The contractual details built into any given annuity agreement can vary greatly from one product to the next. Annuity products also differ widely in their appropriateness for any particular investor. In the select circumstances where an annuity product might be considered for a client, SG Long & Company’s advisors focus on matching the client with an annuity that is appropriate for his/her financial objectives. To be able to communicate the various risks and potential rewards of any given annuity contract, the advisor must first understand the details him/herself. SG Long & Company’s advisors focus on understanding the complexities of the various annuity options one might have and endeavor to match clients with annuities that are appropriate for the client — not necessarily those that are lucrative for the advisor.
