Today on the radio one guy called in and proposed a way to beat 10 year
index annuity. I think it makes sense.
Put 60% of your money in a 5.5% 10-year CD, it will become 100% after 10
years.
Put the rest 40% into index ETF. It will become something above 0% after
10 years.
Therefore, the total is guaranteed to be above 100%. The benefit is that
you'll save a bunch on fees and get the same benefit of an annuity.

Are you kidding? Say if index averages 7% per year,
ETF beats 0%, your CD underperform.

Please read the definition of index annuity.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Equity-indexed_annuity
"An equity index annuity in the United States is a type of tax-deferred
annuity whose credited interest is linked to an equity index --SEE EXAMPLE
HERE>>[1], and typically uses the S&P 500 or international index. It
guarantees a minimum interest rate (typically between 1% and 3%) if held to
the end of the surrender term and protects against a loss of principal. An
equity index annuity is a contract w

where to get the 5.5% 10-year CD? Put your money in Money market and wait
for 5
years?

I-bond is 5.64%, and has some sweet tax benefit as well. 5% is not hard to
find.

Why not 4.65% 5-year CD now and another 5-year CD later?
Actually according to the radio host (Ray Lucia), the scheme that guy
proposed is exactly what index annuities do. They just charge you fee
for doing that because they need to feed themselves and also need to
buy insurance (so they can get a good name and attract more people to
buy).

Other than the fees, they can also provide you cash in regular intervals due
to their pool of money. Your home made "annuity" may have the same return
for 10 years, it does not have the flexibility of getting cash every month
if you throw 60% in a 5 year CD. You cannot take any of that part out during
the 5 years without losing the interest.

But most CDs are liquid ah. You can always early withdraw with some
penalty.
For complete liquidity, one has to go with a savings account, which
usually is 1% lower in interest rate, //sigh... In that case, 70%
money needs to be in the savings, 30% in equity.

I rethought about it, my way of thinking was wrong.
The liquidity should come from the equity part, not the CD part.
If one takes cash out of the CD part, it cannot guarantee the yield
after 10 years would be above 0%.
Since equity part is always liquid, there should not be a problem
taking cash out. The only limit is the amount that one can take.
The more one takes out, the more the portfolio is like a CD.
Also, for tax consideration, it's better not to cash out anything
in the first 12 months

not sure I understand. Why do you consider only index annuity? I think some good annuity can average about 5-6% (guaranted). If the 40% equity is gone (or a big loss), how can you beat the 100% with 5-
6% return?
