Understanding Different Retirement Strategies
Fixed indexed annuities (FIAs) address many basic retirement concerns:
protection of hard-earned dollars, tax-deferred growth, balance, and lifetime income. Consider these key benefits:
Diversification of Assets
A balanced retirement strategy is essential for managing risk and reward in the financial markets. Designed for the long term, fixed indexed annuities (FIAs) are a great retirement vehicle to ensure you are not putting all your eggs in one basket. FIAs offer the ability to grow your assets without the risk of losing your assets.
Is an FIA all I need?
In short, no.
The benefits of fixed indexed annuities (FIAs) can help balance risk and reward in your overall portfolio, which may already include retirement accounts and other investments.
The best retirement income strategy ensures balance by bucketing money in a variety of vehicles, as each has unique benefits.
Working with Owens Financial Group to review your options, as well as the impact of those selections on your savings and retirement income potential, can prove to be invaluable for your financial goals.
Principal is Protected
Even with market volatility, you will not lose value on your fixed index annuity. Your savings aren’t exposed to market fluctuations, so even in a negative market return, interest credited will never fall below zero.
Also, you can never lose your interest once it’s credited to your principal.
Guaranteed Income Stream
With Americans living longer and spending more time in retirement, many retirees are concerned about outliving their savings. In turn, they are searching for a product that can help ensure a steady income stream. Some fixed indexed annuities (FIAs) are designed with guaranteed lifetime income, so you can never outlive your earnings.
Annuity guarantees rely on the financial strength and claims-paying ability of the issuing insurer and are not guaranteed by any bank or the FDIC. Ask your insurance licensed professional about the rating of any issuing insurer (ie insurance company) that you are considering.
