LOUISVILLE, KY., Feb. 12, 2019 – DPL Financial Partners (“DPL”), the insurance network for registered investment advisors (“RIAs”), and Jackson National Life Insurance Company® (“Jackson®”) announced that they are teaming up to bring the carrier’s popular advisory annuity products to fee-only advisors in what represents Jackson’s first distribution partnership targeting the independent RIA channel. Three of the carrier’s commission-free products are now available to RIAs nationwide through DPL’s platform: two variable annuities – Perspective Advisory IISM and Elite Access Advisory IISM – and one fixed index annuity, MarketProtector Advisory® .
“Jackson has long been a market leader in variable annuities, and we are excited to be their partner in launching their fee-based products to the independent RIA market,” said DPL Founder and CEO David Lau. “Between Perspective Advisory II’s expansive rider options with investment freedom, Elite Access Advisory II’s tax advantages with a robust variable annuity investment platform and MarketProtector Advisory’s downside protection without a surrender charge, it’s easy to see that Jackson is at the forefront in developing commission-free annuities.”
Since its launch in 2017, Jackson’s Perspective Advisory II has been one of the leading advisory variable annuities. The product’s many rider options allow individuals to customize their choices to meet unique needs and goals, while investment freedom gives RIAs the ability to work with their clients to build a diversified portfolio that is customized to meet their clients’ individual priorities and preferences, rather than locking them into restrictive allocation models.
“Consumers want and need choices, and Jackson is committed to working with advisors to provide a spectrum of options that meet consumer preferences,” said Scott Romine, President, Advisory Solutions, Jackson National Life Distributors LLC (JNLD). “DPL has been a valued partner as we prepare to launch our commission-free products into the independent RIA market. Their RIA-centric platform will help expand Jackson’s distribution footprint and we are excited to partner with them.”

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.
Variable annuities are long-term, tax-deferred investments designed for retirement, 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.
Optional benefits are available for an extra charge in addition to the ongoing fees and expenses of the variable annuity. Only one optional living benefit and one optional death benefit may be elected per contract. Once elected, benefits may not be canceled; 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.
