  • AllianceBernstein Adds Jackson to its Lifetime Income Strategy Multi-Insurer Platform

    November 9, 2021 by AllianceBerstein

    NASHVILLE, Tenn.Nov. 8, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — AllianceBernstein L.P. (“AB”) (NYSE: AB) announced it has added Jackson National Life Insurance Company® (Jackson®), the main operating subsidiary of Jackson Financial Inc. (NYSE: JXN), to its platform of insurers that provides guaranteed income in its Lifetime Income Strategy (LIS) retirement solution for Defined Contribution (DC) plans.

    As more plans are adopting LIS and assets are growing, AB has selected Jackson, a leading provider of annuities, as its fifth insurer to back AB’s in-plan, guaranteed income solution[1].

    “AB is committed to delivering effective and flexible lifetime income solutions to meet the evolving needs of both plan sponsors and participants,” said AB’s Head of Defined Contribution Jennifer DeLong. “We’re delighted to announce the addition of Jackson to our multi-insurer platform and are looking forward to partnering with Jackson to provide Americans with financial security and income certainty in retirement.”

    Designed to serve as a qualified default investment alternative, LIS combines AB’s world-class research in glide path design with a flexible guaranteed income option to offer plan participants control of their account, full access to their money and guaranteed income in retirement. LIS has been available to the DC market as the first-of-its-kind retirement income solution since 2012 and currently has more than $6 billion in strategy assets, including $2.1 billion in secured income.

    AB has seen a significant increase in interest in LIS due, in part, to the SECURE Act of 2019 which provides a safe harbor to plan sponsors to include annuities in their plans. To assist them with this process, AB provides an ERISA 3(38) fiduciary service for the selection and monitoring of the insurance providers within LIS.

    AB’s multi-insurer design is an important feature that adds value for participants and plan fiduciaries by producing more competitive withdrawal rates and diversifying risk, with a platform that has sustainability for many decades.  

    “We’re excited to partner with AB to help ensure more hard-working Americans have access to reliable retirement income as they plan for their financial futures,” said Tim Munsie, Senior Vice President, Product Strategy and Development, Jackson National Life Distributors LLC. “As the burden of saving for retirement has shifted to individuals with the transition away from pensions, we will continue to find innovative ways to help workers generate a consistent, steady stream of lifetime income.”

    The other insurers on the LIS platform are Equitable, Lincoln National Life Insurance Company, Nationwide Life Insurance Company, and Prudential Retirement Insurance and Annuity Company.
