  • Security Benefit Debuts Two New Indexes in Total Value AnnuityLeading Fixed Index Annuity Expands Investment Options

    October 24, 2017 by Globe Newswire

    TOPEKA, Kan., Oct. 23, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Security Benefit Life Insurance Company, a leader in the U.S. retirement savings market, announced today the addition of four new index accounts to the Total Value Annuity: one and two year accounts based on the S&P 500® Low Volatility Daily Risk Control 5% Index (S&P 500® Low Vol RC 5%), and one and two year accounts based on the S&P Multi-Asset Risk Control (MARC) 5% Index (S&P MARC 5%). They are available to new purchasers as of today, and they will be available to existing contract owners on contract anniversaries with an index term date beginning on or after October 23, 2017.   

    “Since its inception, the Total Value Annuity has offered consumers growth potential along with the ability to create a guaranteed stream of lifetime income, or to leave a legacy for others,” said Doug Wolff, Security Benefit’s President. “Adding new index accounts gives financial professionals more options to diversify client portfolios and help clients reach their retirement-planning goals.”

    With the additions, the Total Value Annuity now offers nine distinct index interest crediting options and one fixed account option.

    The S&P 500® Low Vol RC 5% Index represents a portfolio that combines the S&P 500® Low Volatility Index with an interest-accruing cash component. Stocks in the index are weighted according to their volatility, with the least volatile stocks receiving the highest weights. On a daily basis, the S&P 500® Low Vol RC 5% is dynamically rebalanced between the stock component and the cash component to achieve a target annualized volatility of five percent.

    The S&P MARC 5% Index is designed to track the performance of a risk-weighted portfolio consisting of three asset classes — equities, commodities and fixed income — represented by three component indices: the S&P 500® Excess Return Index, the S&P GSCI Gold Excess Return Index and the S&P 10-Year U.S. Treasury Note Futures Excess Return Index. S&P MARC 5% is dynamically rebalanced between the three indices and the cash component to target a five percent level of volatility.  

    For more information about the Total Value Annuity, including the S&P 500® Low Volatility Daily Risk Control 5% Index and the S&P Multi-Asset Risk Control (MARC) 5% Index, please call Security Benefit at 800-888-2461.
