  • Great American Life Offers Enhanced Index Frontier Annuities in Wake of Unprecedented Market Volatility

    May 13, 2020 by Great American Life

    CINCINNATI–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Great American Life® enhanced its Index Frontier® registered index-linked annuities with the addition of three new indexed strategies that provide varying levels of protection against loss:

    • S&P® 500 10% Buffer Indexed Strategy
    • iShares MSCI EAFE Conserve Indexed Strategy with 0% Floor
    • iShares MSCI EAFE Growth Indexed Strategy with -10% Floor

    The Index Frontier annuities give consumers the opportunity to grow their money in rising markets, while providing a level of protection in down markets. The new Buffer strategy, which protects against the first 10% of losses at the end of each one-year term, gives consumers greater flexibility in how they choose to protect their money – and with the ability to reallocate among strategies at the end of each term, they can adjust their exposure in alignment with different market cycles.

    Additionally, the new iShares MSCI EAFE indexed strategies offer exposure to a new sector – developed international markets. Consumers can choose between the Conserve strategy, which offers complete downside protection, and the Growth strategy, which protects against losses in excess of 10%.

    These new strategies are in addition to the Index Frontier’s current offerings, which provide exposure to the broad-based market, commodities and the real estate sector.

    Joe Maringer, SVP, National Sales Manager, Great American Life, commented on the timeliness of the new indexed strategies given recent market volatility.

    “With the severe market volatility experienced in early 2020, we recognize once again how important it is to have some level of protection in a financial portfolio. We are incredibly pleased to now offer our distributors and their clients buffer and floor options, which allow them to consider different market environments when allocating among strategies,” said Maringer. “To provide even more value, Index Frontier annuities offer a return of premium death benefit. Plus, clients don’t have to pay mortality and expense fees or other administrative charges, demonstrating Great American Life’s commitment to offering simple, transparent products that cater to our customers’ needs.”
