Fixed Index Annuities - guaranteed future income

With a fixed index annuity, you can put that money to work for you by selecting one or more “strategies”, creating a guaranteed stream of income that will add more certainty to your retirement plan.

What are fixed and Fixed index annunities

With a fixed annuity, the insurance company guarantees both your rate of return and/or guaranteed lifetime income option. Not only is your investment protected, but the insurance company will also pay a specified rate of interest on that investment during the time that your earnings are growing. A fixed index annuity shares similar features with fixed annuities; however, with an indexed annuity, the annual growth is bench-marked to a stock market index (e.g., Nasdaq, NYSE, S&P 500) rather than an interest rate. With this type annuity, your investment will grow at either the guaranteed minimum rate of return, or the return from the specified stock market index, whichever is greater.Your investment will never drop below your principal and your new annual investment will be locked in. As shown in the chart below, this new annual investment value will be your new account value.

FIXED INDEX  annuities are a secure, reliable source of sustainable, lifetime income. Unlike other investment products that are vulnerable to market fluctuations and other risks (including variable annuities).

PROFESSIONAL MONEY MANAGEMENT - HEDGE INFLATION AND GROW ASSETS

Determining if managed money is a good option for anyone reading this, without more information, is impossible. For many reasons, we feel that professional managed money is becoming more popular in place of brokerage accounts where commissions are paid on each transaction. Some advantages of a managed money account are:

  • Potentially lower fees compared to brokerage transactions or variable annuity alternatives
  • better alignment of advisor-client interests through an asset based fee, rather than commission per transaction
  • Allows professional investing autonomy not bogged by transaction costs
  • Lower up front fees vs. many brokerage account share class commission rates
  • Professional money management
  • Provides hedge against inflation
  • Many investment choices, flexibility and investment options

A good advisor will consider the qualitative factors, such as: risk tolerance, goals, investment experience, investment horizon and the quantitative factors, such as: assets, liabilities, income and expenses. All of this will be determined during the financial review and will help determine the need for professional money management.

Unlike brokerage accounts where commissions are charged on every transaction, managed money accounts charge a flat percentage of assets based fee (normally 1-3%, closer to 1.4-2.25%). Managed money accounts are setup as wrap accounts, meaning investments are “wrapped” inside this one account and charged a quarterly or annual asset under management fee on all assets.

We live in what’s been coined a New Normal global economy, where the relatively high “buy & hold” investment returns are expected to be lower in the years to come. Therefore, there’s a need for solid money managers like us, with the ability to trade as little or as much as necessary, around a tailored investment objective without generating unnecessary commissions.
