Annuity maximization is an efficient asset repositioning strategy that can be used for annuities where all or a portion are earmarked to be left to beneficiaries. Or for annuities that have been underperforming. By repositioning funds from the annuity into life insurance the owner of the annuity can ensure that there is a pool of tax free funds at death to offset any income tax that might be due at transfer. In addition to this if the annuity is underperforming liquidating it to fund the life insurance policy can result in a significantly larger amount of money to be transferred to the next generation.
