  • Legacy Marketing Group® Introduces New FUSION Strategy, Fusing Together Annual Crediting and Multi-Year Upside

    June 6, 2019 by Legacy Marketing Group

    PETALUMA, CA, June 5, 2019—Legacy Marketing Group® is excited to announce the availability of a new, game-changing interest crediting strategy on its exclusive line of fixed indexed annuities from “A” rated* Americo Financial Life and Annuity Insurance Company. The new strategy—the FUSION StrategySM**—fuses the best parts of an annual point-to-point strategy and a multi-year strategy.

    The five-year FUSION StrategySM credits at the end of each of the first four years if the index is above the starting index value, even slightly, plus it credits uncapped participation in five-year index performance at the end of Year 5.

    “By providing consumers with the opportunity for yearly growth and participation in five years of index gains, the FUSION StrategySM truly offers the best of all worlds: the certainty of crediting rates that are locked in for five years and opportunity for multi-year upside,” said Preston Pitts, Legacy Marketing Group® President.

    Interest credited to the FUSION StrategySM is based on the performance of the new SG Columbia Adaptive Risk Allocation Index. The Index—the result of a powerful collaboration between Société Générale and Columbia Threadneedle Investments—was designed to seek consistent returns by simultaneously employing three basic principles:

    1. Globally diverse investments that help drive consistency in returns and reduce risk.
    2. A market state model that automatically adjusts allocation based on current market conditions.
    3. A 5% volatility control mechanism that provides stability during periods of high volatility.

    To learn more, visit www.sg-columbia-index.com.

    The new FUSION StrategySM, along with a one-year point-to-point participation rate strategy based on the SG Columbia Adaptive Risk Allocation Index, are available with Legacy’s exclusive LibertyMarkSM 10-year fixed indexed annuities and ClassicMark® Series FIAs in most states.

    Boosted by the addition of the FUSION StrategySM, both LibertyMarkSM and ClassicMark® offer strong opportunities for accumulation with:

    • Optional upfront, fully credited bonus—7% (6% in CA) on LibertyMarkSM 10-year products and up to 4% on ClassicMark®.
    • A choice of nine interest crediting strategies, including four no-cap participation rate strategies.
    • An industry-leading minimum guarantee of 1.60% on 100% of premium, less surrender charges.

    In addition, the optional Heritage MaximizerSM† enhanced death benefit provides a death benefit of 130% of the total accumulation value for 0.30% annually.††

    With so many benefits, including the new FUSION StrategySM, bundled into its Americo product line, Legacy offers some of the industry’s strongest accumulation FIAs—available only through agents contracted with Legacy and Americo!

    The SG Columbia Adaptive Risk Allocation Index (“Index”) is the exclusive property of SG Americas Securities, LLC (together with its affiliates, “SG”). SG has contracted with Solactive AG to maintain and calculate the Index. “SG Americas Securities, LLC”, “SGAS”, “Société Générale”, “SG”, “SG Columbia Adaptive Risk Allocation Index”, et al. (collectively, the “SG Marks”) are trademarks or service marks of SG. SG has licensed use of the Index and the SG Marks to Americo Financial Life and Annuity Insurance Company (“Americo”) for use in fixed indexed annuities. SG has licensed use of certain marks from Columbia Management Investment Advisers, LLC or its affiliates (collectively, “Columbia Management”) and sub-licensed use to Americo. Neither SG, Solactive AG, Columbia Management nor any other third-party licensor has been authorized to act as an agent of Americo or has in any way sponsored, endorsed, sold, promoted, structured or priced any fixed indexed annuity or provided investment advice to Americo. Such parties make no representation regarding the advisability of purchasing, selling, or holding product linked to the Index, including Fixed Indexed Annuity and shall not be liable for any related loss or payment thereof. Obligations to make payments under the fixed indexed annuities are solely the obligation of Americo. Neither Americo nor SG are obligated to invest annuity payments in the components of the Index. The Index levels are net of a 0.50% annual maintenance fee, which may be as high as 0.75% due to the potential leverage of up to 150% in the Index, calculated and deducted daily. The Index also deducts fees to cover rebalancing, replication, and other costs. The total amount of these fees is unpredictable and depends on a number of factors. These fees and costs will reduce the potential positive change in the Index and increase the potential negative change in the Index. While the volatility control applied by the Index may result in less fluctuation in rates of return as compared to indices without volatility controls, it may also reduce the overall rate of return as compared to products not subject to volatility controls.

    Columbia Threadneedle Investments is the global brand name of the Columbia and Threadneedle group of companies.
