The AssetShield™ Series

The AssetShield series helps people grow retirement dollars on their own timeline with 5-, 7- and 10-year surrender charge schedules, and a performance rate rider that can boost accumulation, for a fee. 

FlexShield 10™ 

FlexShield 10 lets you opt into higher growth potential in exchange for accepting potential negative performance adjustments. But as with all of our annuities, the principal is protected from loss.
