With the stock market so unpredictable, and interest rates so low, retirees and those nearing retirement are left with fewer and fewer investment choices. Retirees naturally gravitate to safer investments in retirement. It can be said that doing so is a sign of intelligence because the idea of starting over or losing ten years of savings in a matter of months makes no sense at all past the age of fifty.  After the huge market swings in December of 2018 and again in May of 2019,  many investors have confirmed what they already knew. Their risk tolerance and time horizon are no longer the same. The demand for a safe asset that pays far more than a bond or bank account, and that can share in market-linked gains without any market losses is rising in demand. Today, we'll define exactly what a Next Generation Fixed Index annuity IS, and what it can DO for your retirement. You don't want to miss today's show, MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!
