Boston - John Hancock Annuities was named a service leader by Dalbar in its recently announced 2011 Financial Intermediary Service Awards. Dalbar honored John Hancock Annuities as a leading firm in the post-sale award category among financial intermediary firms, based on testing of advisor calls.
“Winning Dalbar’s Service Award is a reflection of our focus and dedication to the highest standards of quality service,” said John Hatch, Vice President, John Hancock Annuity & Fixed Product Operations. “We have always prided ourselves on providing superior service to our advisors and clients. This award is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our employees and management team.”
Dalbar’s Financial Intermediary Service Award is based on systematic testing of service throughout the year. Dalbar conducts thousands of tests to measure how financial companies respond to the need for service from financial professionals. Companies that exceed a variety of industry benchmarks after one year of testing earn the Financial Intermediary Service Award.
"Financial Professionals have many options when it comes to helping their clients make the right investment choices. Recognizing this, our award-winning firms make servicing them an institutional priority," said Kathleen Whalen, Managing Director at Dalbar.
With offices in both the US and Canada, Dalbar develops standards for, and provides research, ratings, and rankings of intangible factors to the mutual fund, broker/dealer, life insurance, property and casualty, and managed account industries. Measurements include investor behavior, customer satisfaction, service quality, communications, Internet services, and financial professional ratings.
