Are your investments ACTIVELY Managed versus PASSIVELY Managed (which we call Lazy money). Lazy money is like most funds and many stock portfolio’s where you invest and forget. You basically “Hope” your investment grows, but in a falling market the broker, money manager, or fund managers don’t do anything to reduce your risk and potential losses. Actively managed accounts are typically for very large investors, however because of our investment platforms they are available for account sizes as small as $25,000. These are called “Fee-Based” accounts where we act on your behalf as your Fiduciary. The ACTIVE Money Managers we use are also your Fiduciaries and must act in your best interest, as we do.
For most investors the idea of reaching retirement and losing half of our life savings to market crashes or lawsuit is horrifying. In the “Crash of 2000” the stock market plunged over 50%. In the “Crash of 2007” the stock market plunged over 54%. Many of the most popular mutual funds plunged even more. The Tech Heavy Nasdaq plunged over 70% at the same time. This includes AAPL, GOOG, AMZN, PPAY, FB and the other largest tech companies in the US.
We have Homeowners insurance to protect against the possible loss due to theft, fire, hurricane, flood and other catastrophes. We have health insurance (or Medicare) to protect us against catastrophic losses due to health issues. We have auto insurance to protect against damages, or liabilities of lawsuit in an accident.
But, do you have insurance to guarantee and lock-in your retirement income, and ratchet your income higher, as the stock markets, and your portfolio move higher and higher?
Do your investments guarantee to lock-in your gains periodically for income purposes, at lease annually for most Fixed Indexed Annuities, while various Variable Annuities offer optional benefits including locking-in, or ratcheting your investment gains at least annually, quarterly, monthly and even daily?
Do your investments guarantee that even in “Down Markets” they will increase your future income at a minimum percentage such as 5, 6, 7, even 8% annually (depending of specific carriers)?
Annuities whether Fixed, Variable or Immediate offer attractive options such as Guaranteed Income for Life, and your spouses life, and Guaranteed Growth of your Future Income regardless of stock market volatility. For the latest LIMRA comparison of all annuities please contact our office.
All contract guarantees and payout rates are subject to the claims-paying ability and financial strength of the issuing insurance company.
If an advisor is not licensed (registered) to offer certain investments such as stocks, bonds, REITs, and Variable Annuities are they going to say anything good about them?
Variable Annuities are about Hedging, or insuring your income, to protect you, and your income during the next financial crisis.
Annuity contract guarantees and payout rates are subject to the claims-paying ability and financial strength of the issuing insurance company.
