This is one of the first variable annuities to offer alternative investments.
Alternatives mean access to absolute return funds and other non conventional investment fund offerings.
Their list of alternatives include:
- Absolute return
- Convertible arbitrage
- Emerging markets debt
- Global infrastructure
- Global real estate
- Income generation through covered calls
- Listed private equity
- Managed futures
- Market neutral
- Merger arbitrage
- Natural resources
Very interested and I think this will prove to be a very popular variable annuity.
