Provides financial advisors access to selection of Pacific Life's protection and retirement products

Pacific Life Insurance, a provider of life insurance products, annuities, mutual funds and investment products and services, has signed a distribution agreement with the financial services firm, Edward Jones.

Under this agreement, financial advisors will have access to a selection of the company’s protection and retirement products, which include Pacific Select Exec IV1, Versa Flex NLG1, and a new A-Share variable annuity that is anticipated to be available in January 2010.

Merry Mosbacher, principal, Insurance Marketing at Edward Jones, said: “Insurance is an essential need that must be addressed in order for many clients to achieve their long-term investment goals. Obtaining adequate insurance is often an overlooked step in planning for the future, however, insurance is as important to the success of a portfolio as the underlying investments. We are pleased to add attractive product options with the introduction of Pacific Life.”

Dewey Bushaw, executive vice president of annuities and mutual funds division at Pacific Life, said: “We are thrilled with the opportunity to provide Edward Jones clients quality products that can meet their financial needs. Pacific Life’s disciplined financial management style, award-winning customer service, and product choices will provide clients with new opportunities to help grow and protect their retirement savings while ensuring a lifetime income.”
