‘Crazy’ evolution of life, annuity indexes draws scrutiny, says expert
In a July 1 article, expert Sheryl Moore was featured as she raised the warning flag on insurance companies pushing boundaries with proprietary indexes.
As the CEO of Moore Market Intelligence and Wink Inc., Moore has been on the front line for decades as the industry transitioned from bad-mouthing indexed products to developing evermore complex indexes. When she started Wink 17 years ago, only a dozen indexes were available. Now there are more than 150.
Moore’s concerns were that the indexes are not only confusing for consumers, but are also likely to attract regulatory and legislative attention.
