LANSING, Mich. -- November 02, 2012

Jackson National Life Insurance Company^® (Jackson), a leading provider of
retirement solutions with assets of $129.9 billion, was named the variable
annuity (VA) firm with the strongest personal connection with advisors and
prospects, according to the Cogent Research Advisor Touchpoints™ 2012  survey
of more than 1,700 retail investment advisors across all major distribution
channels. Of the respondents surveyed, 49 percent of current Jackson users and
11 percent of prospects cited Jackson as the VA firm with which they feel the
strongest personal connection.

“We are immensely proud of the commitment our sales force has made to
connecting with advisors,” said Greg Cicotte, president of Jackson National
Life Distributors LLC (JNLD). “These results are reflective of our firm’s
dedicated focus on distribution. We believe in having both quality and
quantity, as we have one of the largest and most well-trained sales forces in
the industry, able to frequently visit advisors, talk with them and develop a
personal connection.”

According to Cogent, Jackson ranks the highest in personal connection in the
national and independent channels, and among advisors with $100 million or
more in assets. In addition, Jackson leads all VA providers in client
activity, with 65 percent of advisors saying they had received a Jackson
external wholesaler visit within the past three months, and 73 percent saying
they had received a Jackson internal wholesaler phone call within the past six
months. For both external and internal support, the survey showed Jackson
scored strongly in key support and service attributes, as well as strong
momentum among existing users.

Tom Hurley, senior vice president of Market Research for JNLD, credits
Jackson’s focus on education as one of the reasons the firm scored so high in
the survey. “We have a personal connection to those we do business with and
even those advisors we don’t yet do business with, because we focus on
bringing advisors education on trends in the industry, new products and
alternatives, and the tools to help shape their investors’ portfolios. Our
goal is a seamless flow of information and education from wholesaler to
advisor to investor.”

The Cogent Research Advisor Touchpoints™ 2012 consisted of an online survey of
1,741 registered financial advisors, conducted between March 13 - April 18,
2012. Survey participants were required to have an active book of business of
at least $5 million, and offer investment advice or planning services to
individual investors.
