Gainbridge® Signs College Basketball Star Caitlin Clark as Brand Ambassador

Gainbridge®, a Group 1001 company, announced today a multi-year partnership with Iowa women’s basketball star Caitlin Clark to serve as brand ambassador for the company. The company also announced a new product now available on the Gainbridge® platform, ParityFlex™, a multi-year guaranteed annuity product created for women, by women.

Clark is joining the Gainbridge® roster of athletes, which includes 39-time Grand Slam Champion Billie Jean King and 72-time LPGA Tour winner Annika Sörenstam, to promote ParityFlex™ and other products available on the Gainbridge® platform.

“I am honored to be part of the company’s deepening commitment to advancing opportunities for women, on and off the court, like this visionary new product for women,’’ said Clark. “Women of all ages need to think about their long-term financial goals. The ParityFlex™ product is designed to allow women to begin building their financial future now.”

“We are thrilled to partner with a generational talent like Caitlin Clark,’’ said Group 1001 President and CEO Dan Towriss. “We look forward to having Caitlin join Billie Jean and Annika to represent Gainbridge® as this new product for women is launched and now available on the Gainbridge® platform.”

Clark, who became the all-time leading scorer in college basketball history on Sunday, is one of the most decorated collegiate basketball players in men’s and women’s history and entered this season with the Iowa Hawkeyes as the preseason Big Ten Player of the Year and unanimous AP preseason All-American honors. After leading her team to the 2023 NCAA Women’s National Championship game, Clark earned the Naismith trophy – the most prestigious individual honor in women’s college basketball – in addition to the Wooden Award National Player of the Year, the Wade Trophy, and the Honda Sport Award for Women’s Basketball and was a 2023 Academic All-American.

“It’s an honor to have Caitlin join us on Team Gainbridge®,” said Billie Jean King. “She is an amazing talent on the court, but more importantly, she puts her team ahead of herself and is a leader, an agent of change, and a champion on and off the court. Thanks to Gainbridge® for once again stepping up and showing their commitment to being a leader in women’s sports.”

To kick off Women’s History Month, Clark’s signature will be included on the No. 26 Gainbridge® Honda driven by Colton Herta on INDYCAR and the No. 77 Group 1001 Camaro driven by Corey Lajoie on NASCAR. Both races are on March 10.

The innovative ParityFlex™ product, available now at, combines a multi-year guaranteed annuity (MYGA) with a guaranteed lifetime withdrawal benefit for no additional cost. The only direct-to-consumer offering of its kind, ParityFlex™ is designed to address women’s unique retirement needs – the security of fixed growth, a measure of liquidity for changing life circumstances, and a guaranteed stream of lifetime income. Customers will be able to choose when to activate guaranteed income at any time after the first year, which will provide a certain amount of income for the rest of their lives, even if their account balance falls to zero.*
