Luma Financial Technologies Partners with RetireOne to Enhance RIA Access and Transparency in Annuity Solutions

SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 16, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Luma Financial Technologies (“Luma”), an award-winning global independent alternative investment platform, announced today their partnership with RetireOne┬«, the leading independent platform for fee-based insurance solutions. Luma’s innovative platform will now integrate RetireOne’s fiduciary marketplace of commission-free annuity and insurance solutions, providing non-insurance licensed Registered Investment Advisors (RIAs) with a smooth and convenient experience in managing annuity offerings for their clients.

The partnership between Luma and RetireOne prioritizes RIAs, combining Luma’s pioneering annuity product evaluation tools with accessibility to an array of the best in-class advisory solutions RetireOne offers. Luma’s fully customizable platform is equipped with abundant resources, allowing RIAs and fee-based advisors the ability to confidently offer clients access to suitable annuity solutions as part of their wholistic portfolios.

“We are thrilled to be increasing annuity access on our platform to non-insurance licensed RIAs and fee-based advisors seeking insurance solutions to their clients,” said Brady Beals, Director of Investment Solutions at Luma Financial Technologies. “There continues to be strong RIA demand for annuities and it is our mission to continue increasing availability and transparency of these products so financial professionals are best equipped to serve their clients’ insurance solution needs.”

As the annuity sector continues to grow, RIAs and fee-based advisors have an opportunity to reassess their own strategies and cater their approaches to better serve clients’ evolving needs. In partnership with RetireOne Luma’s seamless platform sets a new technology standard and provides a strong foundation for RIAs, now including non-insurance licensed RIAs, in providing access to first-class financial solutions and advice.
