TD Ameritrade announced Wednesday it will introduce access to a full range of competitively priced annuities in an effort to help independent registered investment advisors meet increasing client demand for retirement income solutions.

The annuities include tax-deferred products that offer optional lifetime income and inflation protection and access to 100% third-party annuity products provided by highly rated insurance carriers. They also provide access to a non-commissioned team of licensed annuity specialists who can help find solutions designed to meet the needs of an RIA's client.

"By offering access to 100% third-party annuity products, TD Ameritrade Institutional continues its commitment to bring low cost investment alternatives to RIAs and their clients," said Matt Judge, Ameritrade's director of wealth management.
