Analyzing the Fixed Indexed Annuity (FIA)

Analyzing the Fixed Indexed Annuity (FIA)

Overall Rating: 4.5 / 5


Fixed indexed annuities (FIAs) can solve for various retirement planning challenges.

They combine the returns of an index, a concept familiar to many customers, with a crediting structure that can be complicated even for financial professionals to understand. Financial professionals may have difficulty explaining the performance expectations of these products, and determining how they best fit into a client’s overall financial plan. Because of the increasing popularity of FIAs, carriers are rapidly evolving their product designs, making it even more crucial for financial professionals to understand how these products are priced, facilitating more frequent and effective use of these products.

  1. Learn about basic pricing dynamics for an FIA;
  2. Better understand how an index’s returns interact with the crediting strategy to generate yield;
  3. Understand how low-volatility indices affect FIAs;
