Information relating to annuities is intended for educational purposes only and should not be construed as comprehensive or all-inclusive. Therefore, it should not be regarded as a complete analysis of the subjects discussed and should not be used to make an investment decision.
Annuities can be an important part of an overall portfolio but may not be appropriate for everyone. Before purchasing an annuity, it is important to understand the details of the product. Certain products may not be available in your state. The terms of each indexed annuity varies. It is always important to speak to a financial professional. about an annuity’s features, benefits and fees, and whether an annuity is appropriate for you, based on your financial situation and objectives. Participation rates, cap rates and/or index spreads may be subject to change by the insurance company according to the annuity contract provisions. If the insurance company makes such changes, this could adversely affect the return. Guarantees of an indexed annuity are backed by the claims-paying ability of the underwriting insurance company. The surrender charge period for a product may be longer, and the surrender charges may be higher than other annuity products. Indexed annuities are long-term investments. If the annuity contract is surrendered early, there is the possibility of a surrender charge being imposed and/or the funds may be subject to income taxes. The IRS may also impose a 10% penalty on withdrawals prior to age 59 ½, depending on the circumstances. With indexed annuities, there is the potential to lose money, depending on the product charges and minimum guarantee contract provisions. For additional information on annuities, reference the following websites: The FINRA (www.FINRA.org), the Securities and Exchange Commission (www.SEC.gov), Insured Retirement Institute (www.irionline.org), the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (www.NAIC.org) or your state's insurance department.
Conflict of Interest
Certain of our representatives are licensed insurance agents of our affiliated or non-affiliated companies. and, in that capacity, may recommend on a fully disclosed basis the purchase of certain securities or insurance-related products. These individuals are compensated for the sale of these products. The recommendation by a representative of APO that a client purchase a commission-based product presents a conflict of interest, as the receipt of commission may provide an incentive to recommend products based on commissions received rather than on a particular client’s need. It is important to review your representative’s Brochure Supplement to be aware if any such conflicts exist.
No client is under any obligation to purchase any commission-based products from a representative of APO. Clients are reminded that they may purchase insurance-related products recommended by APO representatives through other, non-affiliated representatives and/or companies.
APO and its representatives are required to disclose all material conflicts of interest in its Form ADV Brochure. You should review our Form ADV Brochure carefully to understand such conflicts prior to engaging our services and Clients should review any material changes to our Form ADV Brochure which is required to be delivered to you.
