CREDIT HOURS:

The growth in popularity of indexed insurance products, specifically fixed indexed annuities and fixed indexed life insurance policies, has been dramatic. While these products are considered fixed contracts, the interest that is credited to these products is based on the performance of an external financial index. The basic concepts of these products may seem simple, but they are among the most complex of all insurance products. To many, they fall in the middle of the risk spectrum, between traditional fixed annuities and life insurance policies and variable annuities and variable life insurance policies. This course will explain how these products compare and contrast with their fixed counterparts. The course will also cover in detail different interest crediting methods and design characteristics of the indexed product, and the important suitability and market conduct issues related to these products.
