Pacific Life Ranks Number One in Indexed Universal Life Insurance Sales for Q3, 2014

Company Leads Industry 22 Quarters in a Row

NEWPORT BEACH, CA--(Marketwired - Feb 4, 2015) - Pacific Life Insurance Company once again led the industry as the number one seller of indexed universal life insurance (IUL)1 for the third quarter of 2014, according to LIMRA International. The company's IUL products accounted for 17 percent of the industry's $1.3 billion in sales from January 1 to September 30, 2014.2

"At the end of 2013, we were the number one seller of IUL for the fifth year in a row,"3 said David Rosuck, vice president of marketing communications for the Life Insurance Division of Pacific Life Insurance Company. "Since we entered the IUL marketplace in 2005, industry sales in this product category have increased 762 percent."4

IUL policies provide death benefits that can help protect families and businesses from unexpected losses. With an IUL policy, you can benefit from the upside potential of positive index performance without directly participating in the equities markets. Policyowners with Pacific Life Insurance Company IUL policies can choose from up to five indexed accounts with both domestic and international indexes.

"When you decide to include an IUL policy in your financial portfolio, you need to take a look at the track record of the carrier you are considering," Rosuck explained. "In 2015, Pacific Life Insurance Company will be celebrating a decade of offering IUL policies. We are also committed to educating clients and financial professionals5 about this type of life insurance and how it can be used in long-term financial plans."
