The Magic Annuity

Outperforming Mutual Funds For Over 20 years, Risk-Free

Outperform Mutual Funds

Outperform Mutual Funds

It might help to define the MAGIC ANNUITY further. It’s called a Fixed Indexed Annuity (FIA) otherwise less known as an Equity Indexed Annuity (EIA).

So, what kind of returns can we expect in an FIA? Before we look at the chart above, realize that these investment vehicles are just as varied as Mutual Funds and have many options, CAPS, and bonus structures to consider. Focus on the average returns as well as the highest returns, and notice some FIAs are out-performing others, but on the whole, they match or better the Mutual Fund returns without the risk.

It is important to note that the S&P had positive returns some years and negative returns in other years. While the FIA ALWAYS MADE POSITIVE RETURNS. The accumulation of only positive returns, no matter how small, has an overall cumulative effect on the portfolio.

NEVER LOSE PRINCIPAL

NEVER LOSE PRINCIPAL

According to a new study by DALBAR, one of the financial community’s leading independent experts for unbiased rating and performance evaluations, the typical investor in equity mutual funds has received only a 3.55% annual return…over the last 20 years.

An equity fund is a mutual fund that invests principally in stocks. It can be actively or passively (index fund) managed. Equity funds are also known as stock funds. Stock mutual funds are principally categorized according to company size, the investment style of the holdings in the portfolio and geography.

To make matters worse, when taking the 20-year average 2.17% inflation rate (a very low estimate) into consideration, the real new average annual return (increase in buying power) fo the last 20 years is only 1.71%.

PAY NO FEES​

PAY NO FEES​

The Magic Annuity has no Fees. Conversely, the Variable Annuity, which I call the Voodoo annuity, and its Uncle, Mutual Funds do. Here's an example of a 5% Bonus MAGIC ANNUITY with a 10% Commission, compared to an example of a 1% Assets Under Management FEE. Compare 15% in accumulated FEES to ZERO FEES and ZERO surrender penalties after 10 years with the MAGIC Annuity.

5% TO 10% UPFRONT BONUS

5% TO 10% UPFRONT BONUS

The Magic Annuity often offers BONUSES when you make your initial deposit. Yep, sometimes as high as 10% (if you’re 52 or younger, or 5 to 7% if older)! Imagine, you invest $100,000 in the Magic Annuity, and your first statement shows an accumulation value of $110,000!!! Wow you just made 10% return and all you did was make the initial investment! Now it’s not always 10% maybe its 5%, but that isn’t a kick in the head either!

So, let’s say the Advisor in this case made a 7% commission on your $100,000 investment. The next day your account is credited with an opening balance of $110,000. Hmmmmmm. Would you consider staying with this investment for 5 to 10 years, after which all or most of your penalties disappear? Remember, you have penalty free access, if you need it.

PENALTY FREE ACCESS

PENALTY FREE ACCESS

The Insurance Company, just like the Mutual Fund Provider or Bank, shares with you in the upside of the market returns. The difference with the MAGIC ANNUITY is that the Insurance Company GUARANTEES your principal investment, pays the up-front commission out of their own pocket, and must wait, often up to 7 years or longer, to get any return on their investment (ROI). In exchange, they require you to stay in the contract long enough for them to recoup their costs and be able to make some return on their investment. During the entire time you’re in the contract they never extract a dime out of your account and continue to credit all returns based on 100% (sometimes more) of your principal. Even if you did need some of your money early, you have so many options like:

  • 10% (sometimes more) Penalty Free Withdrawals
  • Borrow money out (must qualify)
  • Annuitize (select one of usually a dozen options to start receiving pension payments, like guaranteed income for life option or many others)
  • Hardships requests

TAX FAVORED

TAX FAVORED

The Magic Annuity isTAX-FAVORED, meaning it gives you tax advantages and lets you manage how and when you pay taxes; and For over 20 years, the typical Magic Annuity has outperformed the typical Mutual Funds investor (and thus Variable Annuities) in average returns.

Inside most Mutual Funds and Variable Annuities Tax Benefits don’t always outweigh the FEES such as the infamous 12b1 expenses which can be as high as 1.5%. Additionally, if these investments were made inside a tax-deferred account like a 401(k), 403(b), 457 (b) or IRA, about 25%-33% on average in income taxes will have to be paid, according to the Center for Retirement Research at Boston College.

The MAGIC ANNUITY, aka Fixed Index Annuity, is a viable safe alternative to Mutual Fund and Variable Annuity investing! There simply is no reason to RISK your principal for so little upside. Alternatively, if you are investing with RISK you should be receiving a much higher rate of return.

Here you can see the S&P 500 (2007 – 2018) compared against an FIA that only participates in 50% of market gains, BUT None of the losses. Notice the 50% participation FIA pretty much matches the S&P over time.

The Magic Annuity has no Fees. Conversely, the Variable Annuity, which I call the Voodoo annuity, and its Uncle, Mutual Funds have:

  1. 12b1 Fees – Funds charge these to pay for their marketing expenses and they can be as high as 1.5% of Assets.
  2. Assets Under Management Fees (AUM) – Fees charged by your Investment Advisor which can be as high as 2% of your account balance.
  3. Money Management Fees – those fees passed onto you by your Advisor who is using an outside service to “manage” the portfolio, usually around .25 to .50%.
  4. Taxes – if your investment in a Mutual Fund is not in a qualified retirement plan (403b,401K,457b,IRA) you could be getting taxed annually on any and all trades within the fund in which you made a profit (25 to 35% of gains).

Here's an example of a 5% Bonus MAGIC ANNUITY with a super long Surrender Penalty Period (10 years) and a 10% Commission, compared to an example of a 1% Assets Under Management FEE structure in a Mutual Fund or Voodoo Annuity. Over 15 years one would accumulate 15% in FEES compared to ZERO FEES and ZERO surrender penalties after 10 years in the MAGIC Annuity.

“The mutual fund industry is now the world’s largest skimming operation, a $7 trillion (now over $20 trillion) trough from which fund managers, brokers, and other insiders are steadily siphoning off an excessive slice of the nation’s household, college, and retirement savings.”
