Annuities can be a safe way to grow your money – but they’re not without their limitations.

In our “Annuities – Why Ever Use Them” series, we’ve talked a lot about the advantages of using a fixed index annuity. However, there are always drawbacks to an investment.

If you’re thinking about purchasing a fixed index annuity, there are two main limitations to consider. The first is how much liquidity you have, and the second is surrender charges. In this episode, we’re going to explain how both of these limitations work, how to avoid them, and what you can do to balance your portfolio.

In this episode, find out:

  • A quick recap of our annuities series so far
  • How liquid an annuity is and how that affects your overall portfolio
  • What a surrender charge is and how it works
  • The three elements to investing
