Athene USA Launches New and Redesigned Annuity Suite of Products

West Des Moines, IA

April 11, 2016

Athene USA, a leading provider of products in the retirement savings market, today announced the launch of an ambitious initiative, centered around a dynamic suite of both new and enhanced products focused on helping customers achieve their financial goals.

Athene Performance Elite®, already one of the industry's leading accumulation-focused fixed indexed annuities, has been enhanced with the addition of two new volatility controlled indices offered with highly competitive crediting strategies. The new indices include a global multi-asset index sponsored by BNP Paribas, and a dividend-focused equity index sponsored by Morningstar®.

The new indices will also be available in newly-redesigned versions of the Athene AscentSM Pro indexed annuities. These income-focused products offer a versatile optional income rider (available for a charge) that delivers multiple highly competitive income solutions, including industry-leading guaranteed income.

Rounding out the robust product line-up is Athene MYG®, a multi-year guarantee fixed annuity offering multiple durations and highly competitive rates.

"Our new and redesigned annuity suite of products represents a transformative opportunity for our company," said Chris Grady, EVP and Head of Retail Sales for Athene. "Adding these new solutions significantly enhances our ability to meet the evolving needs of our distribution partners, their producers and their clients."

"These initiatives broaden Athene's appeal across the entire retirement planning spectrum," added Rod Mims, Athene's SVP and National Sales Manager. "Accordingly, we have also expanded our sales team to work with our valued partners across the independent, bank, and broker dealer distribution channels."
