Fixed Index Annuities
Give clients the protections they need and the opportunity for potential interest growth that they want.
What is a fixed index annuity?
A fixed indexed annuity is a contract between you and Eagle Life where the potential interest earned is linked to an external index. Eagle Life uses two common indices:
The S&P 500® Index contains stocks from 500 various industry leaders and is widely regarded as a leading benchmark for U.S. stock market performance.
The S&P 500® Dividend Aristocrats® Daily Risk Control 5% Index is a non-proprietary volatility control index that consists of the S&P 500 Dividend Aristocrats Index and a cash (accruing interest at 3 Month LIBOR1) component. The Index is dynamically adjusted between the two components to target a 5% level of volatility. The S&P 500 Dividend Aristocrats Index is made up of S&P 500 member companies that have followed a policy of consistently increasing dividends every year for at least 25 consecutive years. This Index is well diversified across all market sectors.
