A never-before-published masterpiece from science fiction’s greatest writer, rediscovered after more than half a century.
And when she finally agreed to marry him, he felt like the luckiest man in the universe.
She told him that her name wasn’t really Jinny Hamilton—it was Jinny Conrad, and she was the granddaughter of Richard Conrad, the wealthiest man in the solar system.
To Jinny’s surprise, and even his own, he turned down her generous offer and then set off on the mother of all benders.
When Joel Johnston first met Jinny Hamilton, it seemed like a dream come true.
His only goal in life was to become a composer, and he knew it would take years before he was earning enough to support a family.
And when Joel asked her what they were going to do for money, she gave him a most unexpected answer.
And woke up on a colony ship heading out into space, torn between regret over his rash decision and his determination to forget Jinny and make a life for himself among the stars.
At the Publisher’s request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.
And now that she was sure that Joel loved her for herself, not for her wealth, she revealed her family’s plans for him—he would be groomed for a place in the vast Conrad empire and sire a dynasty to carry on the family business.
He was on his way to succeeding when his plans–and the plans of billions of others–were shattered by a cosmic cataclysm so devastating it would take all of humanity’s strength and ingenuity just to survive.

I am not trying to present a balanced discussion of the advantages and disadvantages of variable annuities.
IF you choose to buy a variable annuity you should do so knowing all of the facts and, more importantly, the implications of those facts.
In this book, I will go into great detail explaining:1.
Alternatives and Better ChoicesFrom start to finish, you should be able to digest the following information in an hour or less.
Contrary to what some other advisors might believe, an informed investor is in the best interest of everyone.
One of the most highly touted benefits of variable annuities these days is the Living Benefit Rider that guarantees a lifetime income stream.
If you have been pitched a variable annuity and are particularly attracted to it because of this benefit then you can skip straight to my discussion of it on page 8.
But this report is designed to give you the other side of the variable annuity story.
Granted, many respected advisors firmly believe that variable annuities are good for consumers.
In the end, only you can decide what is best for your situation.
Once you’ve read this book, you will no longer be an easy mark for commission-hungry advisors.
Let me tell you right up-front that this book is biased.
My purpose in this book is to provide a contra-argument to the presentations you’ve likely already heard for these products by the financial services industry.
I do not like variable annuities and have not recommended them to a client for years.
Congratulations on taking the first step to protecting your retirement lifestyle: research and education.
These are often accompanied by a provision that most investors believe guarantees they will earn at least 6% or 7%.
You’ll quickly learn that the way you think it works may be considerably different from the way it actually does.
But if you don’t know all the facts, how can you make an informed decision?I’m going to give you facts you can’t readily find anywhere else, certainly not from the advisors that sell variable annuities.
Variable Annuities will provide an overview of all the relevant aspects of Variable Annuities (VA) products from an insurers perspective.
The market is of huge interest for US, European and Japanese insurers.
Some of these life insurance products are aimed at providing investment possibilities, such as with-profits endowments and annuity products.
All these problems can be addressed with so-called unit linked products at the expense of not providing investment guarantees any more.
While these products clearly address the issues mentioned above they typically do not provide any investment guarantees any more.
These products are new to Europe, except in some locations, where they have been widespread, e.
, Switzerland, and have generated a lot of interest as they can address the weaknesses of the traditional life products.
It will be a collection of contributions from several authors, co-ordinated in such a way that it covers all relevant areas with minimal overlap and a consistent level of detail.
For several hundred years, the insurance industry has offered a tremendous variety of life insurance products.
These products typically provide substantial investment guarantees, which is one of their main advantages, along with tax privileges and the fact that the assets are managed prudently.
The obvious step now is to build investment guarantees into unit-linked products this is what Variable Annuities provide.
New sales volumes are encouraging and we can witness the creation of a new product class, after the unit-linked products have entered the European market some decennia ago.
The success of these products can be traced back to the fact that together with the distribution model, directly approaching potential customers, these products are ideal for the clients that are either less sophisticated in planning for their retirement, or do not want to invest efforts in this planning or have avoided to address this topic at all.
But there are some clear disadvantages, which may not be relevant to all, but to some customers and the forces of competition lead companies to develop new products, which addressed these disadvantages, which are: The opaqueness of the investment process The lack of customer-control over the investment process The not sufficient profit sharing of returns above the investment guarantee and the opaqueness of this profit sharing mechanism Over time it has become apparent that there is an additional disadvantage from a company perspective, which is the substantial required risk capital these products generate due to the guarantees they provide.
Unit-linked products invest the savings part of the premiums of the policyholder transparently in investment vehicles, mostly internal or external funds and let the policyholder participate fully in the investment returns of these funds the upside as well as the downside.
Variable Annuities combine the advantages of traditional life insurance products long term investment guarantees, with the advantages of unit-linked products transparency of the investment and full upside participation.
This of course comes with a price: The policyholder has to pay a premium for the additional investment guarantee The shareholder has to manage the substantial risks generated by such products Nevertheless these products have had a tremendous success in the US and in the past few years we have seen these products being offered in the European markets.
This book will cover: * History of the VA market * Current VA market environment in North America, Europe, Australasia * Valuation of VA contracts * Risks and Risk Management of VAs * An analyst and rating agency s view of a VA writer * Insurance regulations governing VAs * Liquidity in global derivatives markets * Effectiveness of hedging programs during the market turm.
