You have probably followed a 60/40 portfolio model to build your clients' wealth, but recent declines in the market have caused bonds to underperform. So how do you keep your clients happy during this type of market volatility?

When bonds aren't yielding the desired returns, you need a better approach and a simplified way to explain it to your clients.

It's time to consider a Fixed Income Annuity (FIA) as an alternative.

FIAs provide a level of protection from downturns in the market, particularly during times of great volatility, and right now—FIAs are outperforming bonds significantly.

In fact, according to a recent study by AllianceBernstein: using fixed index annuities as a bond alternative improved portfolio outcomes vs. a 60/40 portfolio 72-92% of the time**.

Join us on Monday, April 25th at 3:00 pm EDT to learn how to:

  • Use The Bucket Plan® Best Interest Process
  • Demonstrate where an FIA fits into the client's financial plan
  • Deliver reliable income with FIAs
  • Protect against market downturns
  • Provide more growth & wealth to the client
