Wink Sees Growth in [Structured] Annuity Sales
September 2, 2020 by Allison Bell
Sales of [structured] annuities were hot in the second quarter, and sales of non-variable products were not.
U.S. sales of all types of individual deferred annuities fell to $46 billion in the latest quarter, down 21% from the total for the second quarter of 2019, according to new issuer survey data from Wink Inc.

Wink’s note: While we appreciate ThinkAdvisor and Allison Bell’s coverage on Wink’s reporting very much, we would never refer to a structured annuity as a “variable indexed annuity.” While everyone has their own name for structured annuities, we do not want to confuse regulators, such as FINRA.
