Performance Lock Resource Center

Performance Lock allows clients to protect against potential market declines and lock in performance for any Index-Linked Segment Option during the term. Used in combination with a buffer, it gives an added level of control in volatile markets — providing greater peace of mind and helping mitigate future risk.

This graph depicts how Performance Lock works.   There are 3 images that are side by side and labeled one, two and three.  The image on the left is labeled with number 1 and shows a line with many small ups and downs, but moving up as it moves from left to right. This represents rising growth in a market-based index.   The center image is labeled with number 2 and shows the symbol of a lock followed by a steady line that rises slightly from left to right. This represents that gains have been locked in and that funds have moved to the current 1-year Fixed Segment Option. Funds would then earn interest at the existing declared Annual Interest Rate for the remainder of the one-year term.    The right image is labeled with number 3 and shows a line with many small ups and downs, but moving up as it moves from left to right. This represents a new term and a choice to reallocate back to an option with growth based on a market-based index.

Milestone Lock Resource Center

Milestone Lock is a “set it and forget it” option that can help clients optimize performance by allowing them keep more of what they’ve earned when the index reaches certain milestones. Milestone Lock also helps manage risk by providing an extra level of protection because the buffer resets as milestones are reached.


Performance Blend Resource Center

Performance Blend is an “all-in-one” option that leverages the power of diversification with the benefit of hindsight. It is the only strategy that allocates to three well-known indexes based on their actual performance at the end of a 6-year term.
