2016 Winner: Metlife

MetLife is the winner of the Insurance Technology category.

Company: Metlife 
Category: Insurance Technology 
Initiative: Interactive Income Tool 

Illustrating the benefits of insurance products through “What if…” scenarios can help clients make informed decisions. Metlife’s new interactive income planner enables this kind of decision making by creating customized income case studies in minutes.  

The tool allows clients and financial advisors to create a visual representation of how a variable annuity with a living benefit rider could fit into an overall retirement portfolio. Available on both desktop and tablet devices, the Interactive Income Tool allows users to toggle back and forth between different market scenarios and withdrawal optionsseeing real-time changes based on those adjustments.   

The tool has received excellent feedback from the field. Advisors note that it’s helpful as both point-of-sale tool, and as a way to engage prospective clients in detailed product illustrations that might otherwise take too much time to conduct.
