AuguStar was recognized for its innovative approach to its newly launched brand.

As a part of the Constellation Insurance family, the company entered the market with enthusiasm, introducing a distinctive brand that set it apart from its competitors. “Before launching our brand, we looked at the marketplace and found virtually everyone looked the same,” says Cliff Jack, AuguStar Retirement president and CEO. “Our difference is apparent starting with our new client-facing website and brand image. Combined with our competitive, innovative, and approachable product design matched with friendly, exceptional service, it results in a unique experience.”

AuguStar further built upon its suite of life insurance which includes a highly competitive indexed universal life insurance product and an inventive indexed whole life policy, venturing beyond traditional distribution into the life insurance brokerage space. The company's commitment to growth is evident in the recent launch of these products on new technology platforms, simplifying accessibility for financial professionals to present them to their clients.

Propelled by the success of its competitive fixed indexed and multi-year guaranteed annuities, AuguStar is set to promote a diverse range of annuity products across all distribution channels in the next several quarters. It offers a comprehensive approach to sales enablement and strategic agreements with mid- to large-tier selling partners including independent advisors, IMOs, banks and broker-dealers.
