Great American Life Launches New Website, Bringing New Opportunities to RIAs

Great American RIA Website Launch

CINCINNATI — June 25, 2018 — Great American Life® launched a new website to support the growing number of Registered Investment Advisors (RIAs) looking for alternative solutions to fixed income investments.

At, advisors can explore innovative tools and resources that help evaluate the impact of introducing a fee-based annuity to their clients’ portfolios. Among the site’s highlights are educational articles, tips for independent advisors, white papers and a Portfolio Simulator tool that was developed by inStream, a preeminent provider of enterprise financial planning solutions.

Using Great American Life’s Index Protector 7 fixed-indexed annuity as an asset class, the Portfolio Simulator provides a side-by-side comparison of a portfolio with and without the fee-based product. Additionally, Monte Carlo simulations illustrate a range of possible outcomes and the benefits of having downside protection, while allowing participation in market upside.

“When you consider the uptick in interest rates and recent volatility in the stock market, advisors are looking for alternative solutions, such as a fixed-indexed annuity,” said Tony Compton, Divisional Vice President of B/D and RIA Sales, Great American Insurance - Annuities.

“While annuities may have been overlooked in the past, Great American Life is proud to develop technology that makes it easier for advisors to add these valuable solutions to their clients’ portfolios.” Compton continued: “From the Portfolio Simulator to our electronic application system, the site provides a streamlined experience to support the needs of today’s RIAs.”
