Annuities - are they good for the investor or the advisor? I have a roll-over IRA from an pension plan and my advisor with UBS want me to invest in American Legacy. I hear annuities are a great alternative to CDs - tax deferral, competitive interest rates, safety rated A+, probate avoidance and other advantages. It would only be a part of my investments, from a third to a quarter. Does it make sense inside of an IRA or is it better for UBS than it is for me?
