Allianz Retire+ Future Safe launches on HUB24
Allianz Retire+ has announced the integration of its flagship retirement solution, Future Safe to HUB24.
With Future Safe, Allianz Retire+ gives financial advisers access to an Australian market-first solution, designed to safeguard retiree portfolios against equity market volatility and sequencing risk.
Advisers who use HUB24 can now access Future Safe reporting and speciality retirement tools and resources through the adviser desktop. Clients can also view their Future Safe investments alongside other investments on the HUB24 platform, creating reporting efficiencies which support the advice process.
Commenting on the launch, Allianz Retire+ CEO, Matt Rady said: “This inclusion on the HUB24 platform signals a pivotal step in our distribution channel expansion. We are delighted that HUB24 recognised the growing demand for Future Safe, and we thank them for their commitment to becoming our first strategic platform partner.”
HUB24 Managing Director, Andrew Alcock commented: “It’s critical that advisers and their clients have access to product solutions that can help them prepare for retirement. We are pleased to be working with Allianz Retire+ to provide advisers who use HUB24 and their clients access to greater product choice to help them achieve their retirement goals. “
Rady added: “We are keenly focused on expanding our reach to ensure advisers have efficient access to solutions that deliver better outcomes for their clients. It’s exciting to have Future Safe integrated with a market-leading platform that enables the provision of retirement solutions, and importantly, eases the delivery of quality advice.”
Allianz Retire+ Future Safe offers advisers the ability to confidently provide retirees exposure to growth, with the ability to protect the equity allocation from losses. Investors in Future Safe can choose an appropriate level of downside protection, via a cap and floor strategy. If the linked sharemarket falls, the investment won’t fall below the “floor” selected for that given year. By limiting investment losses to a “floor”, investors are provided exposure to equity returns up to a corresponding “cap”.
