I don't know. I believe that is Sheryl Moore's website who is pretty active in our business.
Your best option is to find a case to quote and then get some free trials and reach out to a few IMOs to see what they come with...
Selling annuities is a lot more than just selling a product. Proper placement, client objectives, taxes, suitability, renewal rates, etc. all come into play.
Frankly, they are mainly commodities. Yes, some products are inferior to others in a given category but if all of the other pieces (mentioned above) fit then there isn't a lot of difference from one carrier to the next (assuming top tier companies).
That's just me though...I'm sure that others might disagree.
