Consider your financial needs and the differences between each Aspida annuity before making a purchase.
Aspida’s Fixed Annuity vs. Fixed Index Annuity
|Fixed Annuity||Fixed Indexed Annuity|
|Growth Potential||Guaranteed rates, typically higher than CDs||Positive return based on selected indices|
|Beneficiaries||Assets passed without probate||Assets passed without probate|
|Risk Level||Low risk||Medium risk|
Aspida’s fixed annuities are all single premium deferred fixed multi-year guaranteed annuities (MYGA) with a two-to-seven-year guarantee period option. Your MYGA will grow tax-deferred and most offer flexibility to adjust for your current financial situation.
