Hartford, CT, March 20, 2018 – Nassau Re today announced it has added a single-premium multi-year guarantee annuity (MYGA) to its insurance offerings, Nassau MYAnnuitySM (5X, 7X). It is the first new insurance product offering from Phoenix since its acquisition in 2016, and it launches a renewed emphasis on innovative products focused on strong consumer value and choice through Nassau Re’s insurance segment. Nassau MYAnnuity is available through independent marketing organizations (IMOs).
“In partnership with our IMOs, we are excited to launch our first new annuity since the closing of the Phoenix acquisition, and our first product under the Nassau Re brand,” said Phil Gass, chief executive officer of Nassau Re. “Over the last two years, we have invested significantly in our infrastructure and technology to enhance our existing products and make doing business easier for our distribution partners. Adding MYGAs to our product portfolio is a first step to expand and diversify our product offerings.”
“With the launch of Nassau MYAnnuity, we are pleased to offer a market-leading guaranteed interest rate up to 3.5%,” said Tom Buckingham, chief product and service officer for Nassau Re’s insurance segment. “Nassau MYAnnuity is an attractive product for individuals looking for higher guaranteed interest rates and safety of principal as they plan for retirement.”

Nassau MYAnnuity is available with either a 5-year or 7-year duration, and customers can make a single premium payment ranging from $15,000 to $1 million.
