Pacific Life's Variable Annuity Lineup Now Includes More Than 100 Investment Options

NEWPORT BEACH, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 13, 2015) - Pacific Life announces the addition of 13 new investment options to its variable annuity products to provide an even broader array of portfolio diversification and strategic opportunities for investors. This brings the company's total number of available investment options to more than 100.

American Funds®, Oppenheimer, First Trust, Neuberger Berman, and ClearBridge are among the well-known investment managers for the latest offerings, which were strategically chosen to complement and expand on Pacific Life's already broad investment option choices. The new additions provide opportunities in 10 distinct Morningstar Categories, including Intermediate-Term, High-Yield, and World bonds; Large Value, Large Growth, World, and Foreign Large-Growth stocks; Multialternative; and both World Allocation and Tactical Allocation options.

"At Pacific Life, we're committed to variable annuities that provide clients with investments they know, retirement income they need, and family protection they want," says Christine Tucker, vice president of marketing for Pacific Life's Retirement Solutions Division. "The addition of these new investment options aligns with those goals by opening up new opportunities to satisfy the individual needs and preferences of multiple investors, and all the new options are professionally managed by firms their advisors know and trust."
