Annuities and your portfolio at J.P. Morgan

Investments are often unpredictable, and this uncertainty can affect how you plan for the future. At J.P. Morgan, we can help you mitigate investment and life event risk through annuities, which have the unique potential to generate an income stream that can last a lifetime. They provide you with a degree of protection and certain guarantees that can help you secure your future and realize the full potential of your wealth.

What is an annuity and how can it help your complex investment portfolio?

For a majority of individuals, annuities serve as a tool to grow assets tax-deferred over the long term, providing guaranteed retirement income. But for those with significant wealth, an annuity has unique features that can help enhance a multi-faceted wealth plan.

J,P. Morgan Chase and its affiliates do not provide tax, legal or accounting advice. This material has been prepared for informational purposes only, and is not intended to provide, and should not be relied on for, tax, legal or accounting advice. You should consult your own tax, legal and accounting professionals before engaging in any transaction.

All annuity contract and rider guarantees, or annuity payout rates, are backed by the claims-paying ability of the issuing insurance company.

Types of annuities

There are various annuity options depending on your situation and goals. We can help you select the product that works in harmony with your portfolio and helps you achieve the outcomes you desire.


Fixed annuities

Fixed annuities provide a fixed rate of return and
guaranteed principal protection.


Indexed annuities

Investment growth is based on performance of a selected index. These provide some degree of market exposure with principal protection in the event of market losses.


Variable annuities

The annuity's value tracks the performance of the
investments you select, providing market exposure along
with growth potential.


Investment-only variable annuities

Just like variable annuities, the value of the annuity will rise and fall with the performance of the investments you select, but with investment-only variable annuities, your options may be more differentiated.

Important Information

Investing involves market risk, including possible loss of principal, and there is no guarantee that investment objectives will be achieved. Past performance is not a guarantee of future results.

Asset allocation/diversification does not guarantee a profit or protect against a loss.

Withdrawals of taxable amounts are subject to ordinary income tax and, if taken prior to age 59½, an additional 10% federal tax may apply. Keep in mind, for retirement plans and accounts (such as IRAs and 401(k)s), an annuity provides no additional tax-deferred benefit beyond that provided by the retirement plan or account itself.

Annuities are long-term investments designed to help meet retirement needs. They are a contractual agreement where a client makes payments to an insurance company, which, in turn, agrees to pay out an income stream or a lump sum amount at a later date. Annuities typically offer (1) tax-deferred treatment of earnings; (2) a death benefit; and (3) annuity payout options that can provide guaranteed income for life. There are contract limitations, fees and charges associated with annuities which include, but are not limited to mortality and expense risk charges, sales and surrender charges, administrative fees, charges for any optional benefits, and charges for the underlying investment options in variable annuities. In addition, variable annuity contract values will fluctuate and are subject to market risk including the possible loss of principal. It is possible to lose money in a variable annuity purchased with an optional protection rider. Variable annuities have holding periods, limitations, withdrawal charges, exclusions, termination provisions, and terms for keeping them in force. Optional riders may be irrevocable and expire without use. Early withdrawals may be subject to surrender charges, and taxed as ordinary income, and in addition, if taken prior to age 59½ an additional 10% federal tax may apply. Withdrawals reduce annuity contract benefit, values and optional guarantees in an amount that may be more than the actual withdrawal.

It is important to note that indexed annuity contracts commonly allow the insurance company to change the participation rate, cap rate, and/or spread rate on a periodic — such as annual — basis. Such changes could adversely affect your return. No single index crediting method will provide the highest interest credit in all market scenarios. The guaranteed minimum cap rate/maximum spread rate are established when the annuity is purchased and disclosed in the annuity contract.
