Fixed annuities are for conservative investors who want safety, security, and guarantees.
You will preserve your principal and earn a fixed rate of return.
You might hear fixed annuities also called CD-like annuities or multiple-year guarantee annuities (MYGA's).
If you are sensitive to loss and don't want to lose a penny, a fixed annuity might be a good fit for some of your savings.
