 In News, Press Release

The First DOL Solution to Include Fixed Indexed Annuities

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Dec. 05, 2016 – Annexus Ventures, a venture capital firm
focused on making investments in InsureTech and FinTech companies, today revealed the vision behind
their recent strategic investments in RetireUp and RepPro, and plan to bring the new RetireUp Pro solution
to market by end of first quarter 2017.

RetireUp Pro will couple these technologies into an integrated end-to-end retirement planning solution with
an overarching compliance workflow–resulting in the only turnkey, end-to-end DOL platform that includes
fixed indexed annuities. This new solution will help financial professionals have more productive
conversations with clients and enable financial institutions to comply with new DOL regulations, while
reducing administrative, sales and operational burdens.

“Our mission is to bring technology to the forefront of the planning conversation while seamlessly managing
compliance requirements in the background,” said Jim Richards, Annexus Ventures Managing Partner.
“Soon, advisors will have a streamlined tool designed to simplify the retirement income conversation with
their clients, find solutions to meet their objectives and use an electronic process to effortlessly deliver
compliance and suitability.”

“A primary goal for us has always been to help move the entire industry forward,” said Don Dady, Board
Director at Annexus Ventures. “We believe an end-to-end DOL solution can help the entire supply chain–
Clients, Financial Professionals, Broker Dealers, Financial Institutions and Insurance Carriers.”

RetireUp Pro will be available to financial professionals through their Independent Marketing Organization
(IMO), Financial Institution or Broker Dealer by the end of first quarter 2017.
