Whole-life policies, a type of permanent insurance, combine life coverage with an investment fund.
Life Insurance-Universal Life Policy
Universal life is a type of permanent insurance policy that combines term insurance with a money market-type investment that pays a market rate of return. To get a higher return, these policies generally don't guarantee a certain rate.
Life Insurance-Term Policy (10 year, up to 30 years)

Annuity-Growth Without Risk
Indexed Annuity is a special class of annuities that yields returns on your contributions based on a specified equity-based index. These annuities can be purchased from an insurance company, and similar to other types of annuities, the terms and conditions associated with payouts will depend on what is stated in the original annuity contract.
