Stan The Annuity Man: The Only Thing Complex About Annuities Are the Sales Pitches

In this episode, The Annuity Man discussed:

  • Annuities are not complicated
  • Understand what you are buying
  • Trusting true fiduciaries

Key Takeaways:

  • Annuities are simple if you focus on the guarantees. It’s agents who are focused on self-interest that pitch products that make annuities too complicated. Often, they entice their clients with misleading backtested numbers and value-less upfront bonuses that seem like “free money.”
  • If you can’t explain the strategy or the sales pitch to a nine-year-old, do not buy it. There is no urgency for you to buy an annuity; the only urgent and important thing is for you to understand what you are getting into.
  • The longer the surrender charge and the more complex the strategy, the higher the built-in commission is for the agent. Putting the client’s interest first should be the basic requirement to be an agent. However, that is not the case most of the time. Sadly, even some that claim to be a fiduciary

"This is a simple, simple industry with simple, simple solutions. The people that are making it complex are the agents and advisors selling the products in a complex way, instead of stripping it down to the basics." — Stan The Annuity Man.
