NEWPORT BEACH, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 7, 2015) - Pacific Life Insurance Company, the number one seller of indexed universal life insurance (IUL)1, recently launched a new resource for financial professionals2 interested in learning more about IUL. The site offers explanatory videos, engaging infographics, calculators, and other educational information.

Industry sales of IUL have grown 762% over the past 10 years.3 IUL policies provide death benefits that can help protect families and businesses from unexpected losses due to death. Policy owners can also benefit from the upside potential of positive index performance without directly participating in the equities markets.4

"The combination of upside potential and downside protection is attractive to buyers," said David Rosuck, vice president of marketing communications for the Life Insurance Division of Pacific Life Insurance Company. "We want to support financial professionals in understanding the benefits of IUL and how to help their clients manage these types of policies."

Pacific Life Insurance Company has been the number one seller of IUL every year since 2009.5 The company introduced its first IUL product in 2005.

Pacific Life refers to Pacific Life Insurance Company and its affiliates, including Pacific Life & Annuity Company. Insurance products are issued by Pacific Life Insurance Company in all states except New York and in New York by Pacific Life & Annuity Company. Product availability and features may vary by state. Each insurance company is solely responsible for the financial obligations accruing under the products it issues. Insurance products and their guarantees, including optional benefits and any crediting rates, are backed by the financial strength and claims-paying ability of the issuing insurance company.
