What is an Investment Strategy?

Pre-defined asset allocation models for variable annuities are appropriate for investors who do not want to actively manage their annuity sub-account portfolio, for lack of time, experience or confidence. If you decide to use a pre-defined asset allocation model, consider your age, estimated time until retirement, current financial stability, and tolerance for market volatility when selecting a risk profile (such as conservative, aggressive, etc.).
