Lincoln is one of six product providers working with Thinc on its Working in Partnership programme designed to help advisers adapt their advice models and understand new product innovation in the retirement market.
Thinc has also added Lincoln’s i2Live annuity and drawdown products to its at-retirement product range. Lincoln i2Live was launched last year and includes the i2Live accumulator in its product range.
Thinc Group training and development director Richard Stokes says: “We are delighted to offer Lincoln’s innovative proposition to our customers. We believe it is important that we present our clients with all possible options to help them plan for retirement and that our advisers are well educated on these products.
“The appointment of Lincoln i2Live to our panel, as well as the training programme Lincoln is assisting us with, will ensure we achieve this.”
Lincoln Financial Group head of products and marketing Simon O’ Connor says: “Our appointment to Thinc’s at-retirement panel recognises the need for clients to cons- ider alternative options for their income in retirement.”
