Symetra Life Insurance Company announced today that its Daily Value Fixed Account (Daily Value) feature for retirement plans is now available on the CPI Qualified Plan Consultants, Inc., retirement program platform. CPI, one of the benefits industry’s largest third-party administrators, provides services to more than 3,700 retirement plan clients and their financial advisors.

The Symetra Daily Value Fixed Account is an unallocated group annuity created for 403(b)/457 plans and other qualified retirement programs such as 401(k)s. Daily Value is specifically designed to complement the broker-dealer platform of funds by offering a fixed rate of return account that is daily valued, similar to a mutual fund.

“We created the Daily Value feature to merge the safety and stability of a fixed annuity with the convenience many broker-dealers associate with mutual funds. Our new CPI relationship makes it even easier for broker-dealers to expand their platform of funds,” said Scott Bartholomaus, executive vice president of 403(b)/457 Distribution at Symetra. “Symetra is committed to the 403(b)/457 marketplace, and we’re delighted that our partnership with CPI offers our distribution partners and plan sponsors expanded opportunities to serve the retirement-planning needs of educators and employees of nonprofit organizations.”

“We strive to preserve plan design flexibility for plan sponsors and their financial advisers,” said Jon Prescott, CPI’s chief marketing officer. “The addition of the Symetra Daily Value Fixed Account furthers that goal, as well as provides greater depth and choice within our platform. There are only a few fixed account options that are available to the 403(b) and 457 market, so this is an exciting addition.”
