Average investors hold their equity mutual funds slightly over three years, which significantly hinders their long-term performance. This study found that there is a statistically significant difference between the investor returns of index annuities and the investor returns of equity mutual funds for six distinct time periods starting from 1997-2011 and ending with 2002-2011. Additionally, the risk-adjusted investor returns of index annuities outperformed the risk-adjusted investor returns of equity mutual funds for the same time frame.
