The FIA Plus™ provides traditional accumulation benefits plus unique client options
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo., May 1, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Ibexis Life & Annuity Insurance Company (“Ibexis”) today announced the launch of its FIA Plus™ fixed indexed annuity in the independent marketing organization (“IMO”) sales channel.
The FIA Plus™ is a fixed index annuity unlike any other. It offers crediting strategies linked to two unique proprietary indexes from Bank of America and HSBC, the S&P 500® and a fixed account. At its core, the FIA Plus™ is an accumulation focused fixed indexed annuity. However, it also offers additional floor options that provide higher accumulation potential.
“As clients seek growth opportunities combined with safety of principle in volatile markets, Ibexis is pleased to offer the FIA Plus™. The product aims to combine the traditional protection of a fixed annuity with innovative client optionality to pursue increased accumulation potential,” said Nate Gemmiti, CEO & President of Ibexis.
Ryan Lex, Chief Distribution Officer at Ibexis, added: “With the FIA Plus™ a client has the ability to control their level of risk. Clients have the flexibility to annually allocate their money into a traditional 0% floor strategy for a competitive participation rate or expose prior gains to more risk in exchange for increased upside potential. Regardless of the client’s choice, they will have access to exclusive indices developed by Bank of America and HSBC.”
FIA Plus™ will be offered through the following Independent Marketing Organizations: Ash Brokerage, Creative One, DMI, Financial Independence Group (FIG), Gradient, Insurance Agency Marketing Services (IAMS), Magellan Financial, M&O Marketing, and TruChoice.
With insurance licenses in 43 states and the District of Columbia, Ibexis has been assigned a Financial Strength Rating of A- (Excellent) and a Long-Term Issuer Credit Rating of “A-” (Excellent) by AM Best. Both ratings have a “stable” outlook.
