Investors Heritage Launches New Fixed Index Annuity – InsuranceNewsNet
Unlike most other AIFs where rates can be reduced by the carrier, Investors Heritage’s HGA offers policyholders fully guaranteed participation rates on indexed accounts during the surrender charge period. It also ensures that policyholders will not lose their account value when market performance is negative.
“We are excited to introduce Heritage Growth Advantage to the market,” said Robert M. Hardy Jr., CEO of Investors Heritage. “Our goal is to give our policyholders peace of mind, even when the markets are tough, knowing that Investors Heritage offers them some stability for their financial future.”
Added John F. Frye, President of Investors Heritage. “We are developing new products like the HGA to meet the critical needs of the retirement market, where planning ahead involves many unknowns. By offering a guaranteed participation rate throughout the redemption fee period, we try to remove some of this uncertainty. »
Policyholders at the time of purchase can choose a fixed compound interest rate or participate in the upside potential through one of three index options:
- Morgan Stanley Dynamic US Equity Index
- SG Intelligent Agile 6% VT Index
- S&P MARC 5% Index (multi-asset risk control)
The Morgan Stanley Dynamic US Index provides policyholders with exposure to large-cap US equities through listed futures contracts. The index targets an annualized volatility of 15% by dynamically adjusting its allocation on an intraday basis. If the index futures holdings experience significant changes in intraday volatility, the index will rebalance its allocation to seek to bring the volatility of the holdings back to the target level of volatility.
The SG Intelligent Agile 6% VT index, offered by Société Générale in partnership with Entelligent, a leader in environmental and economic analysis, is exclusively available through Investors Heritage annuity offers. The index uses Intelligent Climate’s Smart Climate model to score S&P 500 companies based on the potential impact of environmentally focused regulation and technology as well as expected energy costs. The index provides exposure to the 250 S&P 500 companies with the highest scores, helping policyholders align their support for environmental sustainability with their retirement planning.
“Investors Heritage has a long history of exceptional customer service and innovation,” said Rudy Sahay, President of Investors Heritage and Managing Partner of Aquarian Holdings. “As we grow our retirement solutions platform – with unique features and proprietary indices – we are leveraging this heritage to inform and shape our next generation of products.”
