Global Atlantic Launches Global Accumulator Indexed Universal Life Policy

Des Moines, IA – April 23, 2020 — Global Atlantic Financial Group, a leading U.S.-focused retirement, life insurance and reinsurance company, recently launched  its newest indexed universal life policy, Global Accumulator IUL.

Issued by Accordia Life and Annuity Company, a subsidiary of Global Atlantic, Global Accumulator is an accumulation-focused IUL product that offers a variety of indexed strategies, including two SMART Buy-Up Add-On options: SMART Buy-Up Secure and SMART Buy-Up Performance. It also offers a fixed term strategy.

“Global Accumulator is designed for individuals looking for greater accumulation potential, while maintaining flexibility and downside protection,” said Dave Wilken, President, Life, at Global Atlantic. 

Buy-Ups, or “multipliers”, are designed to enhance the accumulation potential of the policy, for an additional charge. Unlike other multiplier products in the market, Global Atlantic’s SMART design helps protect the policy's ability to withstand charges related to Buy-Up strategies, while also being able to take advantage of their upside potential.  SMART Buy-Up Secure provides a 25% Add-On to any indexed interest credit received, and SMART Buy-Up Performance provides a 100% Add-On. 

Global Accumulator also includes other popular features from previous product releases. These features include the Linked Loan interest rate option, which provides the potential to earn loan interest linked to index performance, and the Wellness for Life® rider, which gives cost of insurance discounts for insureds who visit the doctor at least once every other year and manage their weight within a range determined at policy issue.

Wellness for Life® Rider not available in all states.

Global Accumulator is issued by and all policy benefits are the responsibility of Accordia Life and Annuity Company, 215 10th Street, Des Moines, Iowa and not that of any other insurer or company. Policy form ICC19-IULF-A20, IULF-A20. Endorsement form ICC19-IULBU2PTP-A20, IULBU2PTP-A20. Rider form ULWF-E14
