Enhancements include fee reductions, additional investment options and simplified coverage choices
SAN FRANCISCO – May 3rd, 2023 — RetireOne®, the leading independent platform for fee-based insurance solutions, and Midland National Life Insurance Company (Midland National) today announced enhancements to the Constance contingent deferred annuity (CDA) designed to make the CDA easier to integrate into a financial advisor’s practice and more straightforward to communicate with clients.
With feedback and collaboration from registered investment advisor (RIA) firms, Midland National® and RetireOne have reduced costs and simplified the fee structure. As a result, advisor fee billing no longer impacts the cost of the certificate fee to the client. Additionally, the marketplace of investment options has been expanded to include a total of 419 mutual funds and ETFs, and 89 managed models.
Launched in 2021, Constance allows Registered Investment Advisors (RIAs) to oversee client assets while converting their investments to income in retirement with lifetime income protection that can wrap brokerage accounts, IRAs or Roth IRAs.
“This challenging market environment demands that we take action to better support our RIA partners by evolving and enhancing our retirement solutions,” said David Stone, co-founder and CEO of RetireOne. “With these improvements to Constance, RIAs can now create guaranteed 5 percent retirement income streams¹ for a client beginning at age 60 for as low as 110 basis points.”
Fees have been lowered across the board, now offering income protections starting as low as 75 basis points. Overall, certificate fees have been reduced by 25 percent and the deferral period has been removed. This means investors can begin receiving a 5 percent payout immediately for single life coverage at age 60 with the CorePlus option.
“Since launching this innovative income solution, we’ve received feedback from many RIAs,” said Cooper Sinclair, vice president of advisory distribution at Midland National. “Among the enhancements, we were able to remove separate pricing for coverage that allowed RIAs to bill their fees from the covered assets. They can now bill the assets directly without affecting client costs.”
Advisors who would like to learn more about how they can begin to leverage Constance for their clients can schedule a meeting, or call their RetireOne Relationship Manager at (877) 575-2742. For additional information, visit Retireone.com.
