CHICAGO, Jan. 8, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Envestnet, Inc. (NYSE: ENV) has announced that O.N. Investment Management Co.

The Envestnet Insurance Exchange provides end-to-end management of annuity solutions, from pre- to post-issuance. ONIMCO's advisors can seamlessly plan, research, generate proposals, open policies, manage in-force transactions, and create client reports within the Envestnet platform. ONIMCO's home office team will also benefit from the Insurance Exchange, with licensing and appointment checks as well as integrated compliance tools that monitor in-force transactions and adherence to client investment policies.
"We are ready to empower our client partners with access to high-quality annuity solutions found on our Insurance Exchange, and we are grateful that ONIMCO has decided to join us on our journey to help create better outcomes for clients," said John Yackel, Head of Strategic Initiatives at Envestnet.
