Towards a New Beginning


As I write this, the new Soleares Research web site is not yet up and running, but I figured I’d get the ball rolling with my first blog post just to test out how it feels to write one.  My intention is for the blog to be a forum where I can share my thoughts on various issues (not always related to the industry) in a thoughtful, less formal, way.

The annuity industry finds itself faced with having to change the way it is doing business, but this process is a gradual one, but also one laden with opportunity. I hope to be able to shed light on what is going on in these pages.

In closing I’ll simply say that my hope is that the new site will create a much better presence for my firm on the web, and encourage more interaction with clients and industry colleagues.
