We talked about this chart on the radio show this week and last. It speaks for itself. Fixed Indexed annuities won the war of return of investment plus there was no market risk involved.

Suppose you are a 65 year old man and you would like to make sure your wife will have at least $1,000,000 to live on and give to your children upon your death.

This is a bitter sweat moment for me. Up to this point, Smart Money magazine has done nothing but feed the public with false information about fixed and fixed indexed annuities.

Of course this is purley selfish so I must say, "Welcome to the club, Smart Money." Annuities are a great way to save for retirement. If only they had figured it out a little earlier, so many that listened to their advice wouldn't have lost so much money for their clients.
