“Recognizing that the number of moving parts and policyowner decision points can make the purchase of an IUL product daunting, we’ve introduced Accumulator IUL with an emphasis on a simple story: index options that are focused and specifically designed to help meet client needs while our underlying policy charges are transparent and easy to understand,” said Dan Guilbert, executive vice president, Symetra Individual Life and Retirement Divisions. “Symetra Accumulator IUL features a straightforward but compelling dual strategy. It’s an accumulation-focused IUL product offering inherent and optional features that can help clients achieve both their protection and retirement goals.”
