Louisville, KY— Jefferson National, now operating as Nationwide’s advisory solutions business, adds six new funds to Monument Advisor, the industry’s first[i] and only Flat-Fee[ii] Investment-Only Variable Annuity (IOVA). A leading distributor of tax-advantaged investing solutions for Registered Investment Advisors (RIAs), fee-based advisors and the clients they serve, the company continues to offer the industry’s largest lineup of investment options,[iii] including the most alternatives such as real assets, trading assets, and liquid alternatives[iv] utilizing strategies like those favored by hedge funds and elite institutional investors.

“Research shows that taxes are a top concern for clients, and tax reform is top of mind. But with outcomes in Washington uncertain, and more turbulent markets expected, advisors should continue to focus on controlling what they can—taking a holistic approach to planning, keeping costs low, and investing for greater tax-efficiency,” said Laurence Greenberg, leader of Nationwide’s advisory solutions business. “With greater transparency, Flat-Fee pricing and the industry’s largest lineup of underlying funds, Monument Advisor is an Investment-Only VA that is tailor-made to help meet the tax-advantaged investing needs of RIAs, fee-based advisors and the clients they serve.”
