Why I Don’t Sell Variable Annuities

Unlike other financial instruments, variable annuities bring the power of investing and insurance meshed together in one retirement product. With variable annuities, all the money that would have been paid in taxes remains in the account with the opportunity to grow until it is withdrawn. There are a lot of benefits when you buy one; you get the flexibility to move your money, legacy protection, income guarantees and more.
