Ohio National introduces new ONdex Fixed Indexed Annuity

CINCINNATI – Ohio National Financial Services has launched a new fixed indexed annuity designed to help customers reach their long-term retirement goals.

The ONdex fixed indexed annuity, which joins the company’s annuities and retirement product portfolios, provides customers the opportunity to accumulate assets by earning tax-deferred interest, subject to limitations, based in part upon the performance of a pricing index.

The ONdex fixed indexed annuity can be a good fit for someone who is retired or close to retirement age because it provides growth opportunities without the risk of losing principal from market downturns. It may be a good option for customers looking for a fixed income alternative.

“It is a strong addition to our annuity line of business, offering additional product breadth for accumulation and retirement planning, and is ideal for those with a conservative risk tolerance,” said Michael J. DeWeirdt, CFA, FRM, Ohio National’s senior vice president, annuities strategic business.

Highlights of the new ONdex fixed indexed annuity include:

  • Participation in market appreciation
  • Two versions for clients with different retirement time horizons and liquidity needs
  • A contractual minimum interest rate guarantee that ensures the contract’s value never decreases as a result of losses an index may experience
  • The choice of three quality indices
