As people live longer and healthier lives, the need for retirement income that lasts throughout one’s lifetime has never been greater, but the traditional sources are no longer as secure as they once were. This has led many people to seek alternative sources, such as annuities. Annuities have become an increasingly popular means of generating retirement income as they provide many advantages over other solutions.

For the last 18 years, John has used a holistic approach to planning with managed assets, annuities, income, and protection strategies at Fidelity Investments.
