Credit Suisse Momentum Index

The Credit Suisse Momentum Index is a rules-based global multi-asset index that implements a unique and flexible momentum-driven strategy. Credit Suisse offers outstanding Interest crediting Opportunities

  • A 50/50 Split between the Credit Suisse 1-Year and 2-Year Participation Rate Interest Rate Crediting Options, without the selection of the Rate Enhancement Rider, results in the following illustrated Historical Returns:
    • Most Recent 10 years: 6.65% (Geometric Mean Annual Effective Rate)
    • Most Favorable 10 years: 7.83% (Geometric Mean Annual Effective Rate)
    • Least Favorable 10 years: 5.32% (Geometric Mean Annual Effective Rate)
  • A 50/50 Split between the Credit Suisse 1-Year and 2-Year Participation Rate Interest Rate Crediting Options, with the selection of the Rate Enhancement Rider, results in the following illustrated Historical Returns:
    • Most Recent 10 years: 8.96% (Geometric Mean Annual Effective Rate)
    • Most Favorable 10 years: 10.52% (Geometric Mean Annual Effective Rate)
    • Least Favorable 10 years: 7.19% (Geometric Mean Annual Effective Rate)
  • The Credit Suisse Momentum Index One-year point-to-point with Participation Rate crediting strategy offers consistent interest rate crediting and a likelihood of crediting positive interest. In fact, the Credit Suisse Momentum Index One-year point-to-point with Participation Rate crediting strategy option historically shows you can earn positive annual returns on 96% of possible deposit dates.* That means a lot more comfortable conversations at annual review time with your clients.

No worries on renewal Rates: The Participation Rates for the Credit Suisse Momentum Index One-year point-to-point and Two-year point-to-point crediting strategies are guaranteed for 10 years from the annuity issue date, provided that Atlantic Coast Life Insurance Company continues to have access to the Credit Suisse Momentum Index.

Optional Rate Enhancement Rider

Clients choose between the Optional Rate Enhancement Rider OR NO Rider Versions:

Rate Enhancement Rider

The Rate Enhancement Rider is an optional rider available to be added to the contract at the time of application. Rider Benefits are:

  • Better Interest Rate Options: This rider provides higher Caps, Interest Rates, and Participation Rates to the applicable Fixed Account and Index Accounts than those Caps, Interest Rates, and Participation Rates of the annuity without the rider

  • Pricing Guarantee: The Accumulation Protector Plus Annuity offers a 110% Return of Premium (ROP) Guarantee* if the Rate Enhancement Rider is purchased and the contract persists to year 10. The premium is adjusted for withdrawals.

*110% Return of Premium (ROP) Guarantee is offered if the Rate Enhancement Rider is purchased and the contract persists to year 10.

Choose From Eight Growth Strategies

Your client has the flexibility to choose how their single premium is allocated across eight crediting strategies. These crediting strategies include a Fixed Account and seven Indexed Accounts linked to two indices: the Credit Suisse Momentum Index and the S&P 500® Index. We know that your client’s life and needs are ever-evolving, and that is why they can adjust their allocations on the policy anniversary coinciding with the end of each strategy’s crediting period.

The crediting periods for the Accumulation Protector PlusSM Annuity’s crediting strategies range from one, two, or three years. The crediting strategies include a Fixed Rate account, a Trigger Rate account, and several Point-to-Point with Participation Rate or Cap Rate accounts. A Point-to-Point strategy measures the difference in the index’s value on each policy anniversary, comparing it to the value of the index either a year earlier, two years earlier, or three years earlier, depending on the option chosen.
