Class 11 Outline Business Finance 640 Winter Quarter, 2008 This class has two parts. The first part reviews the basic characteristics of individual annuities. Concepts stressed include the annuity principle and the different types of annuities. For ease of understanding, we classify annuities into three categories: (1) fixed annuity, (2) variable annuity, and (3) equity-indexed annuity. The second part discusses the different types of IRAs. In this context, we will compare the eligibility requirements, annual contribution, income taxation and other features of Traditional IRA’s with Roth IRA. I.

Pays periodic income payments that are guaranteed and fixed in amount b. During the accumulation period prior to retirement, premiums are credited with interest c. The guaranteed rate is the minimum interest rate that will be credited to the fixed annuity d. The current rate is based on current market conditions, and is guaranteed only for a limited period e.
