Casey just saw the article “Longevity annuities can be a good deal for seniors. But not many people buy them” posted to CNBC.com. Crown Haven Wealth Advisors has long believed in annuities as a great retirement.
The more popular and broadly known variable annuities saw sales of $99 billion last year. In contrast, the umbrella of deferred income annuities of which longevity annuities are a subset saw $1.7 billion in sales in 2020, according to LIMRA, an insurance industry group.
According to the article… “The mismatch is largely due to the psychological hurdle of handing over a large sum of money that won’t yield a benefit if one doesn’t survive another 20 or so years, Blanchett said.
The reason we see this being true is that it’s easier to ask a client for smaller deposits of money on a regular basis to get a quick sale even though it may not be the best investment vehicle for the client.
Since our inception, Crown Haven has been a fee-based fiduciary advisor for our clients, always using the Fiduciary Standard as the bedrock of our planning philosophy.
