Lincoln Financial Group today introduced several new investment options for its variable annuity product lines. The new options expand Lincoln’s investment choices for advisors who prefer to work with clients in constructing a customized portfolio.
The new investment options, which seek to reduce exposure to market risks, include seven new options for Lincoln ChoicePlus Assurance products and four new options for American Legacy products.
The new options for ChoicePlus Assurance invest in underlying funds that are managed by BlackRock, Dimensional, Fidelity, MFS and SSgA.
The new American Legacy funds now allow advisors and their clients to build their own portfolios with Lincoln’s primary living benefit riders. These selections can be combined with a fixed income option, in accordance with Lincoln’s investment guidelines, to create a diversified portfolio.
The ChoicePlus Assurance and American Legacy risk-managed fund lineups are made up of asset allocation options, as well as individual asset class options, including large, mid and small-cap funds, as well as domestic and international market exposure.
The new funds are available to Lincoln’s national network of distribution partners.
