The Cost of Cash

Will inflation erode your clients’ purchasing power?
Symetra’s fixed indexed annuities may be able to help.

Even over relatively short periods, the effect of inflation on the price of common goods and services can affect the longevity of your clients’ retirement savings. So help protect their purchasing power by trimming excess cash from their portfolios… and putting it to work. For example, Symetra’s fixed indexed deferred annuities may help preserve more long-term buying power. Use the following “Cost of Cash” resources to learn more.

Inflation: The Quiet Erosion.

Inflation is the rate at which the general level of prices for goods and services is rising, and subsequently, purchasing power is falling. When inflation rises, every dollar buys a smaller percentage of a good.

Could your cash be doing more?
