Annuities are not designed to keep up with the market

What is your definition of competitive returns?  Annuities are not designed to compete with market returns.  That being said, Fixed Indexed Annuities might, I said might be able to do that.

If you want an annuity to keep up with market gains during a long term bull market like we saw from 1982 thru 1999 you won’t, but if you are looking to keep up with a market situation like we’ve seen since 2000 it could.  I said could.

Annuities are not designed to keep up with the market, but they might.  Annuities should be utilized for what they will do not what they might do.

I won’t address Variable Annuities, I am not securities licensed so can’t answer that end of the equation.
