Jacksonville, FL (PRWEB) March 27, 2004 -
Before allocating your next retirement plan contribution to a plan that is high in risk, high in fees, and low on disclosure about the true risks and costs, check with The Bibb Group. Whether you are self-employed, own a small business, or are already retired, The Bibb Group can show you how to protect your assets from market loss while still participating in the stock market, insulate your account from fees and charges, guarantee your retirement income, and deduct much more from your tax bill.
Those benefiting most from our services are small business owners looking for a plan that can reduce taxable income by as much as $200,000, has little or no fees and/or administration costs, is protected from creditor claims and lawsuits, is protected from market loss, and provides a guaranteed lifetime income in retirement.
HereÂs a good example of how a SEP IRA invested in a guaranteed index annuity with no fees can protect you from untimely market downturns. One of the best examples of a prolonged bear market was the 1970Âs; in the 1973-74 downturn stock prices fell more than 40%. The S&P 500 closed at an all time high towards the end of 1972 and it wasnÂt until 1980 that these levels were retraced. So, if you bought at year-end in 1972, it would have taken about 7 years to break even using the traditional buy and hold technique. Utilizing a 90% participation index annuity with the annual reset method from 1972 to 1979 would have resulted in a return for those seven years of approximately 70%Âeven though the index had not yet returned to its former high. ItÂs hard to beat an investment that can only go up.
