Sometimes it is important to go back and review the basics. I thought to refer you to this week’s article because I think it does a good job of highlighting some basic information about annuities. It talks about two categories of annuities, Fixed and Variable. The article states that a Fixed has a “Guaranteed minimum rate of return that never varies regardless of market swing. Insurance company assumes the risk; while a Variable has a “Variable rate of return depending on the stock, bond or money market investment. Consumer assumes the risk.” Call us once you’ve read the article and let us know if you have any questions.
