If you don’t follow us on Facebook, you may have missed the excitement here at Shurwest when the entire annuity team flew to New York for Annexus training from January 11-13, 2017. Here are some visual memories we’ve added to Shurwest’s historic timeline.
Ron Shurts and Don Dady, founders of Annexus, stand in front of the New York Stock Exchange on January 12th:
The team from Annexus, along with Roger Ibbotson, stand on the NYSE podium above the trading floor ringing the closing bell. (Roger G. Ibbotson is chairman and CIO of Zebra Capital Management, LLC, an equity investment and hedge fund manager.) This historic moment marks the launch of the first NYSE index to be licensed to an insurance company.
You can watch video of Zebra Capital Management, Annexus and UBS ringing the NYSE closing bell here:
