The equity-index annuities market is likely to easily find capacity to replace Aviva if the second largest factor in the equity-index annuity market decides to shrink or change its role in the U.S. insurance marketplace.

Benefitting from the tail winds generated by low interest rates and concerns about the stock market, comments by industry officials and even the data buttress the view that the EIA space is robust given current economic conditions.

Data compiled by LIMRA appears to confirm Marrion’s view.

Over the past few years, indexed annuity sales have been strong, mainly because of the unique economic environment that exists,” said Catherine Theroux, LIMRA spokesperson.
