Hexure, a provider of sales and regulatory automation solutions for the life and annuity industry, announced that Protective Life Insurance Company (Protective), a subsidiary of Dai-ichi Life Holdings, Inc. (Dai-ichi, TSE:8750), has selected FireLight to support digital sales and submission processes for its new advisory variable universal life (VUL) product, Protective Investors Benefit Advisory VUL.

“FireLight has emerged as the platform of choice for OIDs (outsourced insurance desks) focused on the fee-based annuity market,” said Chad Nulty, VP of Business Development for Protective’s RIA Insurance. “As we build a new market for advisory life insurance, it made perfect sense for Protective to collaborate with Hexure for our fee-based advisory VUL offering as well.”

With their RIA distributors already using FireLight, Protective saw the value in expanding its FireLight experience to include life products. By using FireLight for both life and annuity products, the carrier is making it easy for their distributors to access and submit business using a workflow they are already familiar with. Plus, Protective can leverage its existing FireLight integration, saving time and effort when distributing new products. Using a straightforward wizard e-ticket process, financial professionals can capture the necessary data and signatures, and submit drop tickets to Protective for an expedited, simple and in-good-order sales experience.

“Protective has been a longstanding, valued client, and we are delighted to expand our business relationship, providing additional support for Protective’s digital and sales strategies as they introduce new and innovative products to the market,” said Hexure’s Chief Sales Officer, Jaci Miller. “FireLight offers clients like Protective the functionality and flexibility needed to scale alongside product innovations and meet the ever-growing need for sales and operational efficiencies, speed to market and the delivery of accelerated and enhanced digital sales experiences. We are thrilled to be a part of the solution that helps Protective get more insurance solutions in the hands of consumers faster and grow its sales.”
