Sammons Retirement Solutions® Set to Wholesale New Registered Index-Linked Variable Annuity (RILA)
Innovative RILA Offering Can Help Clients Prepare for Retirement
West Des Moines, Iowa – July 7, 2022 – Almost half of all Americans¹ have questions and concerns about outliving their money. It is a common fear, further exacerbated by growing inflation and factors that seem outside of their control. The new LiveWell Dynamic AnnuitySM, issued by Midland National® Life Insurance Company – a member company of Sammons Financial Group – and made available through Sammons Retirement Solutions®, a division of Sammons Institutional Group®, Inc., can help ease many of these typical client concerns.
“Growing your retirement savings while protecting your money can be difficult to do, considering that growing your money more aggressively results in taking on some level of risk,” said Bill Lowe, President of Sammons Institutional Group. “The LiveWell Dynamic Annuity allows clients to seek and find more upside growth potential than a standard fixed index annuity, while limiting the amount of money that may be lost during market downturns.”
The LiveWell Dynamic Annuity allows contract holders to choose the level of protection that’s right for them. It is designed to help reduce the impact of costly market downswings, while allowing them to capture some of the growth on the upswing through the variable separate accounts and Cycle index account investment options. These options provide a level of protection to help limit losses in a volatile market, and offer flexibility to pivot mid-cycle.2
“Finding a balance of risk and reward can be challenging. If you risk everything, you have no protection. If you protect everything, your growth opportunities are limited,” added Lowe. “The LiveWell Dynamic Annuity is designed to meet a client’s long-term goals and if their objectives change or the financial market evolves, they can work with their financial professional to reallocate and adjust their investment and risk exposure along the way.”
