Berger Funds has developed a concerted push into the variable annuity and variable life sub-advisory market, adding two carriers to its list of clients in December. Within the last year, the Denver-based firm has increased its visibility, becoming a regular exhibitor at National Association for Variable Annuity conferences.

"We have been out in the annuity marketplace for the last five or six years, but we've focused more on it in the last 12 to 18 months and done such things as taken a higher profile at the NAVA conferences," said Dave Mertens, senior VP of institutional marketing and sales.
