Pacific Life Ranked #1 in Overall Indexed Universal Life Sales for Third Quarter 2017

Pacific Discovery Xelerator Named Top Selling IUL Product for All Channels Combined


ALISO VIEJO, Calif.  – Dec. 12, 2017 – Pacific Life Insurance Company today announced it was the top-ranked indexed universal life insurance performer for the third quarter, led by its top-selling indexed universal life (IUL)1 product, Pacific Discovery Xelerator.

According to Wink's Sales & Market Report for the third quarter 2017, Pacific Life came out on top of 102 indexed and fixed universal life and whole life insurance providers. The company’s IUL sales increased 42 percent from the same period a year ago.

"The success of the Pacific Discovery Xelerator IUL points to our long history of providing policyholders with flexible, premium options for their retirement and family needs," said David Rosuck, vice president of marketing for the Life Insurance Division of Pacific Life Insurance Company.

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 seven indexed accounts that credit interest, based in part, on the performance of domestic and international indexes.2
