retirement solutions and educational resources for industry professionals and
their clients, will serve as a sponsor for the fourth annual Innovative
Alternative Strategies conference in Denver on July 22-23. Hosted by Financial

alternatives — impact investing, ’40 Act mutual funds, liquid alternatives,
real assets and managed futures, among others.

“At Jackson, we’re dedicated to providing financial advisors with the
education, tools and one-on-one support they need in order to utilize
alternative investments within their clients’ portfolios,” said Clifford Jack,
executive vice president and head of retail at Jackson. “Our commitment to the
alts space is unwavering — we recognize the critical need to educate advisors,
and we’re proud to serve as a resource in this capacity.”

Gabriel Burstein, head of Investment Strategy in Asset Management for Curian
Capital^®, LLC, Jackson’s asset management subsidiary, will be serving on the
“’40 Act Funds Explained” conference panel. Burstein will analyze the historic
performance of 1940 Act alternative mutual funds across the spectrum of
alternative strategies.

The conference includes a variety of keynote presentations and breakout
sessions over two days, many of which qualify for Certified Financial Planner
(CFP^®) Board of Standards Continuing Education (CE) credit, as well as CE
credit toward the CIMA^®, CIMC^® and CPWA^® certifications. For more

Before investing, investors should carefully consider the investment
objectives, risks, charges and expenses of the product, including its
underlying investment options. The current prospectus provides this and other
important information. Please contact your representative or the Company to
obtain the prospectus(es). Please read the prospectus(es) carefully before
investing or sending money.

Annuities are issued by Jackson National Life Insurance Company (Home Office:
Lansing, Michigan) and Jackson National Life Insurance Company of New York
(Home Office: Purchase, New York). Variable products are distributed by
Jackson National Life Distributors LLC. May not be available in all states and
state variations may apply. These contracts have limitations and restrictions,
including possible withdrawal charges, recapture charges and excess interest
adjustments. Contact your representative or the Company for more information.

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.
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. 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, 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.

Please remember that a Jackson annuity is intended to be a long-term,
tax-deferred vehicle for retirement. An annuity's earnings are taxable as
ordinary income when withdrawn and, if taken before age 59 1/2, may be subject
to a 10% federal tax penalty. Variable annuities involve investment risks and
may lose value.

The following cautionary statement is included to make applicable and take
advantage of the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation
Reform Act of 1995 for any forward-looking statements made by, or on behalf
of, the Company. Forward-looking statements include statements concerning
plans, objectives, goals, strategies, future events or performance, and
underlying assumptions and other statements which are other than statements of
historical facts. However, as with any projection or forecast, forward-looking
statements are inherently susceptible to a number of risks and uncertainties
and actual results and events could differ materially from those currently
being anticipated as reflected in such forward-looking statements. There can
be no assurance that management’s expectations, beliefs or projections will
result or be achieved or accomplished.
