Advisers on the RetireOne Platform Can Now Choose Advisory Annuities from Pacific Life 

NEWPORT BEACH and SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (Sept. 23, 2020)—Pacific Life announced today that it has expanded access to the company’s two fee-based annuities, Pacific Odyssey® and Pacific Index Advisory®, through RetireOne®—the insurance and annuity back office for more than 900 RIAs. 

“We’re excited that our commission-free advisory strategies are now available to RIAs and fee-based advisers who partner with RetireOne,” said Doug Mantelli, vice president of RIA Strategy at Pacific Life. “RetireOne is built on a foundation of transparency, trust, and seamless service, so our values synch up nicely. We couldn’t be happier to be on this platform.” 

As an insurance and annuity back office for nearly 1,000 RIAs, RetireOne’s team of licensed professionals work with advisers to seamlessly integrate protected accumulation and lifetime income solutions into client portfolios. They collaborate with advisors to identify potential client needs, and locate transparent, low-cost, commission-free solutions that are easy to explain and simple to use. 

“Pacific Life was an important target for our platform,” said RetireOne founder and CEO David Stone. “They have proven their commitment to registered investment advisers with their thoughtful, fee-friendly product design, and the build-out of their dedicated advisory team. They are also walking the walk with their robust adviser technology data integrations.” 

Pacific Life’s dedicated RIA channel team, Pacific Life Advisory, is focused on creating competitive, fee-based annuities and providing unparalleled service. Simplified technology integrations are a priority, and the company continues to team up with new custodians and insurance licensing firms to make it as easy as possible for advisers to include these critical investments in clients’ portfolios.
