Market Insights

Designing Efficient Income…for Life

With less-than-inspiring prospects for market returns, investors face a stiff challenge in generating efficient income while still bestowing a legacy at the end of retirement. Reaching beyond traditional market building blocks to embrace the income-generating power of annuities could go a long way toward tackling the income challenge.

Market Insights

The Fixed Index Annuity

With a challenging market expected ahead, the classic 60/40 stock/bond strategy will likely struggle to build wealth and fund retirement spending for investors. Allocating some traditional core bond exposure to a fixed index annuity could change the game. 



AB’s unique combination of expertise, insights and global reach allows us to anticipate and advance the interests of your clients around the world
