Athene Holding’s ATH subsidiary, Athene USA has launched a fixed indexed annuity (FIA), Athene AccuMax, offering three different options to get exposure to the market. Athene AccuMax has been issued by Athene Annuity and Life Company, a subsidiary of Athene.

AccuMax offers single-term, multi-year crediting strategies, attractive Participation Rates and protection from losses due to market downturns. It sets all crediting rates at issue and guarantees them for the Withdrawal Charge Period.

It provides the ability to create a legacy. The beneficiaries are guaranteed an amount greater than the annuity’s Interim Value or Minimum Guaranteed Contract Value. The newly launched fixed indexed annuity is developed for long-term savers who are looking for index-driven growth potential as an alternative to traditional fixed income alternatives. AccuMax has been launched to optimise long-term Retirement Savings.
