Prudential Annuities launches Prudential Premier Investment


Prudential Annuities has launched Prudential Premier Investment Variable Annuities, which aims to combine tax deferral with investment flexibility.

Designed to help investors address the increasing tax pressures on their investments, Prudential Premier Investment offers tax-deferred asset growth potential and tax-free transfers between the portfolios.
“An estimated 77 per cent of Americans will have paid more taxes in 2013 than they did in the previous tax year,” says Bruce Ferris, president of Prudential Annuities Distributors. “Prudential Premier Investment fills a market need by helping investors more efficiently manage their taxes and grow their wealth.”
In addition to tax-deferred asset growth potential, Prudential Premier Investment offers investors the opportunity to create a strategy to help save for the future, better navigate dynamic market cycles, and provide for beneficiaries. Key features include:
• Tax advantages through the power of tax-deferred growth potential and tax-free transfers between portfolios.
• Maximum investment flexibility to mix and match using three unconstrained investing approaches: managed, guided and customised.
• Exclusive investments from leading brand name and boutique managers.
• Legacy protection with an optional Return of Purchase Payments Death Benefit, available for an additional fee.
• Lower cost and complexity as compared to traditional VAs with optional living benefits.
• Innovative “pro growth” fee structure charged partially on premiums.
• Product flexibility offering B share and fully liquid C share classes.
“In today’s market environment, strong demand, concern over rising taxes, and innovation have fuelled industry growth and enhanced the sustainability of the industry's solutions,” says Ferris. “Prudential Premier Investment represents our latest innovation, and is another example of the range of solutions we are offering Americans seeking retirement income certainty.”
Prudential Premier Investment offers investors the opportunity to build a fully customised portfolio by providing access to a broad choice of unique, carefully selected investment options from brand-name and boutique managers. The line-up includes individual investment options, as well as custom-built asset allocation portfolios. Clients have access to traditional equity and fixed income options, domestic and global strategies and alternative assets, which provide additional diversification.
“Prudential Annuities’ investment discipline and approach have become a hallmark of our business,” says Timothy Cronin, chief investment officer for Prudential Annuities. “We have earned a reputation for our careful selection of managers and wide array of portfolios spanning multiple strategies, styles and sectors—balanced with access to more than 100 investment professionals who develop and monitor our exclusive investment platform. Today’s launch reinforces our unwavering commitment to choice, flexibility and oversight.”
