What Is an Annuity?

Increasing bar graph An annuity is a contract between you and an insurance company purchased in a lump sum or through a series of recurring premium payments. Eagle Life’s traditional fixed annuities protect your retirement funds by offering guaranteed growth at a fixed interest rate determined at the beginning of the contract.

Eagle Life’s fixed index annuities offer interest growth opportunities determined by a formula that is based on the performance of an external index, such as the S&P 500®. Fixed index annuities are considered insurance products and not directly tied to or invested in the stock market or share ownership. This prevents the fixed index annuity contract from losing money because of index volatility with the market. Another benefit is the interest credited will never be less than zero. 

Eagle Life is dedicated to helping our contract owners protect, preserve and secure their assets for a financially stable future. We have developed innovative, competitive products that can provide simplicity, flexibility and variety, as well as offer stability and longevity for many years to come.

Eagle Life is also committed to providing outstanding customer service. We have a deep-rooted commitment for excellence in every interaction we have with you. We follow a Golden Rule approach by treating you the way we want to be treated. This includes:

• A dedication to superior customer service

The American Equity Investment Life Insurance and Eagle Life Insurance Company Relationship

Eagle Life first opened its doors in August 2011 in West Des Moines, Iowa. David J. Noble, founder of our parent company American Equity Investment Life Insurance Company®, recognized the need for an additional company that understood and focused on the financial institution distribution channels. He formed Eagle Life as a subsidiary of American Equity with the purpose of providing a unique and separate business model to meet the needs of the financial institution marketplace.
