There are probably a multitude of variable annuities that allow the
investor to invest solely in an energy fund. I cannot cite a specific
one off-hand, but international, real estate, emerging markets,
healthcare, biotech, and dozens of other sectors have their own sub-
accounts so it is foolish to think energy wouldn't also.

To pick a nit, insurance companies, which sell annuities, invest in
bond markets, not equities.
Any helpful feedback appreciated,
Why an annuity specifically and why do you want to avoid
diversification? Answer these and I suspect you'll get flooded with
feedback.

I think that generalization is wrong. There is no legal requirement
that insurance companies invest only in bonds. Berkshire Hathaway, run
by Warren Buffett, has invested heavily in equities.

I didn't say there is a legal requirement, it's just a generalization
and a generally true one at that. Berkshire Hathaway's insurance
subsidiary reports that 76.68% of its assets are in bonds and cash
while only 22.5% are in securities. I wouldn't consider that "heavily
invested". Perhaps you are mistaking the insurance company's assets
held in legal reserve and the total assets of the conglomerate. I was
referring to the former.

Using the vitalsuite database for insurance companies, a quick look
revealed that MetLife, John Hancock, Lincoln National/Jefferson Pilot,
ING, and Merrill Lynch all hold less than 7% of assets in securities
with most holding close to 2%. [I chose these companies becuase they
are large, well known, and I deal with them regularly so they quickly
came to mind]
