FYI

Annuities to cover a “Back Swan” event, you say? In the course of an insurance policy review I touched on option trading and low-and-behold the agent had a product to suggest…fancy that! It’s an annuity hedge for market downside, as if we don’t know about long puts…oops…shades of Feb 5. Anyway, I thought y’all might be interested in its structure, or not. I’m not buying, selling or recommending, I don’t know how much it costs, keep or toss. Have a great evening.
