The Case for Indexed Annuities

Sandra Block
February 19, 2021

One of the many drawbacks of record-low interest rates is that they have made creating an income stream in retirement significantly more complicated. Retirees and near-retirees can no longer rely on certificates of deposit and U.S. Treasuries to provide reliable, risk-free income. Interest rates are so low that these investments no longer keep up with inflation, which means investors effectively lose money over time. Likewise, the traditional 60-40 portfolio—60% stocks and mutual funds and 40% government bonds—has fallen out of favor with some analysts because of the abysmal returns from the bond portion.
