AXA Equitable offers several variable annuity programs, such as Investment Edge, Retirement Cornerstone, the Accumulator Series and Structured Capital Strategies, according to AXA's website. These variable annuities provide options for market appreciation with future income and tax-deferred accumulation. Variable annuities are ideal investment options for people with higher risk appetites.
The Investment Edge variable investment option allows investors to defer current taxes, according to AXA. This program also offers death benefits and tax-efficient distributions that add an advantage to a diversified portfolio. AXA's Retirement Cornerstone is a tax-deferred program made up of two separate accounts. These accounts offer an investment opportunity with guaranteed income and death benefits. Investors who choose the Retirement Cornerstone can also take advantage of features that help them accumulate and protect future retirement income.
Structured Capital Strategies is a tax-deferred growth strategy that comes with a built-in investor protection feature, as AXA details. This program provides opportunities for investments to grow, and it features a set performance cap rate that offers partial downside protection. Investors in the market for a long-term retirement service can take advantage of the Accumulator Series, which allows members to invest for upside potential on a tax-deferred program. The Accumulator Series also offers guaranteed death benefits through additional riders that are available for an extra fee.
