Symetra Joins Hueler’s Income Solutions® Platform

BELLEVUE, Wash.—Symetra Life Insurance Company today announced it is partnering with Hueler Investment Services, Inc. to offer a Symetra single premium immediate annuity (SPIA) and deferred income annuity (DIA) on the Hueler Income Solutions® platform.
 
The Income Solutions® platform is a fully automated, competitive Annuity Marketplace? created specifically for “transitioning investors.” These investors include both active employees and retirees who have reached a point in their lives where they want or need to convert a portion of their retirement savings into a reliable income stream.
 
The Income Solutions® platform includes deferred income annuities, which allow individuals to remove certain risks from their retirement plan by guaranteeing a future stream of lifetime income that is not subject to market volatility. The platform added these annuities in 2013 in response to a significant demand in the marketplace for products that meet the needs of individuals looking to secure income starting at a future date.
 
“Symetra is pleased to partner with Hueler and join the Income Solutions® platform, offering both a SPIA and DIA option,” said Dan Guilbert, executive vice president of Symetra’s Retirement Division. “We believe there is a real growth opportunity in providing retirement income alternatives on an institutional basis. As baby boomers retire and seek to turn their retirement savings into lifetime income, Symetra, through the Income Solutions® platform, can offer our income annuity solutions that allow individuals to create a steady stream of income that is guaranteed for life.”
 
“Hueler is very excited to include Symetra as a participating provider on the Income Solutions® platform as we continue to enhance our unique model for lifetime income delivery,” said Kelli Hueler, founder and CEO Hueler Companies.
