Among the factors that could drive actual results toward the upper end, middle or lower end of the guidance range are: duration of prolonged low interest rates, and timing and magnitude of changes in interest rates; benefits Division loss ratio; mortality experience; timing and levels of life and annuity sales; persistency of the inforce book of business; amount of prepayments in the investment portfolio; amount of issuance and yields on commercial mortgage loans; returns on alternative investments; and capital management actions.
