Horsham, PA (PRWEB) March 05, 2014
The Penn Mutual Life Insurance Company, a more than 167-year-old company, is pleased to announce the addition of a new High Participation 1 Year S&P 500® Indexed Account option for its Accumulation Builder Choice (SM) Indexed Universal Life (IUL) product.
This new option is one of four indexed accounts available with Penn Mutual’s Accumulation Builder Choice (SM) IUL product, which offers market-based growth potential without the risk of participating directly in the stock market. The indexed account options credit interest based on the performance of a market index (excluding dividends), up to a competitive cap.
Different from Penn Mutual’s other Indexed Account options, the High Participation 1 Year S&P 500 Indexed Account provides the potential for enhanced interest based on a participation rate higher than 100 percent. As long as S&P 500® growth for the 12-month segment period is less than the account’s current cap, interest credited to the policy may be enhanced by the higher participation rate. For example, if the index account earned 6% for the stated time period, the interest percentage actually credited to a policy with a participation rate in excess of 100% would be higher than 6% (up to the stated cap). A guaranteed floor of 1 percent ensures policyholder accounts are credited with interest in the event of a negative change in the S&P 500® from the segment start date to the segment maturity date.
This account option is ideal for policyholders who:
- Desire growth tied to performance of a well-established Index like the S&P 500®, widely regarded as the best single gauge of the large cap U.S. equities market
- Have concerns about fluctuations in index performance and are interested in lower account volatility
- Seek more upside potential with an interest enhancement
“Penn Mutual’s Accumulation Builder Choice IUL is a permanent life product for clients seeking both protection and cash accumulation potential to help achieve more in life. We offer our policyholders a diverse choice of ways to accumulate cash value to fit a variety of needs and preferences and our High Participation 1 Year S&P 500® Indexed Account is an excellent addition to our lineup,” said Andrew Martin, Assistant Vice President, Product Management, Penn Mutual. “While the High Participation 1 Year S&P 500 Indexed Account does not ensure long-term performance will be higher or lower than other account options, it does offer the possibility for higher interest crediting, up to the cap, in more modest performance years. Used in combination with Accumulation Builder Choice’s other attractive account options, it can help clients have a balanced approach that ensures strong upside potential and peace of mind.”
