FIXED INCOME COMPARISON TOOL
Research by leading academics1 supports the use of annuities to generate retirement income more reliably and efficiently than traditional fixed income allocations like bonds. Annuities require less money to fund a retirement income goal than traditional fixed income methods, provide clients with peace of mind and a license to spend in retirement via guaranteed income, and enable advisors to increase AUM.
Fixed Income Comparison Case Study:
Client: 58-year-old male in Ohio
Income Need: $30,000/yr. in addition to Social Security income
How much does it take to meet the client’s income need with fixed income vs. with a Commission-Free annuity?
Due to its inherent income generation efficiency, the annuity requires $384k to meet the income need, while the fixed income portfolio requires $760k. This difference of $376k can be deployed elsewhere for growth purposes, which can be used to fund legacies, hedge against inflation, or provide for health-related expenses and emergencies. And, the annuity will deliver the same risk and investment profiles for the client as fixed income.
The potential impact of reinvesting the surplus assets
By investing the difference, the client gains an additional $2.2M in asset growth over 30 years, while the firm generates an additional $382k in revenue charging a 1% advisory fee.
