Fixed Indexed Annuities
The interest earned on an FIA can be substantially higher because it ties the interest (return) to an external market index. In fact, this product was developed as an alternative to traditional savings vehicles because of its ability to provide greater returns. Fixed indexed annuities are useful for those who are adverse to risk in the stock market.

At Alloy Wealth Management, we sometimes recommend them as part of a balanced portfolio when it comes to investment management and retirement planning services. However, it’s important to know that a fixed indexed annuity is not an investment, it’s an insurance product. A fixed indexed annuity is a contractually guaranteed transfer-of-risk strategy, and a non-correlated asset.
Please note: A Fixed Annuity should not be confused with a Variable Annuity. Variable Annuities are securities, sold by prospectus, and you can lose your money because you carry the risk of its performance. A Fixed Indexed Annuity is not a security, and therefore, your principal and earnings are guaranteed to never lose value as long as the insurance carrier is able to pay claims.
Fixed Indexed Annuity payments and guarantees are dependent upon the claims-paying ability of the insurance carrier.
When it comes to Fixed Indexed Annuities, you can count on Alloy Wealth Management.
