For clients seeking safety, there may be better strategies than CDs and Bonds

With the protection of Foundations Annuity, clients could have higher potential accumulation than Fixed Income vehicles in a rising rate environment.

5-yr CDs are averaging 0.28%. And the 7-yr US Constant Treasury Maturity Rate at only 1.47% isn’t faring much better.2 Take a look at how the Foundations Annuity, a fixed index annuity, stacks up against today’s CDs and Bonds with similar durations:

20-year Annualized Interest Rate

The Security Benefit Foundations Annuity (form 5800 (11-10) and ICC10 5800 (11-10)), a fixed index flexible premium deferred annuity is issued by Security Benefit Life Insurance Company. Product features, limitations and availability may vary by state. In Idaho, Foundations is issued on form ICC10 5800 (11-10).

Bonus annuities may include changes to the elements used to determine the index interest credits or changes to the interest rate that are not included in similar annuities without a bonus. These changes may include lower current interest rates, higher surrender charges, longer surrender charge periods, lower participation rates or caps, higher spreads, or other changes. The amount of charges or reduction in interest credits may exceed the amount of the bonus.

Guarantees provided by annuities are subject to the financial strength of the issuing insurance company. Annuities are not FDIC or NCUA/NCUSIF insured; are not obligations or deposits of and are not guaranteed or underwritten by any bank, savings and loan, or credit union or its affiliates; and are unrelated to and not a condition of the provision or term of any banking service or activity.

Fixed index annuities are not stock market investments and do not directly participate in any equity, bond, other security, or commodities investments. Indices do not include dividends paid on the underlying stocks and therefore do not reflect the total return of the underlying stocks. Neither an index nor any fixed index annuity is comparable to a direct investment in the equity, bond, other security, or commodities markets.
