“Fun With Annuities” The Annuity Man Podcast

Dec 22, 2020

In this episode, The Annuity Man discusses: 

  • Having money in the stock market (even if you don’t have or need an annuity).
  • Why you should be in the stock market, either managing yourself or having someone manage it for you. 
  • Understanding if you need an annuity and how to allocate and proportion your money. 
  • Diversification of risk and assets. The stock market and annuities can work together, but they cannot be compared. 


Key Takeaways: 

  • 80% of all stock market trades are not done by a real-life, breathing human. 
  • If you want market growth, stick with the stock market. Annuities are for the guarantees, not growth.
  • Never buy annuities for what they might do. You can’t look at back-tested numbers, you can only look at what it will do, not what it might do. 
  • Never compare the stock market to annuities. Never compare investments to contracts. One is a shouldering of the risk and one is the transferring of the risk. 


"It comes down to two things: how much risk are you willing to shoulder and how much risk are you wanting to transfer? Everybody is different." —  Stan The Annuity Man
