DI…Your Trojan Horse to Pick Up Affluent Clients–Webinar on August 4th at 3:00 p.m. EDT.
Click on the following to Sign Up for a WEBINAR I’m doing with our disability insurance expert who has a proven system for using DI as a “Trojan horse” to pick up affluent clients (especially doctors).
NO “A” rated carrier has a 50% participation rate or a 10.25% cap on the S&P 500 index on an annual pt-to-pt product. That is until now!
This new product has No Fee; No Spread; and is NOT a Multi-Year Bucket
To get higher caps/par rates in FIAs, companies throw in a fee, a spread, or you have to use a multi-year bucket. No one likes fees or spreads, and 2+ year pt-to-pt products are dangerous.
Exclusive distribution product!
If you read this and think, hey, I’ll call the IMO I work with to get access, good luck. The ability to wholesale this FIA will be limited to a very small list of distribution partners and we’re happy to announce to that we’re one of them (www.advisorshare.com). You won’t get this FIA from Advisor’s Excel, Gradient, Brokers, , or anyone else ?. So, if you want info on it, click on the link above.
The Return Potential is Unmatched
Let’s look at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) (how the money actually would have grown) as we compare the new product to other A-rated carriers who have the next best terms. I’ll do a 10-year lookback ending in December of 2021 (annual pt-to-pt with no fees/spreads).
10.25% cap = CAGR of 7.00%
9% cap = CAGR of 6.22%
2.81% = US Aggregate Bond Index (what FIAs can replace in “balanced” portfolios)
Higher cap yielded 11% better returns (and crushed AGG)!
You might think a 50% par rate would be better than a 10.25% cap. But it’s not (at least going back 10 years. What’s surprising is the difference between a 40% and 50% par rate (20% difference).
50% par rate = CAGR of 6.30%
40% par rate = CAGR of 5.06%
It’s true that the caps going back 10 years on all products have fluctuated. The point of this comparison is simply to illustrate how big a difference the yield will be with a product that has significantly higher caps/par rates. Higher caps/par rates are always better!
While you can illustrate higher returns with certain VCI indexes, illustrating an FIA using the S&P 500 index with such strong terms is preferable to a VCI that doesn’t have a long track record.
High Bail-Out Cap! A bail-out cap is a number where if the cap falls below it, the client can get his/her money back WITHOUT a surrender charge. This is a big deal on all products in case the company you are with dumps caps in the future (American Equity, Nassau Re, and others).
The bail-out cap on the 10.25% annual pt-to-pt product is 5.25%!
Wow, is what you should be saying to yourself. Why? Because new cap rates on products as recently as 12 months ago were lower than 5.25%. And if you look at the renewal caps on some of the products you’ve sold in the last year, you will know that they are 3% or lower without a bail-out cap that allows your clients to get out of the product.
2-Year pt-to-pt—I’m not a fan of these, but if you like them, the par rate is 70% and the annual cap is 18.5% on this new product.
