“With this growth capital, FIDx will be able to bring our platform and services to new markets and distribution channels while also helping to simplify the sale and management of annuities for industry participants,” said Rich Romano, CEO of FIDx.

“It will let us meet the needs of larger distribution companies that sell billions of dollars worth of annuities every year and want FIDx to be their annuity operating engine.”

Addressable Market

LIMRA Annuity Research says that the annuity industry is on track to set a new record with sales of nearly $300 billion in 2022.

However, many financial professionals still think that adding annuities to their clients’ portfolios is too hard. The FIDx technology platform speeds up the process by getting rid of the problems caused by old technology and systems that don’t talk to each other.

The importance of streamlining annuity sales was recognized by Prudential and Global Atlantic, and FIDx’s integrated platform was recognized as a pioneering solution.

Why it matters?

Dylan Tyson, president of Prudential Retirement Strategies, said, “If we want more people to have a safe retirement, the industry needs to keep changing and find new ways to offer safe investment and income strategies to more wealth managers and customers.”

“The FIDx platform solves a key part of the problem and embodies the innovative spirit that the industry needs.”

Paula Nelson, Global Atlantic’s Head of Strategic Growth, Individual Markets, says that the current annuity industry model doesn’t let financial professionals easily access and manage annuities as a whole on modern wealth management platforms in the context of their overall client portfolios.

“Today’s client purchasing expectations are very different than they were 20 or even 10 years ago, and our industry has a lot of ground to make up,” Nelson said. “FIDx is bridging that gap by enabling all carriers to place products on a platform that connects directly to financial professionals where and how they prefer to do business.”

Investors’ opinion

Envestnet was one of the first investors in FIDx, and it thinks that the FIDx platform gives financial advisors and their clients a lot of benefits. enefits.Envestnet’s Insurance Exchange is powered by FIDx technology, which works with MoneyGuide, Tamarac, and Envestnet’s other leading wealth management solutions.

“We’ve kept putting money into growing our financial wellness ecosystem,” said Bill Crager, CEO of Envestnet. “Income and protection are important parts of the future of financial advice.”

“Allowing financial professionals to compare annuities with managed accounts and other investments gives them the tools they need to help their clients achieve a connected, intelligent financial life.”
