Ben Bernanke of the Federal Reserve is clearly pointing to higher interest rates in the future. Probably not a surprise as he would have trouble taking interest rates any lower than they have been for the last few years.
Quantitative easing is coming to an end and now the conservative investor, who has traditionally relied on bonds as a safe money alternative, faces a quandary. How to safely make money in a rising interest rate environment?
This educational video created by Rob Brinkman explains (in a very detailed, yet easy to understand way) how a fixed index annuity can be a smart alternative to bond funds given our current rising interest rate environment.
