Jackson to offer advisory variable and fixed index annuities through RetireOne platform
San Francisco, Calif. – Sept. 4, 2019 – RetireOne®, the leading independent platform for fee-based insurance solutions, and Jackson National Life Insurance Company® (“Jackson®”) announced a new strategic alliance to bring the carrier’s popular advisory annuity products to fee-only advisors through the independent Registered Investment Advisor (“RIA”) channel. Three of the carrier’s fee-based products are now available through RetireOne’s platform: two variable annuities – Perspective Advisory IISM and Elite Access Advisory IISM – and one fixed index annuity (“FIA”), MarketProtector Advisory®.
“We’re pleased to bring Jackson’s powerful suite of advisory products to our audience of RIAs,” said RetireOne Founder and CEO David Stone. “Not only are they built for the way fee-only fiduciaries do business, these annuities offer tremendous consumer value with the low cost of their flat-fee investment-only variable annuity Elite Acccess Advisory II, flexibility of their surrender-free Marketprotector Advisory FIA, and investment freedom afforded by Perspective Advisory II.”
The flexible rider options with Jackson’s Perspective Advisory II, which launched in 2017, allow RIAs the investment freedom to build diversified portfolios aimed at meeting unique income needs and goals without locking investors into restrictive allocation models.
“Jackson is committed to helping advisors and the clients they serve build reliable lifetime income streams and mitigate risk by protecting principal through FIAs, as they prepare for their financial futures,” said Scott Romine, President, Advisory Solutions, Jackson National Life Distributors LLC (JNLD). “We are excited to work with RetireOne as we expand our availability of fee-based products into the independent RIA market and provide advisors with a broader spectrum of valuable options designed to meet their clients’ diverse retirement income needs.”
Jackson’s operations team will support RetireOne’s advisors and their clients with world class service.1 This team of experts will serve as a powerful compliment to RetireOne’s Advisor Solutions Team as they work to add value to independent RIAs’ business models.

Before investing, investors should carefully consider the investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses of the variable annuity and its underlying investment options. The current contract prospectus and underlying fund prospectuses, which are contained in the same document, provide this and other important information. Please contact your representative or the Company to obtain the prospectuses. Please read the prospectuses carefully before investing or sending money.
Annuities are long-term, tax-deferred vehicles designed for retirement. Variable annuities involve investment risks and may lose value. Earnings are taxable as ordinary income when distributed and may be subject to a 10% additional tax if withdrawn before age 59½.
The latest income date allowed is age 95, which is the required age to annuitize or take a lump sum. Please see the prospectus for important information regarding the annuitization of a contract.
In certain states, we reserve the right to refuse any subsequent premium payments.
Add-on benefits are available for an extra charge in addition to the ongoing fees and expenses of the variable annuity. Only one add-on living benefit and one add-on death benefit may be elected per contract. Once elected, benefits may not be canceled or changed; please see prospectus for specific benefit availability. The long-term advantage of the optional benefits will vary with the terms of the benefit option, the investment performance of the Variable Investment Options selected, and the length of time the annuity is owned. As a result, in some circumstances the cost of an option may exceed the actual benefit paid under that option.

This product is a fixed annuity that does not participate in any stock or equity investments and has limitations and restrictions, including market value adjustment. During the Indexed Option Period, the annuity’s cash withdrawal value may be less than the initial premium. Additional premium is permitted in the first contract year.

Subsequent Premiums will remain in a Fixed Account Option until the first Indexed Option Anniversary. No Premium Payments will be accepted after the first Contract Anniversary.
The design of this annuity contract emphasizes the protection of credited interest rather than the maximization of interest rate crediting.
