New Approaches to Retirement Income: Utilizing the Benefits of Investment-Only VAs

The retirement income challenge is real. Over the next decade, more than 10,000 Baby Boomers will turn sixty-five every day. They share one common fear: outliving their retirement savings. And advisors share their concerns. 71 percent of RIAs and fee-based advisors say that the three biggest challenges to generating retirement income today are confronting a low-yield market environment, managing ongoing volatility and maintaining adequate equity exposure. Laurence Greenberg, President of Jefferson National, examines how complex market dynamics have forced many traditional variable annuity companies to re-price, re-tool or retreat from the industry entirely—and how innovative companies have fostered the growth of a new generation of IOVAs.

Greenberg explains how asset location is an effective strategy to minimize the impact of taxes, enhance after-tax returns and create "tax alpha" without increasing risk—and next-generation low-cost, Investment-Only Variable Annuities (IOVAs) are an effective solution once clients max out traditional tax-deferred vehicles, such as IRAs and 401(k)s.
