Knighthead Annuity & Life Assurance announced the introduction of the first Fixed Index Annuity (FIA) available to global clients.

The Knighthead Annuity Safe Harbour™ FIA is designed to provide global clients with the opportunity to benefit from growth in the S&P 500®, while protecting their investment from market downturns.

Gary Dombowsky, Chief Executive Officer of Knighthead Annuity, commented: "Global clients continue to demand straight forward quality financial products from highly capitalized and rated insurers that meet their needs for capital preservation and competitive investment returns.

"In response, we are very pleased to provide our market with the first ever fixed index annuity as part of Knighthead Annuity’s existing suite of fixed annuity products."

The Safe Harbour™ FIA’s crediting rate is linked to the performance of the S&P 500® Index on an annual point to point basis, subject to a declared cap. All premium and interest earned is 100% protected from index losses.

Similar to other Knighthead Annuity products, the Safe Harbour™ FIA offers generous liquidity benefits, an enhanced death benefit, trust structure and annuitization features.
