The needs of Americans are so clear, and the products we offer can solve many of the concerns. Okay, I realize that there is not the upside potential of the equity markets. I also understand that interest rates are lower than they were compared to past years. But, I also say… compared to what? The 30 year treasury, as I write this, is under 2%. The 10 year is under 1.25%. What are your local banks paying on CD’s? These are questions and topics to discuss with you clients and prospects.
I believe that all of this goes back to a consultative approach with our clients. Dividing up essential and discretionary income needs is so important. Then, ask you client what they want and need? There are a lot of choices in our insured products portfolios. Sure, the lifetime income annuity is one way to go. But, what about the fixed index annuity with a lifetime income provision? I have been in this business for quite some time - as an MDRT member, career agency head, president of a couple of life insurance companies and now owning, along with my sons, an Insurance Marketing Organization. I believe that one of the reasons our digital annuity lead program is so strong is that we give examples of lifetime income payments based on when the prospect wants and needs the money.
I have always said that we can tell the client, just tell me how much you need, when you need it and we will tell you how much money to place in our product to give you the guaranteed flow of income… FOR LIFE that you need. So, I believe that we are in the best place ever. Our products are needed and desired. We just have to ask questions and tell the story.
