Non-Variable Annuity IMO

Let our team curate the right product for the right situation for any client.

  • Our lineup of over 40 fixed and fixed indexed annuity (FIA) carriers ensures you have access to a wide array of annuity products to fit your client needs.

  • Our streamlined appointment system allows you to request new carrier appointments with a few clicks in a matter of minutes, without re-uploading compliance documents and certificates.

  • NIGO issues are annoying to any advisor and waste time. A single e-application portal supports the majority of all of our annuity products, helping you to expedite app handling and reduce NIGO issues. If you do have need to complete a paper application, we will pre-scrub the application prior to carrier submission.
  • We subscribe to avery robust annuity analysis software, allowing us to run cross-carrier analysis on a variety of goal sets, from maximizing income to back testing sub-account performance for FIA’s, and running the top rate profiles across a wide variety of guarantee periods for both Single Premium Immediate Annuities (SPIAs) and Multi-Year Guarantee Annuities (MYGAs).

  • At Royal Alliance, there are a number of different rules and pathways within the Fixed Indexed Annuity space that govern what you can sell, how you get appointed to sell it, what type of suitability review needs to be conducted, and how the application is taken. We can help you quickly and compliantly figure out what competitive products fit your client need and how to distribute them as painlessly as possible.

  • Our central annuity portal, Business Builder, allows you to track updates from the carrier as they come in on both appointment requests and case updates.

Your Annuity team is here and ready to support you!
