Motif's institutional investment advisor, Motif Capital, and Global Atlantic Financial Group's investment adviser subsidiary, Global Atlantic Investment Advisors, announced that Global Atlantic Investment Advisors has selected Motif Capital to sub-advise three new insurance trust mutual funds for variable annuities.

The funds will be offered through variable annuity products, blending tax-deferral with thematic portfolios built and sub-advised by Motif Capital.

"Motif Capital is a leader in thematic investing. Our ability to offer these funds to our variable annuity clients gives them an attractive new allocation alternative while further differentiating Global Atlantic in the marketplace," said Rob Arena, President, Global Atlantic Retirement and Life.

"Motif sees this as a key relationship and is excited to be working with Global Atlantic," said Hardeep Walia, CEO of Motif. "Applying Motif Capital’s unique investment approach to variable annuities furthers our mission to make sophisticated investments more intuitive."

These new funds are expected to be available through Global Atlantic’s variable annuity platform beginning in the third quarter this year.

Global Atlantic Financial Group, through its subsidiaries, offers a broad range of retirement, life and reinsurance products designed to help our customers address financial challenges with confidence. A variety of options help Americans customize a strategy to fulfill their protection, accumulation, income, wealth transfer and end-of-life needs.

Global Atlantic Investment Advisors, a subsidiary of Global Atlantic, is the investment manager of propriety funds within Global Atlantic variable annuities.
