Growth Potential + Safety + Tax Advantages - Limited Upside

Growth Potential + Safety + Tax Advantages – Limited Upside

Fixed indexed annuities (FIA)

Space missions are a balance of shooting for the stars while being safe and secure on the way. This is similar to the goal of a fixed indexed annuity, which balances growth potential with downside protection, or safety.

A fixed indexed annuity
is a good fit for people who are:

  • At or nearing retirement

  • Concerned about market losses or volatility

  • Looking for a growth opportunity for the savings they can’t afford to lose

Simply put:

Fixed indexed annuities are designed to help grow your money by earning returns that are based upon the performance of certain market indices.

A fixed index annuity isn’t invested directly in the market, so your investment will never decrease as a result of any losses an index may experience.

Key benefits of a FIA

Growth potential

Your growth is based, in part, on the growth of stock market indices. It may experience accumulation rates higher than CDs and other fixed investment opportunities when markets are performing well. 


Protect against market losses and volatility by locking in gains every year, and never have the risk of losing money if the market takes a turn. 

Tax advantages

Just like a retirement savings plan, such as a 401(k) or IRA, there are no taxes on any gains until they’re withdrawn from the contract. This allows any growth to compound more quickly.

One more thing...

Upside potential and downside protection sounds too good to be true. 
And while that’s exactly what these products provide, it’s important to understand that your growth potential is limited compared to other investments that have more upside, but also greater risk.
