Renewal-Rate Stability in a Declining-Rate Environment
Do declining new-money rates mean that once an index-annuity contract is issued, the renewal rates will decline also? Not with MarketValue Index. The 1-Year Point-to-Point Participation strategy – which tends to be more sensitive to market changes than other strategies – shows a strong renewal-rate history. A lookback to when the strategy was added in November, 2017 shows that renewal rates either stayed the same or increased. No renewal-rate declines.

Renewal-Rate History – On Display
We're very proud of this history. So much so that we make our renewal rates readily available at Agents.EquiTrust.com, at the 'Interest Rates' Quick Link. While renewal rates may decrease in the future, this resiliency during a period of declining rates demonstrates the integrity that drives EquiTrust renewal-rate-setting practices.
