Index-linked Annuities and Insurance Products

Providing opportunities for transparent investment in retirement and life insurance products

This Solution Helps

  • Financial Advisors
  • Insurance Companies

When considering retirement or life insurance investments, it is essential to have choices based on liquidity, reputation, and performance. Nasdaq has been creating transparent, market-leading indexes for nearly 50 years, most designed to protect or help minimize downside risk while offering upside potential. Annuities and insurance products linked to our indexes can provide opportunities for financial advisors to access retirement and life insurance products using our transparent, objective methodologies—enabling carriers, distributors, and agents to clearly convey index performance expectations to clients.

There are more than 150 Annuity and Indexed Life products linked to Nasdaq Indexes, the most prominent being our flagship Nasdaq-100 (NDX) Index. 

The Nasdaq-100 Index (NDX) is our primary benchmark for Indexed Annuity and Index Life Products. With a proven history of performance, the Nasdaq-100 features some of the world’s most beloved and innovative companies, such as Amazon, Amgen, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, and Starbucks.
