By: Mark D.Milbrod, CLU, CLTC, Sales Vice President Very often, annuities get some bad press. One firm in particular even went as far to proclaim that they “HATE” annuities.

The nature of the study was to determine what services this group expected vs. the services received from Advisory/Wealth Management firms. The results were not surprising.
