Annuities are insurance products that resemble investments, but never lose money. They're a long term product that earn interest based on the index of your choice over the course of several years.

Our A+ rated annuity products require a $20,000 minimum initial investment and many have no upfront or recurring fees. After applying, new policies can go into effect in as little as 3 days, and you can continue to watch your investments grow through your online portal.

During market declines, annuities are protected.
Annuities track performance in periods of growth.

What our clients
are saying

I have been managing my own portfolio for some time...I came across Revise while doing research and the annuities they provide are very compelling. Have a look at the website and get in touch. The team is very professional and will help you on your journey.

Peter F.


It was a breeze working with Revise Annuity. Planning something complicated as retirement seemed uncomplicated for the first time, and we are pretty happy about that! Transparent and prompt service makes this an easy review, and easier recommendation.

Ramin A.


Nick and his team are backed by many years of experience...Not some part time "expert" who just acts like a broker for various annuity companies....I highly recommend using their team for retirement planning

Satya B.


A Chicago friend turned me onto Revise to rollover my 401k...The annuity return is expected to outperform the previous portfolio. Revise really made the entire process seamless. Can't recommend enough.

Stephen B.


The process was straight forward and the team did a great job of "de-mystifying" the entire process. There are many types of annuities out there...The team at Revise cuts through fat and provides meaningful analysis that helped me (and hopefully you too) make intelligent money moves.

Our Expertise

Equity indexed annuities

Equity indexed annuities, also known as fixed indexed annuities, are a unique type of insurance product that earns interest based on the annual returns of the S&P 500 or another chosen index. Unlike a traditional investment portfolio, these annuities offer 100% principal protection. This means that, while you benefit from growth and inflation protection, you will never lose your initial investment.

This protection is achieved through the construction of complex derivative portfolios that support your annuity. Since this strategy is managed by an insurance company using a pooled capital approach, the associated fees are low and transparent.

to look over again in order to correct or improve.

Many haven’t made the right choice about their retirement – but you can change it now with Revise.

Over half of Americans will retire without sufficient income to support their lifestyle. Mismanaged 401(k)s, brokerage losses, erosion by inflation, and lack of early planning are the culprits. You're more likely to outlive your savings today than ever before in history. Annuities can help.

  • What is an annuity?

    An annuity is a principal-protected insurance product that accumulates tax-deferred and pays an optional income upon retirement. It's returns are tied to your favorite index, like the S&P500, but with zero risk.

  • What does it cost?

    An annuity is purchased with an initial premium alongside optional contributions during your working years (pay-in period), then pays an optional income for the rest of your life (pay-out period) with zero risk and market-tied returns.

  • When should I start?

    The earlier you start paying into an annuity - the more interest compounds and accumulates inside your policy - more cash means a higher quality of life when you decide to retire.

How can I fund my annuity?

This depends on if you're funding with pre-or-post-tax dollars.

Which annuity is
right for you?

Our annuities are either optimized
for growth or income.

Can’t I just invest in the stock market?

  • A direct investment in the stock market, or even an index like the S&P500 can lose money and leave you struggling later in life. Annuities are 100% principal protected but still participate in stock market returns.

  • Managing your own portfolio is time-consuming, error-prone, and even fancy money managers (who rarely outperform the market) eat away at your nest egg. Fixed annuities are low-fee product.

  • The average investor misses out on compounding by incorrectly rebalancing and reinvesting in their own portfolios - so you have far less during retirement. Annuities put this on autopilot.

  • Annuities never lose money but track your favorite index, like the S&P500 or Nasdaq-100, so investing in your retirement isn't a headache. Set it up once, and get back to living.

Here’s a simplified example of a 35 year old who wants to retire in 30 years with at least $400,000 starting with a single $50,000 premium payment.
