Owning Income Annuities & Watching Lionel Messi

Owning Income Annuities & Watching Lionel Messi

As a US Soccer fan and a former professional player, I secretly knew our US Men’s National Soccer Team was going to be fighting an uphill battle against the number one team in the world, Argentina, in the Copa America Semi Final on Tuesday night.

Spoiler alert: we lost 4 – 0.

What can you do? They are the best in the world. I also knew that I was guaranteed to watch a great performance by one of the top players to ever play the game, Lionel Messi.

If you have watched him over his career like myself, you start to expect that you will be guaranteed a performance. Now, I have no allusions trying to compare a soccer great with a fixed annuity. We’d all agree that’s pretty laughable. But, let’s talk specifically about expectations.

People love him because he is consistently great. So much so that his fans expect that, day-in and day-out, he will always perform – which is why they appreciate him so much.

Expectations play a huge part in retirement. They provide peace of mind, comfort, and even relieve stress when the expectations are met.

What if your clients had an income stream that, day-in and day-out, guaranteed a check in their retirement funds for as long as your client lives?  Imagine what a paycheck – a GUARANTEED paycheck – can do to better your client’s daily life in retirement.

This type of reliability and consistent income does so much more than help the portfolio (which it does as well). Clients sleep better, worry less, and are able to focus on what’s important, like spending time with their loved ones, because they have a guaranteed income stream they can rely on.

Don’t miss the game. Look at Index Annuities with Income Riders and see how they can grow funds before retirement GUARANTEED – some as high as 10% growth per year. Then flip a switch that will provide flexible, guaranteed lifetime income off of that value, all with no stock market risk.
