There are differences, both large and small, between fixed index annuities and other investment options. But in the end, they all have similar goals: to ensure financial security for you and/or your family.
First, a little about annuities in general. Basically, there are four types of annuities: fixed, variable, immediate, and fixed index. They all share certain characteristics. All annuities are a contract between a financial institution and an individual. The individual agrees to make premium payments, which the financial institution will return (with interest) in a lump sum or as incremental payments. Any money placed into an annuity is tax deferred.
So how do fixed index annuities differ from other annuities? Fixed index annuities are linked to a financial index, e.g. the S&P 500. People often choose this type of investment because there is the ability to make a stronger return than other options. Many investments offer little more than to return your premium and a small amount of interest. On the other hand, fixed index annuities let you experience the benefits of a higher interest rate without leaving you exposed to major stock market risks.
