POWHATAN, Va., July 31, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Envestnet | MoneyGuide, the creator of a leading financial planning software, MoneyGuidePro®, announced today a new strategic alliance with Jackson National Life Insurance Company® (Jackson®), a leading provider of annuities in the U.S., to provide a new comprehensive retirement income module to help advisors better solve the retirement income needs of their clients.
"At Envestnet MoneyGuide, we focus exclusively on developing financial planning software to more effectively motivate each client to create, implement and maintain an investment strategy that best meets his or her lifetime financial goals," said Kevin Hughes, Chief Growth Officer at Envestnet | MoneyGuide. "Early on, we worked with Jackson to enhance our annuity functionality. Their insight has enabled MoneyGuide to do a better job showing the benefits and tradeoffs a lifetime income solution can provide within a comprehensive wealth management plan."
The new partnership coincides with the launch of MoneyGuideElite, an enhanced planning product for advisors seeking to offer more sophisticated planning services. The tool enables advisors to illustrate income distribution and analyze the benefits and tradeoffs of adding an annuity with the help of the new advanced lifetime protection module.
With the added Secure Income Modeling feature, advisors now have the ability to model secure income, including lifetime income benefits. To help launch MoneyGuideElite, Jackson and Envestnet | MoneyGuide have created a new, innovative training process, leveraging Jackson's robust distribution force to roll out the new tool with advisors. The added support from Jackson includes a dedicated team of Advisory Integration Consultants to help advisors looking to leverage this tool in their practices.
"This strategic alliance allows Jackson to help advisors better solve for the retirement income needs of their clients within the industry-leading financial planning tool they are already using," said Dana Malesky, Senior Vice President, Strategic Solutions, Jackson National Life Distributors LLC (JNLD).
