Stony,

I can tell annuities won't work for you. Assuming you can manage your investments well, how do you avoid and defer the tax liability incurred on investments that are not strictly growth?

Personally, I think the benefits of tax deferral are worth a low expense ratio, especially when money is invested in aggressive funds. Not every annuity can offer both.

Are there other options?
