Wraparound Annuity

An annuity contract allowing an investor some control over the underlying securities and assets. The funds in a wraparound annuity are tax-deferred until withdrawal. The IRS does not allow the purchase of a wraparound annuity if it is possible to purchase the same investments without a tax deferral. Therefore, a wraparound annuity is not a permitted tax avoidance vehicle.
