I had a great time with my friend Bob Carlson of RetirementWatch on his recent phone conference call. More than 2,000 consumers across the country joined a call to hear Bob, and I comment on the current interest rate environment, markets, and how MYGAs (Multi-Year Guarantee Annuities) might help buffer upcoming volatility. In a world of ZOOM calls, internet marketing, and everything high-tech, this teleconference call was refreshingly “old school.” Roger Michalski of Eagle Publications moderated the call and provided real-time caller questions for Bob and me to answer. Bob has been a regular guest on my “Fun With Annuities” podcast and is one of the most respected retirement, social security, and tax expert in the U.S. He didn’t disappoint on this call. The depth of knowledge Bob provides is unmatched, and his newsletter and content available on his website retirementwatch.com should be required reading for anyone looking to manage their retirement assets. Of course, I was my typical “in your face” Stan The Annuity Man self when it came to the annuity questions. Brutally factual, and the walking middle finger of annuity truth, as you expect me to be. I encourage you to give this call a listen. But just a warning upfront, have pen and paper to take notes. It’s a firehose of factual information. It’s the “Bob & Stan” show. Enjoy!
