Invest where you belong.
Americans have over $4.2 trillion invested in Individual Retirement Accounts – almost half of all retirement assets.* An IRA is an investment account that belongs to you, to which you contribute. It can consist of stocks, mutual funds, bonds, annuities, certificates or other investment products. Gains grow tax deferred until they’re distributed. In some cases, they’re not taxed at all. Explore the features of both a Roth and Traditional IRA to see if an IRA is right for you. There is also an IRA calculator available to help you determine which type of IRA contribution is appropriate for you given your personal financial information, rate of return and years until retirement.
With Mutual funds investors pool their money into a diversified, managed portfolio of securities. This gives ordinary Americans access to professional fund managers. These mutual fund managers decide the best time to buy and sell providing you the expertise of investment professionals. Funds are aggressive, conservative and places in between.*
*Before investing in a mutual fund, carefully consider its investment objectives, risks, fees, and expenses, which are included in the prospectus available from the fund. Read it carefully before investing.
Managed accounts are portfolios designed for individuals to match their specific financial needs with portfolio objectives, and managed by professional investment managers. Often these accounts offer an avenue for individuals to access investment managers that are generally available only to institutional-level investors.
Stocks and Bonds
Stocks and bonds can range from conservative to ultra aggressive.
When you invest in individual stocks, you become a part owner of the business, with all the ups and downs. You can vote at shareholder meetings and receive profits allocated to owners. You may get very high returns, but you may also lose money.
Protection for what matters most.
You’ve worked hard to build the life you’ve wanted. Insurance can protect you and those you love from an unexpected death, illness and even from living longer than expected. By protecting yourself with life and long-term care insurance, and with an annuity, you can help yourself find peace of mind in knowing you’ve done the right thing.
People buy life insurance to protect those left behind in the wake of an untimely death. Whether it’s to assure that a son or daughter goes to college or to assure the comfort and safety of a spouse, life insurance is essential to assure that your dreams become a reality – whether you’re here or not.
Your golden years could be very expensive or very well thought out.
The day may come when you need long-term care. It can be very expensive and Medicare doesn’t usually supplement that cost. Without a way to pay for the expenses associated with long-term care, your savings could be at risk as well as the financial security you planned on leaving your family.
Financial Planning / Investment Strategies / Annuities
Annuities are contracts with an insurance company that can help protect you against the risk of outliving your assets. Annuities provide future income in return for your contributions.
You make payments and accrue interest and income over time. A “deferred annuity” allows you to accumulate funds tax-deferred and then establish a payout stream at a later date. An “immediate annuity” can provide a payout beginning immediately after an initial premium payment. Annuities offer an array of choices both during the deferral and payout periods to suit your needs and investment style.
