Leading the In-Plan Income Revolution


It’s time for a change. Over the last 20 years, attempts to deliver retirement income inside a defined contribution (DC) plan have fallen short because companies have viewed the issue through a single, proprietary lens and have tried to adapt existing products. Today’s income crisis is an integrated challenge that requires an integrated new solution. Annexus Retirement Solutions is revolutionizing DC plans by taking a smarter, multidimensional approach to design and delivering true innovation that defines this emerging need for income solutions.


When you put the participant at the center of everything you do, the rest falls into place. Our design philosophy is focused on creating better participant experiences and enables us to provide stronger benefits and better outcomes, without compromising flexibility or control.


Annexus Retirement Solutions has forged strategic partnerships with the industry’s top-rated carriers, largest investment managers and leading plan administrators to align and protect best interests, leverage interdisciplinary synergies and deliver stronger value, across the board. By engaging all stakeholders up front in the process, we deliver greater efficiencies and competitive advantages for every member of the DC value chain.


Annexus Retirement Solutions is backed by Annexus, the leading independent product developer of index-based wealth management solutions. Annexus innovation has transformed the annuity industry – the company was named “Annuity Innovator of the Year” in 2017, 2018 and 2019. Annexus Retirement Solutions builds on that success in the individual retirement solutions market to deliver innovation and enhanced value in the DC plan space. Blackstone, one of the world’s leading investment firms, has made a strategic investment in Annexus to advance the companies’ shared vision of developing and distributing next-generation income solutions.
