Invest or Buy an Annuity? Which Makes Sense For You?

Investors seem to have annuities on the brain these days. And it is easy to see why. There are a lot of risks out there. From rising market volatility and crashing bond prices to inflationary pressures and worries about outliving your money, there’s a good reason why annuities of all stripes are being touted by pundits, financial advisors, and the media as top investment vehicles.

In many cases, they are right.

However, the decision to buy or invest in an annuity isn’t a slam dunk for everyone. These are complex products and for many investors it may make more sense to continue along their financial plan and invest in more traditional asset classes.
