Episode #294: Should I Buy An Annuity Now or Wait Until a Recession?


If you’re a standup comedian, you know how important timing is. But when it comes to finances, you don’t need experience making a room full of people laugh to fully understand the crucial role timing plays in making financial decisions.

If you’ve ever bought anything else that requires financial planning, such as a car, home, or even a boat, then you’ve likely considered the timing of that purchase as a factor in that decision. If so, then you understand that the underlying interest rate environment is the basis for pricing products at a given time and, therefore, a key factor of the best window of opportunity for major purchases.

In this episode of Money Script Monday, Brian demonstrates the impact that interest rate environments can have on the outcome of an annuity purchase to offer more guidance around economic conditions to consider when adding an annuity to your financial plan.
