  • Cash Refund Annuity

    Cash refund annuities are an answer to the increasing demand for flexibility, along with the security of the investment. With this annuity product, you will get the higher age return income of a life annuity, but with the bonus of being able to cash out if you wish. Life annuities of course, give better returns the older you are but as you receive the same income as a non cashable annuity, they’re certainly worth investigating.
