February 2017 Fixed Annuity Report

Blueprint Income (formerly Abaris) in The New York Times

This Sunday’s New York Times featured the article “Making Your Money Last as Long as You Do” by Mark Miller which quoted our CEO Matt Carey. The decline of traditional pension plans and increasing longevity present a significant challenge to Americans nearing and planning for retirement. The article outlines four strategies you can use to mitigate this risk, including the consideration of annuity as a part of your retirement strategy.

The New Blueprint Income Knowledge Center is Here

At Blueprint Income, we believe that education enables better decision making. We’ve been hard at work revamping the educational resources on our site to offer you all the tools and information you need to make a decision on an annuity. We’re excited to announce our new Knowledge Center, accessed here.

The new Knowledge Center includes all new online guides, downloadable PDF guides and FAQs written by our Head of Insurance, Lauren Minches, FSA. Lauren spent six years with New York Life focused on life and annuity products. We’re confident you won’t find more objective and educational materials on annuities out there.

Market Update

Annuity pricing declined in the first half of February on the back of lower 10 year Treasury bond yields in January. After a slight increase in Treasury yields towards the end of January, rates have once again declined to under 2.50%. We expect that most insurance carriers will hold rates steady or lower them slightly in March to reflect the 10 year Treasury performance thus far in February.
