Jackson’s sponsorship of the Financial Planning web seminar series is part of a larger effort to educate advisers on alternative asset classes and investing strategies. In March, Jackson launched Elite Access, a new variable annuity that focuses on alternatives to provide the potential for greater portfolio diversification. Jackson has also hosted more than 100 educational road shows across the country with an emphasis on alternatives training.
“It’s clear that investing strategies are evolving to help meet the demands of today’s economic conditions,” said Jack. “Traditional assets are increasingly more correlated, causing a shift toward alternatives for better diversification and potentially higher returns. Educational programs and support are becoming a critical piece of this trend and Jackson is committed to taking a lead role in these efforts.”
