Measuring and mitigating risks to retirement spending
SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–RetireOne, the leading independent platform for fee-based insurance solutions, today announced a partnership with Fabric to integrate its risk modeling capability into RetireOne’s user platform, beginning with its zero-commission contingent deferred annuity, ConstanceSM.
Developed in partnership with Midland National® Life Insurance Company and offered exclusively on the RetireOne platform, Constance is a form of portfolio income insurance that unbundles the annuity’s insurance component from its underlying investments, giving Registered Investment Advisors (RIAs) the flexibility to wrap client brokerage accounts, Individual Retirement Accounts (IRA), or Roth IRAs with lifetime income protection. With access to a free version of Fabric’s risk management tool, advisors can analyze the annuity’s role in a client’s portfolio through the lens of long-term risk.
“As the length of retirement increases and clients’ fears of outliving their savings grow, annuities offer individual investors peace of mind through guaranteed income. Through our factor-based model, Fabric helps advisors communicate to their clients where a specific annuity fits into the bigger risk picture of their portfolio,” said Fabric’s Co-Founder and CEO Govinda Quish.
“Constance was created to address the retirement crisis and give advisors an easier way to adopt protected retirement income solutions,” said David Stone, RetireOne’s Founder and CEO. “Fabric’s tool takes the platform to the next level by providing advisors with simple and straightforward insights into the risk component of an annuity.”
An Advisor Perspectives CE webinar, “Measuring and Mitigating Risks to Retirement Spending” on Wednesday, May 18 will feature this new Fabric tool. Sponsored by RetireOne, presenters for the event will include David Stone, and Rick Bookstaber and Govinda Quish of Fabric. Register now!
