Annuity Sales Training: Sell Guarantees

Anthony Owen | May 19th, 2011 | Sales Training,

Indexed annuity cap rates are dropping like rocks. Most notably, North American has seen major cap reductions on their Charter Series and other products.

Do cap rates matter to indexed annuity sales? Some agents seem to have a hard time selling indexed annuities if cap rates are “low” (See article linked below).

Variable Annuities: Not Just Risky for Policy Holders

Anthony Owen | May 16th, 2011 | News & Info,

Why are variable annuities at risk for the guaranteed benefits they provide to their policy holders?

It has to do with taking money vs. holding money. When an insurance company sells a variable annuity they take a client’s money and give it to someone else. That “someone else” is usually a stock or bond mutual fund. Therefore, the only way a variable annuity insurance company can make money is to charge fees on the premium as it “passes through their hands”.
