7 percent investment return 

When considering the formula for present value of an seven percent return annuity, there are many factors to investigate along the way. While some may consider this to be a cumbersome activity, history suggests that investigating the present value of an annuity due will pay often off if not immediately then down the road. For example is one considering the purchase of an existing annuity due, or is one considering the sale of an existing annuity due, or the purchase of a new annuity? Or is one considering evaluating an existing annuity for estate tax purposes? What discount rate assumptions are proper and what financial crediting factors are appropriate?

Slide 1: ==== ==== When considering the formula for present value of an seven percent return annuity, there are many factors to investigate along the way. While some may consider this to be a cumbersome activity, history suggests that investigating the present value of an annuity due will pay often off if not immediately then down the road. For example is one considering the purchase of an existing annuity due, or is one considering the sale of an existing annuity due, or the purchase of a new annuity? Or is one considering evaluating an existing annuity for estate tax purposes? What discount rate assumptions are proper and what financial crediting factors are appropriate? http://www.sevenpercentreturn.com ==== ==== What is an equity-indexed annuity? An equity-indexed annuity is a type of contract between you and an insurance carrier. This annuity earns interest by linking to a given index. One of the most commonly used indices is the Standard & Poor's 500 Composite Stock Price Index (the S&P 500). Competitive interest rate guarantees on principle: Some equity indexed annuities are able to offer as much as a 10% interest bonus the first year. In addition, the insurance carrier typically guarantees a minimum return on your principle contribution amount over the life of the contract. This rate is guaranteed even if the index-linked rate is lower. Guaranteed minimum return rates vary from carrier to carrier, but they're typically in the range of 1-3%. Here's how you can earn 13-14% in year 1: At the time of transfer, some insurance carriers will issue an immediate 10% upfront bonus. The remaining 3-4 comes from your money usually being placed in a "fixed bucket" (like a money market) the remaining 12 months, thereby giving you a total for year 1 of 13.00-14.40%. In addition, the insurance carrier typically guarantees protection on your principle contribution amount. This means that your investment may never dip below your principle contribution. Some insurance companies even guarantee a protection of your principle balance each anniversary year of your investment. This allows your investment to potentially grow to higher balances each year allowing those new balances to become protected as well. (All the guarantees are based on the premise that you leave the money in the contract for the duration of the term).- see next section Can you lose money buying an equity-indexed annuity? With all the equity indexed annuity guarantees, you may be wondering if you can loose money investing in these types of investments. You can lose money buying an equity-indexed annuity, especially if you need to cancel your annuity early (before the term expires). There are early withdrawal penalties that apply.
Slide 2: Even with a guarantee, you can still lose money if your guarantee is based on an amount that's less than the full amount of your purchase payments. If your equity-indexed annuity only earned its minimum guarantee, it would take several years for it to "break even." Who are equity-indexed annuities more appropriate for? Equity-indexed annuities tend to be more appropriate for long-term retirement monies, where you will not access your contributions and interest credits on a regular basis. These types of investors are not concerned with the early withdrawal penalties and are more interested in the guarantees and protection offered. What are some of the contract features of equity-indexed annuities? Equity-indexed annuities are complicated products that may contain several features that can affect your return. Bass Financial Solutions, Inc. makes it a point to help you fully understand how an equity-indexed annuity computes its index-linked interest rate before you buy. An insurance carrier may credit you with a lower return than the actual index's gain. So there's a "trade-off" in kind, for the principle protection they provide. Some common features used to compute an equityindexed annuity's interest rate include: Participation Rates. The participation rate determines how much of the index's increase will be used to compute the index-linked interest rate. For example, if the participation rate is 80% and the index increases 9%, the return credited to your annuity would be 7.2% (9% x 80% = 7.2%). Interest Rate Caps. Some equity-indexed annuities set a maximum rate of interest that the equityindexed annuity can earn. If a contract has an upper limit, or cap, of 10% and the index linked to the annuity gained 10.2%, only 10% would be credited to the annuity. Margin/Spread/Administrative Fee. The index-linked interest for some annuities is determined by subtracting a percentage from any gain in the index. This fee is sometimes called the "margin," "spread," or "administrative fee." In the case of an annuity with a "spread" of 3%, if the index gained 10%, the return credited to the annuity would be 7% (10% - 3% = 7%). Another feature that can have an impact on an equity-indexed annuity's return is its indexing method (or how the amount of change in the relevant index is determined). Some common indexing methods include: Annual Reset (or Ratchet). This method credits index-linked interest based on any increase in index value from the beginning to the end of the year. Point-to-Point. This method credits index-linked interest based on any increase in index value from the beginning to the end of the contract's term. High Water Mark. This method credits index-linked interest based on any increase in index value
Slide 3: from the index level at the beginning of the contract's term to the highest index value at various points during the contract's term, often annual anniversaries of when you purchased the annuity. These and other features may be included in an equity-indexed annuity you are considering. Before you decide to buy an equity-indexed annuity, let Bass Financial Solutions, Inc. help you understand how each feature works and what impact, together with other features, it may have on the annuity's potential return. As we say to all of our clients: Like any other investment or contract that you enter into, Equity Indexed Annuities are not appropriate for everyone. They are most appropriate for those investors that have a solid understanding of the contract features and benefits. Additionally, these features and benefits must match your stated objectives and goals for your money, in order to be a suitable and viable alternative for your money. At that time, and only then, is an Equity-Indexed Annuity the right investment option for you. This article has been provided to you by Bass Financial Solutions, Inc.
