Genworth's New CapMax(SM) Interest Crediting Strategy Helps Enhance Growth Potential Of SecureLiving® Fixed Index Annuities

Stocks in this article: GNW

RICHMOND, Va., Dec. 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- For consumers planning for retirement in today's low interest rate environment, Genworth has launched a unique, patent-pending interest crediting methodology, called CapMax(SM), that is available exclusively on Genworth's SecureLiving ® Index Annuities. CapMax is designed to take advantage of periods of positive momentum in the S&P 500 Index to create the opportunity for greater growth potential to Genworth SecureLiving Index annuity contract owners.

Instead of locking in gains after just one year, CapMax allows owners of SecureLiving Index Annuities to roll forward a portion of their current year's interest credit in exchange for the opportunity to multiply next year's growth potential with the CapMax Multiplier by as much as three times.  

"With the Federal Reserve saying it plans to keep interest rates very low for at least the next two and half years, those seeking reliable, sustainable sources of retirement income – and the financial professionals who serve them – are facing a challenging environment," said Paul Haley, SVP and Annuity leader at Genworth. "Our CapMax index crediting strategy has the potential to outperform other existing index crediting strategies when the S&P 500 Index delivers consecutive years of growth, giving financial professionals a powerful tool to help put clients back on the path to growth."

As a fixed annuity, the contract value is protected against downturns in the S&P 500 Index.
