John Olsen: Annuity Royalty Shares Wisdom (TAM Classic)

In this episode, The Annuity Man and John Olsen discuss:

  • The suitability approach and consumer trust
  • How the annuity industry can be better
  • Approaching people who hate annuities
  • Risk management and risk transfer

Key Takeaways:

  • There is a considerable certainty that companies out there are determined to give the right product to their clients.
  • If you’re looking for a solution for your client, the agent should be able to show 3-10 companies that could get the client what they want and need.
  • Improving your knowledge of annuities as an agent is simple: read the contract. Don’t rely on the marketing material, read the hard words.
  • Here’s what you can do with risks: you either assume it, remove it, reduce it, or transfer it. Annuities allow you to transfer risks.

"These are investments to a degree, but most annuities are risk management tools. There are a few things you can do with risks: assume it, remove it, reduce it, or transfer it… Transfer the risk, that’s what annuities do. Fixed annuities are all about guarantees." — John Olsen
