(Annuity interest rates can vary between states and are subject to change pending company announcement. We update our fixed rates on a regular basis. Some policies are not available in some states. Additionally, rates may be lower with some accounts if certain liquidity features are desired.)
Our clients are in search of the best annuity rates with the most highly rated carriers available. We offer both short-term and longer term accounts that can meet your needs for safety, tax-deferred growth, income and wealth transfer.
As interest rates are improving, we see the most demand for 5 year annuities offering high rates and guaranteed returns. We are licensed with several insurance companies offering yields above 3%. Assuming the economy continues to improve, 4% rates or return may be just around the corner.
It’s really a matter of what terms best suit your needs and budget. We can tailor several strategies in order to maximize growth, income and returns. Using a laddering strategy, you can have your annuity portfolio turn over every couple of years I order to maximize liquidity. This can also help to take advantage of increasing interest rates.
Fixed annuities come in two forms – MYGA (multi-year guaranteed annuity) and floating rate accounts. MYGA’s are the most popular and the most common.
With multi-year accounts, your rate is locked in for the duration that you choose. The rate is guaranteed by the insurance company and will neither increase or decrease over the selected term.
Less common are floating rate fixed annuity accounts. Interest rates can fluctuate each year and may increase or decrease depending on the economic environment. All policies will include a floor (minimum interest rate) that cannot be breached. Floating rate annuities can be advantageous in an increasing interest rate cycle. Multi-year annuity accounts have been more popular with our clients as they provide more certainty and guarantees.
Our clients purchase annuities for several reasons. Safety of principal and interest is certainly one the the most important factors. These contracts can also create guaranteed systematic income streams or tax-deferred growth, but at the same time. We help those needing immediate income as well as those wanting to defer gains and reduce taxable income.
Our agency offers a wide range of fixed annuity rates and terms from the leading insurance companies. We are constantly licensing with new carriers to offer our clients the best fixed rate of return on their investments. We will be happy to send you brochures, policy specs, and company financials on the fixed annuities you are most interested in.
