DES MOINES, Iowa, Nov. 27, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- F&G Annuities & Life is honored to be named "Deal of the Year" for the Barclays Trailblazer Sectors 5 Index at the Structured Retail Products (SRP) Indexed Insurance annual conference. Barclays launched the index in March 2017, and F&G now offers it on four of its best-selling fixed indexed annuities and two indexed-universal life products.
Providing competitive interest crediting strategies that help their customers build retirement savings is at the heart of what F&G does. F&G partnered with Barclays to deliver the Trailblazer Sectors 5 exclusively to F&G's distribution and policyholders, making this index the first proprietary alternative index option on an F&G product.
The Barclays Trailblazer Sectors 5 Index seeks to deliver a packaged allocation based on decades of research. This landmark product offering is truly a testament to the extensive expertise at Barclays, and highlights F&G's close collaboration with the Barclays team.
Award candidates underwent a comprehensive survey and the winner determined by an independent panel of judges organized and chaired by SRP. The survey evaluated product size, performance and client satisfaction. The "Deal of the Year" recognized the top Carrier for indexed annuities.
"At F&G, collaboration is core to our success. Receiving the honor as the 'Deal of the Year' with our partners at Barclays exemplifies our approach to creating value for our distribution and the clients they serve. We would like to thank SRP for the honor of receiving this prestigious award," said Ron Barrett, F&G Vice President, Annuity Distribution.
