NEWPORT BEACH, CA--(Marketwired - May 20, 2015) -  Pacific Life Insurance Company once again led the industry as the number one seller of indexed universal life insurance (IUL)1 in 2014.2 Since introducing its first IUL product in 2005, the company's sales in this category have grown by an average of 19 percent per year for the past five years.3

"To lead the industry for six years in a row4 tells us that buyers like our products and our proven track record of treating policyowners as a top priority," said David Rosuck, vice president of marketing communications 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 five indexed accounts that credit interest based in part on the performance of domestic and international indexes.5

"This year, we are celebrating a decade in the IUL marketplace," said Rosuck. "To mark this milestone, we are dedicating 2015 to IUL education to help financial professionals6 and their clients better understand how IUL policies work."
