Meet John Nye

John B. Nye, Jr.

As co-founder and Principal of Nye Financial Group, Inc., John Nye is a seasoned life insurance producer specializing in the needs and concerns of retirees, with over 42 years of experience in building client relationships. It is these relationships that have been the foundation of our company.

Under John’s leadership, he and his two sons, Rick and Randy, quickly developed an expertise utilizing specific tools offered by the life insurance industry.

The key speaker for many of our Florida educational seminars, John has educated thousands regarding advanced estate planning, IRA distributions, annuity maximization and wealth preservation strategies.

Along with his son, Randy, John discovered a phenomenon in the life insurance industry – pricing discrepancies in Underwritten Single Premium Immediate Annuity payouts and the cost of life insurance, which led to a financial strategy concept for which we coined the term Annuity/Life Arbitrage. The strategy made it possible for our clients to receive high levels of guaranteed lifetime income with no market risk, coupled with a wealth transfer platform that passes wealth income and estate tax-free for the client’s beneficiaries.

Mr. Nye has been invited to speak before many civic and professional groups, in addition to insurance industry conventions. He has also hosted an Advice Line program on a local radio station.
