Just wanted to compliment you on your balanced presentation of equity-indexed annuities, in particular how you highlight ones that may be worth exploring, as well as those you think are a terrible deal for the consumer. Your warnings against these equity-indexed products are very refreshing. I’ve not seen that before. Thanks you for your honesty!

I really appreciate your friendly staff and valuable feedback on my annuity. You were the first group that actually helped me understand what I owned and didn’t try to sell me something but in turn educated me how to get the most out of my current annuity.
