Okay, my company is critical of equity indexed annuities, saying they feel they are "too risky". They seem to be a great product on the surface, with a person being able to get a substantial portion of market gain most years and a guaranteed that ain't that far off what the fixed annuities offer. I actually wonder how the companies offer them and stay in business. An NASD article implied that there could be issues of insurer solvency down the road, but is that legit or does the NASD just want to get its regulating hands on them?
