurance company. This also empowers advisors to help their clients navigate a sequence of returns risk, return volatility risk, and longevity risk while providing guaranteed income for life.

    “Constance is a crowning achievement in the quest to protect retirement income value,” said Stone. “This is a game changer for increasing advisors’ adoption of protected retirement income solutions. Through our partnership with Midland National, Constance improves advisor and client experiences, lowers internal costs, and makes the income guarantees ‘portable’ from custodian to custodian.”

    RetireOne’s technology provides the infrastructure behind the development of Constance by consolidating data from insurance companies and custodians for ongoing servicing and administration. With Constance, advisors can help clients remain in control of their assets and tax treatment by keeping covered assets with the custodian in either qualified or non-qualified accounts. Unlike funding a traditional annuity by selling out of existing positions, advisors may simply cover client’s existing mutual fund or ETF investments with Constance without enduring the impact of a capital gain tax event.

    “By insuring part of a client’s portfolio with Constance, advisors can potentially increase their clients’ risk budgets, gain greater equity exposure, and possibly increase their spending power in retirement,” said Rob TeKolste, President, Sammons Independent Annuity Group, a division of Midland National. “Constance is a straightforward, affordable solution that advisors can use to provide lifetime income and free up clients to spend more of their money with a high degree of confidence.”

    TeKolste added this is especially important as Americans need to fund more years in retirement, and consistently say that their greatest fear is outliving their retirement savings.

    Constance is offered exclusively on the RetireOne platform. It is the latest example of RetireOne’s efforts to provide easy-to-understand, affordable retirement solutions that fee-only fiduciaries can easily implement in their practices to increase their offerings and improve client outcomes.

    “As investors prepare to enter retirement, our job as advisors is to ensure that the best possible planning and outcomes are within reach for them,” offered Kimberly Foss, CFP®, president and founder of Empyrion Wealth Management. “Thanks to RetireOne and Midland National, Constance will help us manage risks for our clients while offering peace of mind in terms of their retirement income and overall portfolio.”

    Advisors who would like to learn more about how they can begin to leverage Constance for their clients can schedule a meeting, or call their RetireOne Relationship Manager at (877) 575-2742. For additional information please visit retireone.com.
