The best of both worlds for today's investor
Balancing your need for growth and protection is a challenge for any financial plan. But with an Amplify 2.0 annuity — you can have the best of both worlds.
3 simple choices to add Amplify 2.0 to your financial plan
Pick your level of protection
With 10% and 20% buffer levels, consider how much risk you're comfortable with, how much time you have to invest and how the level of protection may affect growth potential.
How does a buffer impact my investment?
An Amplify 2.0 annuity can provide the best of both worlds — the opportunity to capture gains when markets are up plus a level of protection when they're down. The level of protection is known as a buffer.
Athene Amplify 2.0 is designed to be a long-term investment product used to help provide income for retirement. It is not suitable as a short-term investment. There is a risk of substantial loss of principal and related earnings depending on the Segment Option(s) to which you allocate your Purchase Payment. Due to negative index performance, Segment Credits may be negative after application of the Buffer Rate and you agree to bear the portion of loss that exceeds that rate.
Under current tax law, the Internal Revenue Code already provides tax deferral to qualified money, so there is no additional tax benefit obtained by funding a qualified contract, such as an IRA, with an annuity; consider the other benefits provided by an annuity, such as lifetime income and a Death Benefit.
Choose your term period
Amplify is a 6-year annuity that offers several term periods. Each term period comes with specific advantages you should carefully weigh as you decide.
- 1-year term period
Reset your protection level and realize earnings (if any) on an annual basis.
- 2-year term period
Extend your term period to two-year intervals and gain greater growth potential.
- 6-year term period
Reap the reward of waiting with rates that may produce greater growth potential. This term period is only available in the first Contract Year.
While longer terms typically offer higher rates, shorter terms may help manage market fluctuations better.
Select an index option
You can allocate your money to one or more available index options to help you pursue maximum performance in today's ever-changing world.
