SIMON Annuities and Insurance Services LLC (“SIMON”) is pleased to introduce Allianz Life Insurance Company of North America (“Allianz Life”)—a leading provider of annuities in the U.S.—to its annuities platform and digital marketplace for Raymond James wealth managers.

Expanding SIMON’s Marketplace with the onboarding of Allianz Life delivers not only a broader selection of annuities products to Raymond James advisors on SIMON’s platform, but also the depth of analytics they seek to effectively serve the wealth management and retirement needs of their clients.

Raymond James advisors can now seamlessly find and explore Allianz Life’s annuity products and features, run powerful allocation and income analytics within these products, and access product-specific marketing literature—all from directly within SIMON’s interactive platform.Fintech News
