Annuity investment has become an increasingly popular option for many investors with the market topping more than $100 billion in sales in recent years. Due to the dual nature of annuities, they can often be misunderstood and many investors steer clear of them, hoping for the quick return rates that they often associate with higher risk investments.

In this book, you will learn exactly what annuities are and how they work. You will learn the primary purpose of an annuity and how they can help diversify your retirement options.

The pros and cons of each type and comparisons to other investment options such as CDs, mutual funds and retirement accounts will help you decide how an annuity fits into your portfolio.
