(Sheryl) Moore’s Law on Annuities in 2021
June 22, 2021 by Kerry Pechter
RIJ talks with Sheryl Moore of Wink, Inc., the annuity data and consulting firm, about the results of her first-quarter 2021 survey of annuity sales. She shares her opinion on a range of annuity-related topics.
“The structured annuity is the golden child right now,” Moore told RIJ. “It’s relatively new, and everybody likes a bright shiny new object. Also, the current pricing is so difficult right now for fixed indexed annuities that structured annuities look much more attractive by comparison. The shift away from variable annuities with living benefits has also helped the RILAs.”
