Volatility control seeks to provide smoother returns and mitigate sharp market fluctuations. While this type of strategy can lessen the impact of market downturns, it can also lessen the impact of market upturns, potentially limiting upside potential.
The Balanced Asset 10 IndexTM and Balanced Asset 5 IndexTM (the “Indexes”) are the exclusive property of Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce (Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce, together with its affiliates, “CIBC”). CIBC has engaged Bloomberg Index Services Limited (“BISL”) to maintain and to make certain calculations related to the Indexes. “Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce”, “CIBC” and “Index(es)” (collectively, the “CIBC Marks”) are trademarks or service marks of CIBC. CIBC has licensed use of the Indexes and the CIBC Marks to Fidelity and Guaranty Life Insurance Company (“F&G”) for use in one or more fixed indexed annuities offered by F&G (the “Product(s)”). CIBC is not the issuer of the Products and its sole contractual relationship with F&G is to license the Indexes and the CIBC Marks to F&G. CIBC developed the Indexes without considering the needs of F&G or any annuitant. CIBC makes no representation or warranty, express or implied, regarding the Indexes or their development and has no responsibilities, obligations or liabilities with respect to the inception, adjustment, maintenance, operation or calculation of the Indexes.
None of CIBC, BISL or any other third-party licensor (collectively, the “Index Parties”) to CIBC is acting, or has been authorized to act, as an agent of F&G or has in any way sponsored, promoted, solicited, negotiated, endorsed, offered, sold, issued, supported, structured or priced any Products or provided investment advice to F&G. No Index Party is a fiduciary or agent of any purchaser, seller or holder of any Product, or has made any representation or warranty, express or implied, regarding the advisability of purchasing, selling or holding any Product or the ability of the Indexes to track corresponding or relative market performance.

No Index Party guarantees the timeliness, accurateness, or completeness of the Indexes or any data or information relating thereto and shall have no liability in connection with the Indexes or any data or information relating thereto. No Index Party shall have any liability with respect to any Product, nor any liability for any loss relating to any Product, whether arising directly or indirectly from the use of the Indexes, its methodologies or otherwise. The selection of an Index as a crediting option under any Product does not obligate F&G to invest annuity premiums in the components of such Index. Any obligation to invest annuity premiums received under the Products are determined solely by F&G.
BLOOMBERG is a trademark and service mark of Bloomberg Finance L.P. (collectively with BISL and their other affiliates, “Bloomberg”). Bloomberg is not affiliated with F&G or CIBC.

In calculating the level of the Balanced Asset 10 index and level of the Balanced Asset 5 index, the index methodology deducts a maintenance fee of 0.85% per year, calculated daily. This fee will reduce the level of each Index and thus the amount of interest, if any, that will be credited to any Product. Furthermore, while the volatility control applied by CIBC as part of the index methodology may result in less fluctuation in rates of return as compared to indexes without volatility controls, it may also reduce the overall rate of return for products referencing one of the Indexes as compared to other indexes not subject to volatility controls.
