Tim Brown of 360 Family Office discovered the power fee-based fixed index annuities as an alternative for his clients.
PROFILE: Tim had traditionally avoided annuities, as he believed purchasing them would ultimately reduce the value
of his clients’ portfolios. After realizing the cost and complexity of trading bonds to generate income, Tim knew he needed new fixed income alternatives for his clients.
SOLUTION: DPL’s Commission-Free Fixed Index Annuities (FIAs)
OUTCOME: Working with his DPL Consultant, Tim learned that instead of reducing portfolio values, annuities can be incredibly additive when used as a fixed income allocation. Through this new approach, Tim was able to improve allocations by reducing reliance on yield for performance. Additionally, FIA living benefits helped Tim generate guaranteed lifetime income for his clients while reducing pressure on their portfolios.
“Once you see the compelling math behind guaranteed income, it’s a no- brainer — the outcomes are shocking and significantly more secure.” — Tim Brown, DPL Member
What is a Fixed Index Annuity (FIA)?
A fixed index annuity is a tax-deferred insurance product that provides upside potential while protecting the principal from market losses. FIAs are often used as a fixed income allocation, and can also be used to deliver an efficient, guaranteed lifetime income through optional living benefits.
How to Think About FIAs
Principal Protection: FIAs offer performance potential with total principal protection and annual resets to lock in new values.
Fixed Income: FIAs can be used as a fixed income allocation for client portfolios, providing performance driven by an equity index, not yield.
Guaranteed Income: FIAs can be used to efficiently generate guaranteed lifetime income without annuitization.

Guarantees are based on the financial strength of the issuing insurance company. Returns are based on the performance of an underlying index, such as the S&P 500® Composite Stock Price Index. While the benchmark index does follow the market, as an investor, your money is never directly exposed to the stock market. ©2023 DPL Financial Partners, LLC. All rights reserved.
