Luma Financial Technologies Joins Forces with Financial Independence Group to Maximize Efficiency in the Annuity Marketplace

Cincinnati, OH, December 6, 2023 – Luma Financial Technologies (“Luma”), the award-winning independent multi-issuer structured products and annuities platform, and Financial Independence Group, LLC (“FIG”), a leading financial services conglomerate specializing in annuities, long-term care, and life insurance products, announced today a collaboration to provide tools and make researching and purchasing annuities more streamlined.

“We are thrilled to partner with FIG to provide customized technology solutions for their agents and clients,” said Tim Bonacci, Chief Executive Officer at Luma Financial Technologies. “We developed the Luma platform to efficiently provide tools, differentiated capabilities, and support to advisors as they service their end clients. Our commitment to transparency, objectivity, and integrity aligns well with FIG’s, helping to simplify the processes of learning, transacting, and managing annuities.”

Luma’s open architecture technology platform emerged in 2018 to serve the structured product market, and extended into the annuity industry in February 2021. Luma has since developed additional tools for the platform, including Luma’s “Lifecyle Manager” which simplifies the process of managing in-force annuity contracts.

“We are excited to incorporate Luma’s state-of-the-art platform into our network and offer clients the most cutting-edge technology available to deliver the best-in-class solutions to end users,” said Jim Cooper, Co-Chief Executive Officer at Financial Independence Group. “As our organization continues to evolve and expand within the market, it is essential to ensure that we are delivering the best client experience. Luma offers significant value in the annuity industry, and we look forward to working with them.”
