Market Link Pro Advisory II

From Jackson

Jackson Market Link Pro Advisory II helps clients pursue growth opportunities while protecting investments from market downturns.

The Market1

Registered Index-Linked Annuities (RILA, also known as Structured Variable Annuities or Buffer Annuities) were first introduced by AXA (now Equitable) in 2010, and are now offered by multiple carriers. In 2020, RILA sales increased 38% ($4.8B) between Q1 and Q2, more than any other annuity product type. Concerns about equity market volatility may be one of the key factors contributing to this significant increase in buffer annuity sales.

Why DPL Likes Market Link Pro Advisory II

Jackson Market Link Pro Advisory II provides diverse choices and options that enable advisors to provide growth, protection, and flexibility:

Growth - Advisors can help clients choose from one or more indices, including S&P 500, Russell 2000, MSCI Emerging Markets, MSCI KLD 400 Social, and MSCI EAFE.

Protection - Both buffer (first loss) and floor (tail risk) options are available to protect investments against market downturns, both large and small.

Flexibility - Market Link Pro Advisory II offers a one-year, three-year, and six-year term, and cap and performance trigger rates to help tailor the solution to your clients' specific needs.

How to Think About Commission-Free RILAs

Registered Index Linked Annuities fall in the middle of variable annuities and fixed indexed annuities in terms of risk tolerance. Investors may utilize RILAs for equity allocations to capture upside while reducing portfolio risk, as these products often provide cushion against major market losses.

When your client needs: 

PRINCIPAL PROTECTION: Registered index linked annuities are typically used for clients nearing retirement. They offer a level of protection against sequence of returns risk, while also providing the potential for higher returns due to higher cap rates than other structured insurance vehicles.

EQUITY ALLOCATION: Registered index linked annuities can be utilized to provide a level of protection to an overall portfolio while still providing market-linked performance opportunity.

GUARANTEED LIFETIME INCOME: Some RILAs can be used to generate guaranteed lifetime income through a living benefit, offering competitive payout rates and the potential to increase income in retirement.2
