CANNEX Hires Annuity Research Leader

CANNEX Financial Exchanges, an independent provider of annuity pricing and analytics to the financial services industry, welcomes Tamiko Toland as its new head of Annuity Research.

Toland will be responsible for product research on the annuity market and she will contribute to the development of CANNEX services. She brings to her role 15 years of experience as a researcher and editor focused on retirement income and annuities. Toland will provide financial institutions and annuity product manufacturers with insights into product design and trends.

Toland most recently served as managing director, Editorial and Research Operations/Retirement Income Consulting, at Strategic Insight, parent company of PLANADVISER. While there, she managed the firm’s Annuity Insight service. Her responsibilities included authoring and editing research reports about various topics including managed volatility funds and in-plan guarantees. Prior to Strategic Insight, she was managing editor at Annuity Market News, a SourceMedia publication that provided industry news about fixed and variable annuities, as well as variable life insurance.

“At a time of industry change and investor uncertainty, the perspective and analysis Tamiko will offer has never been more valuable,” says Gary Baker, president, CANNEX USA. “As we continue to expand our annuity evaluation and selection services, she will be a resource for clients and the media, as well as our development and client-facing teams.”
