Highlights

In 2020, the annuity market, along with the entire world, had to learn to adapt to an overwhelming amount of change and turmoil. During this time, the equity markets saw record high volatility and the industry experienced record low interest rates, as the global pandemic crippled the economy. Through all of the chaos, the annuity market showed its resilience and continued to underscore the benefit these products provide in retirement planning.

As vaccines roll out at a rapid pace in the U.S., we are entering a new normal. Please join Teddy Panaitisor and Todd Giesing for a look at the new normal for the individual annuity market, and where Secure Retirement Institute is forecasting sales to go.
