  • DPL Financial Partners Rolls out New Allianz Life RILA for Advisors

    November 2, 2021 by DPL Financial Partners

    LOUISVILLE, Ky.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–DPL Financial Partners (“DPL”), the leading turnkey insurance platform for registered investment advisors (“RIAs”), today announced the launch of a unique, commission-free registered index linked annuity (RILA) that combines various levels of protection against market risk during accumulation with guaranteed income options for investors. Currently, Allianz Index Advantage Income ADV℠ Variable Annuity is the only RILA in the advisory market with a guaranteed lifetime withdrawal benefit.

    The Allianz Index Advantage Income ADV℠ Variable Annuity, from Allianz Life Insurance Company of North America (Allianz Life), is available now on DPL’s platform for registered investment advisors. Investors in the annuity product and its associated Income Benefit rider1 can select from an array of crediting methods (also called index strategies) with varying levels of protection against market downturns; and income features that offer a flat payout or one that offers the opportunity for increases over time, thereby potentially addressing the impact of inflation. The product enables advisors to bill directly from the annuity rather than needing to pull their fee from a separate account.

    “This product is a timely addition to the DPL platform because it addresses two investor concerns we’re hearing a lot about today,” said DPL Founder & CEO David Lau. “One, the desire to participate in market gains while mitigating some of the risk in the portfolio, and two, concern about the potential impact of inflation on their retirement income. Allianz asked our members what is important to them in a RILA product; they’ll appreciate the downside customization options, the rising income feature, and the ability to bill their fee.”

    Investor demand for RILAs has been strong, with flows up 104% year over year in the first half of 2021 according to LIMRA.

    “As part of our broad product innovation process, we spoke with DPL members to gather direct input on product design, fee-billing needs and integration requirements,” said Heather Kelly, senior vice president of Advisory and Strategic Accounts at Allianz Life. “Given market conditions and the ongoing need to help protect against the many risks that come with retirement, we believe this product delivers tremendous consumer value, all while meeting the unique needs of the RIA business model.”
