The Guardian Asset Management Group at Steward Partners offers a variety of annuity solutions that best fit your needs including:
Variable annuities are a tax-deferred investment vehicle designed for retirement income and typically are accompanied by a guaranteed lifetime income rider provided by the issuing insurance company. Returns they deliver are based on the performance of the underlying securities, and usually offer a wide array of securities that the annuity holder can choose from.
Fixed annuities are designed as savings vehicles, similar to a CD, and are built for safety of principal and a consistent, guaranteed return. They offer a guaranteed minimum interest rate and tax-deferred accumulation.
Adding an income annuity to your portfolio may be a way to create not a lifetime payment stream, but also potentially produce more assets for growth and liquidity.
