Because the market does not provide security, you may want your financial strategies to include some guaranteed* income products. For example, annuities, which are insurance products with guarantees*, can provide a source of supplemental income throughout your retirement.
Twenty-first century asset protection calls for more than just strategic asset allocation. Including products like annuities in your retirement income strategy can help protect* your money from declines due to market losses.
Diversifying your retirement assets among a variety of vehicles— both through insurance products and investments depending on what is appropriate for your situation—may offer you the best chance of meeting your retirement income goals throughout your lifespan.
*Guarantees are backed by the financial strength and claims-paying ability of the issuing insurance company.
