SALES WEEK: Say Goodbye to Bear Markets – Flyer: Recovering From a Market Correction
Say Goodbye to Bear Markets
Market corrections (10% loss or more) occur every 1.84 years, and last an average of 188 days.*
Index annuity owners are exempt from market corrections!
For clients in or near retirement who own stocks or mutual funds, market corrections can have a severe impact on their retirement security.
Recovering from a market correction requires a greater percentage increase than the correction itself. This chart shows the recovery percentages necessary for various market-loss percentages. For example, after a 25% market loss, an original $100,000 investment now has a value of $75,000; the rate of return needed to grow $75,000 to $100,000 is 33.3% (100,000 ÷ 75,000 – 1 = 33.3%).

Eliminate the Stress of Market Loss
An index annuity allows you to offer your clients index-linked upside potential, with downside protection. Index credits will never be less than zero.
Do index-annuity owners get all the upside? No. But when you remove the downside, a portion of the upside – through a cap or participation rate – provides a competitive rate of return!
