An Annuity is a long-term insurance product that pays out income. Many people purchase an annuity to provide a combination of protection, tax deferral and income in retirement. Each of the three annuity types offers unique benefits for individual retirement income needs:
A Unit Investment Trust (UIT) is a pooled investment vehicle in which a portfolio of securities is deposited into a trust and only a fixed number of units are issued. UITs employ a buy and hold investing philosophy – they invest in a fixed portfolio of equities and/or bonds for a predetermined period of time. The securities within the trust, which do not change during the term, are selected after in-depth analysis and research and come from a variety of investment styles, sectors and asset classes.
