“Fun With Annuities” The Annuity Man Podcast

Jun 22, 2022

In this episode, The Annuity Man discussed: 

  • Not everyone needs to be exposed
  • Bonds and market volatility 
  • Looking into lifetime income 
  • Questions to ask your advisor 


Key Takeaways: 

  • Financial advisors tend to advise their clients to do 60% equity and 40% bond split or that they always have some exposure, but it doesn’t apply to everybody. People who’ve won the game don’t have to keep playing. 
  • Bonds aren’t fool-proof; they go down in value if interest rates go up. If you’ve already accumulated enough to live the life you want and don’t want to tie yourself into any risks or volatility, then don’t. You have that option. 
  • If peeling off the interest rate isn’t an option for you, then why not look into lifetime income? You can structure your annuity where your money doesn’t have to go to the annuity company when you die. There are so many ways you can structure the contract in a way that achieves your goals. 
  • Advisors get paid assets under management, which is why they want you to dip into the market. Ask your advisor if you have enough money to live off. From a fiduciary standpoint, they’ll have to look at the money and tell you honestly if you are able to do that. 


"Plan for when you win the game to stop playing the game. Look up at the scoreboard; you won!" —  Stan The Annuity Man.
