If you currently utilize RILAs (a.k.a. buffered or floor) products… Opportunity is knocking!
For the same 20% buffer you can get elsewhere, let’s do some Athene® AMPLIFY “Upside Math”!
- Door 1: Index up 100%; You’re up 135% (Outperforming the 100% Participation solutions and the index)
- Door 2: Index up 250%; You’re up 337.5%
- Door 3: Index up 300%; You’re up 405%
It all has to do with the power of the 135% “Multiplier” on Athene “AMPLIFY”:
- Basic premise is that many financial professionals think a 250% “cap” (available on many RILA products in the industry) is better than a 135% “participation rate” (available only from Athene!) They hear 250%… and naturally assume the higher number is better.
- Reality is that no matter WHAT the index returns… Athene is always going to multiply that return by 1.35 (i.e., 135%).
- Thus, in all 3 scenarios shown above (Index up 100%; Index up 250%; Index up 300%) Athene WINS each time! (And in the 3rd scenario… the client would actually be capped at 250% with most other carrier’s RILA product…. whereas Athene would multiply the FULL 300% index return by 1.35).
