ConnectHUB allows product solutions to be rapidly and seamlessly integrated and provides advisers and their clients with a complete view of their portfolio. Advisers will be able to purchase annuities for their clients as they would any other investment on HUB24.

The teams at Challenger and HUB24 are now working together to build the solution.

“We’re delighted to be working with the team at Challenger who are well-known for providing market-leading retirement solutions to deliver their products to our rapidly growing client base.”

“This relationship further demonstrates superannuation industry leaders moving to meet the needs of retirees as lifetime income stream products become a mainstream option in retirement.”
