How registered indexed-linked annuities work
Each allocation strategy has a specific combination of protection and market-linked growth features working to limit loss and offer growth potential based on positive index performance up to a specified cap or participation rate. The more risk clients are willing to take on with the protection features, the higher the potential interest credited to their contract. Performance is fully credited annually to help minimize the effect of market fluctuations throughout the year.
