Before investing, investors should carefully consider the investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses of the variable annuity and its underlying investment options. The current contract prospectus and underlying fund prospectuses, which are contained in the same document, provide this and other information. Please contact your representative or the Company to obtain the prospectuses. Please read the prospectuses carefully before investing or sending money.
Diversification does not assure a profit or protect against loss in a declining market. Portfolios that have a greater percentage of alternatives may have greater risks, especially those including arbitrage, currency, leveraging, and commodities. This additional risk can offset the benefit of diversification.
Alternative investment strategies such as leveraging, arbitrage and commodities investing are subject to greater risks and volatility than more traditional investment offerings. Although asset allocation among different asset categories generally limits risk and exposure to any one category, the risk remains that management may favor an asset category that performs poorly relative to the other asset categories. The subaccounts expect to invest in positions that emphasize alternatives or nontraditional asset classes or investment strategies and, as a result, are subject to the risk factors of those asset classes. Some of those risks include general economic risk, geopolitical risk, commodity-price volatility, counterparty and settlement risk, currency risk, derivatives risk, emerging markets risk, foreign securities risk, high-yield bond exposure, noninvestment-grade bond exposure commonly known as "junk bonds," index investing risk, industry concentration risk, leveraging risk, market risk, prepayment risk, liquidity risk, real estate investment risk, sector risk, short sales risk, temporary defensive positions, and large cash positions.
The investment companies (subaccounts) offered in Elite Access are registered as investment companies under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (“1940 Act”), and their shares are registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. There are many differences among 1940 Act registered subaccounts and unregistered hedge funds, including but not limited to liquidity, restrictions on leverage and diversification, fund reporting and transparency, fees, and availability.
The standard death benefit is equal to contract value on the date of the claim and does not include any additional guarantees.
The latest income date allowed is age 95, which is the required age to annuitize or take a lump sum. Please see the prospectus for important information regarding the annuitization of a contract.
