Guaranteed Alternatives to CDs Fixed AnnuitiesThe fixed annuity is an investment contract between an annuitant (investor) and an insurance company. The insurance company agrees to pay the annuitant a fixed income for a period of time based upon the value invested in the annuity. For this reason fixed annuities are also referred to as fixed income annuities.One of the most appealing aspects of a fixed annuity is that it pays a fixed dollar amount for the duration of the investment. This can be a particularly appealing feature in times of market volatility (something pretty common these days). The fixed annuity behaves similar to a CD, and provides a guaranteed payment for the duration of the payout period.The advisors at Sterling Manor Financial are independant and can work with you to pick the best investment for your individual needs.
