CINCINNATI — February 13, 2018 — Great American Life® announced a partnership with Quovo to integrate data for its fee-based annuity with the industry-leading account aggregation service.
Hundreds of investment advisory firms and thousands of advisors use Quovo to connect account data from over 14,000 financial institutions to gain a holistic view of their clients’ financial portfolios. This partnership enables advisors to access product details and in-depth strategy values for Great American Life’s suite of fixed-indexed annuities, including the Index Protector 7 – the #1 selling fee-based fixed-indexed annuity.
The Index Protector 7 offers benefits that might be missing from an investment portfolio, such as principal protection, tax-deferred growth and lifetime income options.
