Past performance does not guarantee future results. Investment results will vary.

Notes: 

  1. The Linked Interest Options available with the Equation universal life insurance policy offer exposure to both equity and fixed income markets. While linked interest options may provide the potential for greater rates of return over the long term, there is an inherent risk in selecting them as investment options. Unlike the daily interest account or the guaranteed deposit accounts where there are guarantees with respect to the credited interest rates, investments in the linked interest options are NOT GUARANTEED. It is possible to receive negative interest, which will result in a decrease to account value. Policyholders should ensure that there are always sufficient funds to cover the monthly charges, including cost of insurance, administration and any riders and benefits.
  2. Linked Interest Options are NOT mutual funds, segregated funds, indices, or any other kind of investment fund: the policyholders are NOT acquiring units in an investment fund or other security. Funds are placed on deposit, earning interest, with the general funds of Equitable Life®. Policyholders may be credited positive or debited negative interest depending on the performance of the underlying fund or index being tracked. Linked Interest Option administration fees will apply.
  3. Interest earnings shown above do not reflect the current Equation® Linked Interest Option Administration Charges. The Linked Interest Option Administration Charges must be taken into consideration when determining interest credited or debited to the policy. Please see the policy contract for details.
  4. A Linked Interest Option’s underlying fund or index being tracked may change at any time. Each performance rate shown reflects a Linked Interest Option’s performance rate and the underlying fund or index it was tracking at that time. An historical performance rate may be reflective of a time when the LIO was tracking a underlying fund or index which is different from the underlying fund or index currently being tracked.
  5. Values for reporting periods under 1 year reflect the actual percentage change for the period in question. All values shown for reporting periods of 1 year or greater reflect average annual compound rates of return.
  6. “Since Inception” rates reflect the interest earnings since the Linked Interest Option became available with Equation®, Equation Generation® II, Equation Generation® III, or Equation Generation® IV universal life. They do not reflect the actual inception date for the underlying fund or index currently being tracked or any underlying fund or index which was previously tracked.
