Indexed variable annuities protect against volatility, provide opportunity and people want them.

January 29, 2021

With COVID-19 vaccinations underway, the prospect of a new normal feels within reach in 2021. However, investing still poses challenges and uncertainty for individuals, especially those looking towards a long retirement.

Last year, a confluence of factors made it challenging for individuals to fund their retirement goals, according to Dylan Tyson, president of Prudential Annuities.

Indexed variable annuities are emerging as a solution to help investors achieve their long-term financial goals. One such solution is Prudential’s FlexGuard® indexed variable annuity. Launched in May 2020, it features index strategies with buffers that can help limit market losses while providing investors the opportunity for asset growth. Tyson points to the immediate popularity of FlexGuard, which quickly surpassed $1 billion in sales inside of six months, setting an industry record, as evidence of the demand for these types of products.

In fact, Tyson noted that financial professionals who have never before sold an annuity are now looking closely at FlexGuard to help meet their client’s financial needs, especially as consumers are looking for investment-focused products at a time of historically low interest rates.

Tyson urges investors to take a hard look at their retirement portfolios and assess if they are positioning themselves to reach their investment goals towards retirement amid an uncertain world.
