Cerulli: Insurers Embrace Opportunity With RILAs
December 22, 2020 by John Hilton
Registered index-linked annuities (RILAs) are poised to exhibit robust growth as additional large, reputable insurers enter the space with innovative concepts, the research firm Cerulli Associates found.
RILAs have garnered steady growth in recent years to reach a quarterly record of nearly $5 billion in 4Q 2019, according to Cerulli’s latest report, U.S. Annuity Markets 2020: A Decade of Adaptation.
Wink’s Note: I always get nervous when people refer to Structured Annuities as “Index Linked Annuities” or “Registered Indexed Annuities.”
It wasn’t long ago that U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission made the mistake of describing structured annuities, while issuing an “Investor Bulletin” on “Indexed Annuities.” – sjm
