Benefits of Pivot

Investment strategy

Principal® Pivot Series is a flexible investment product that allows clients to focus on growing their retirement savings. They can personalize their own investment strategy, including a plan that’s 100% equities. And because Pivot is a lower-cost annuity, your clients can design a well-balanced portfolio for a total annual cost under 2.00%.


If their goals change, so can their fund choices. There are no extra fees or taxes just for moving money between subaccounts. Clients have over 80 quality investment funds to choose from and can reallocate at any time with no extra cost.

Tax-deferral

Money put into Principal® Pivot Series is a tax-deferred investment. It allows clients to avoid paying taxes on their account’s investment gains until they withdraw money. The money saved by deferring taxes is reinvested, earning your client even more. Gains made within the account are reinvested and also tax-deferred, which compounds their growth. Tax-deferral investments can have a powerful impact on your client’s investment gains and future income.

Financial legacy

Principal® Pivot Series offers both standard and optional enhanced death benefits, none of which require underwriting. Plus, all proceeds pass outside of probate.1

 

Clients can further personalize a legacy plan by setting up a trust-owned annuity. When used correctly, trust-owned annuities can provide income for loved ones, and maximize wealth across generations. Both grantor and non-grantor trusts can be utilized with Pivot.

 

And if Pivot is set up with nonqualified money, it can still be used as an inherited IRA stretch, allowing another way to create generational wealth.

Secure future guaranteed income

A lifecycle product like Principal® Pivot Series allows your client to adapt their investment strategy as their life changes. That includes moving into retirement. Pivot’s Flexible Pension Builder Rider offers a seamless transfer from accumulation to income. At no additional cost, it allows clients to transfer money from their investments into a stream of guaranteed income. Three transfer options are available—your client can choose which one works best for them.
