bes whether the company or the contract holder, respectively, bears the investment risk of the assets supporting the contract. This also determines the manner in which the company generates earnings, either as investment spreads for fixed annuities or asset-based fees for variable annuities. The company offers qualified (annuities sold in connection with tax-favored retirement arrangements) and non-qualified annuities to individuals, mainly through financial institutions and broker-dealers. Products Fixed Annuities The company offers fixed single premium deferred annuities that require a premium payment at time of issue, offer an accumulation period and provide an annuity payout period. Its fixed annuities include both traditional fixed-rate and fixed indexed annuity products. The company’s fixed annuity contracts are supported by its general account, and interest is generally credited on a tax-deferred basis to the contract owner. The company’s Custom products offer a five or seven-year surrender charge period and a choice of three-, five-, or seven-year initial guaranteed interest rate periods. Its Select products have a guaranteed credited rate throughout the surrender charge period. The company’s fixed indexed annuity products provide contract holders a choice of a traditional fixed-rate account and one or more indexed accounts. Indexed accounts allow the contract holder to elect an interest rate linked to the performance of an index, such as the company’s major option, the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index (S&P 500). A majority of the company’s fixed indexed annuity products also have a market value adjustment (MVA) feature. The MVA feature provides for an adjustment to amounts withdrawn or surrendered from the annuity contract. Variable Annuities The company offers variable deferred annuities that allow the contract holder to allocate their premium to separate account subaccounts that each invest in shares of a designated mutual fund. Like a fixed annuity, a variable annuity has an accumulation period and a payout period. There is no guaranteed minimum rate of return for these investments, however, and the contract owner bears the entire risk associated with the performance of the subaccounts, subject to any guaranteed minimum death benefit (GMDB). The majority of the company’s GMDB risk on its variable annuities is reinsured. Distribution The company distributes its deferred annuities primarily through financial institutions and broker-dealers, with sales and marketing support provided by its wholesalers. Income Annuities The company offers retail immediate annuities that guarantee a series of payments that continue either for a certain number of years or for the remainder of an annuitant’s life. The segment also has a portion of reserves, representing longer term liabilities that are supported by equity and equity-like investments. Products Immediate Annuities Immediate annuities provide for contractually guaranteed payments that typically begin within one year of issue. In exchange for a single premium, immediate annuities provide a fixed amount of income for either a defined number of years, the annuitant’s lifetime or the longer of the two. The company offers a liquidity feature on certain products that allows the contract holder to periodically reduce a portion of the future payments in exchange for a present value lump sum. The company also offers a feature that allows beneficiaries to convert remaining non-life contingent benefits to a lump sum after the death of the annuitant. Structured Settlements The company offers funding services to existing payees whose financial circumstances may have changed from the time they originally received a structured settlement. Its funding services provide a lump sum payment to replace future benefit payments. Distribution The company distributes its single premium immediate annuities primarily through financial institutions, brokerage general agencies and broker-dealers, with sales and marketing support provided by its wholesalers.
