Structured or unstructured, that is the question: Managing risk with registered index-linked annuities
Uncertainty and exposure to market losses are major concerns for clients as they plan for retirement. Registered index-linked annuities (RILA) are one of the fastest growing segments of the annuities market and offer both protection and growth opportunities for clients to reach their financial retirement goals.

Join us to learn more about RILAs, find out how we’ve collaborated with Halo Investing, and hear how Jackson can partner with you to help your clients manage risk no matter what comes next in the market.

Key discussion topics include:

• What is a registered index-linked annuity?
• Where do structured investments like RILAs fit in portfolio construction?
• Jackson RILA Tool powered by Halo

A RILA is a long-term, tax-deferred vehicle designed for retirement. It is subject to investment risk, its value will fluctuate, and loss of principal is possible. A RILA, which is an insurance contract, allows you to choose how you want to prioritize growth opportunities while managing the amount of loss you may assume. Earnings are taxable as ordinary income when distributed. Individuals may be subject to a 10% additional tax for withdrawals before age 59½ unless an exception to the tax is met.

Annuities are issued by Jackson National Life Insurance Company (Home Office: Lansing, Michigan) and are distributed by Jackson National Life Distributors LLC, member FINRA. May not be available in all states and state variations may apply. These products have limitations and restrictions. Contact Jackson for more information.

Jackson® is the marketing name for Jackson Financial, Inc. and Jackson National Life Insurance Company®.

Not available in OR, NE and NY.
