SecondaryMarketAnnuity.net, the leading source of annuity listings and comprehensive advice recently said that purchasing annuities or structured settlements are a great way to provide a guaranteed income base in contrast to the “Buy and Hold Stocks and Bonds” approach that consistently ignores or dismisses annuities.
According to them, it is a view that is gaining traction in mainstream investment and financial publications such as the Wall Street Journal. They recently said in an article that: “For those concerned they might outlive their assets, annuities can provide a guaranteed income stream. In general, investing professionals say that putting part of one’s nest egg in annuities can open the door to taking on more stock-market risk, which in turn offers the possibility for more portfolio growth.” In response to the article, Nathaniel Pulsifer of SecondaryMarketAnnuity.net said: “It is a good article that we agree with, advocating to create a guaranteed income floor that will allow investors to take more risks elsewhere to chase higher yield, if they are so inclined. It’s exactly the strategy we advocate with clients”
Secondary Market Annuities can provide a guaranteed monthly income for life depending on the value of the investment purchased, allowing investors to increase their risk elsewhere. SecondaryMarketAnnuity.net claim that another reason for their popularity is that they combine high yields with low risks and this appeal’s to a broad cross section of investors and retirees that remain anxious about investing large sums of money into the stock market.
