Variable annuities are not suitable for meeting short-term goals because substantial taxes and insurance company charges may apply if a client withdraws their money early.
Financial professionals should have a discussion with their clients about the features, benefits, limitations, risks, and fees associated with variable annuities, and whether a variable annuity is appropriate for their clients based on their financial situation and objectives.
Investing in a variable annuity may be the answer for part of your overall retirement strategy. A variable annuity combines the potential for long-term growth through market participation with tax deferral, death benefits, and living guarantees.
Variable annuities are subject to investment risk, including loss of principal, and contract values fluctuate daily. Investment returns and principal value will fluctuate with market conditions so that units, upon distribution, may be worth more or less than the original cost.
