Hypothetical Example: Allocate: 100% to 1 year Indexed Interest Strategy Account 0% Guaranteed Floor; 12% Cap; S&P 500 Investment Bank gives Quote for the cost of 12% Cap & 0% Floor: 5% Gross Premium $1,100 $950.00 General Account General Account Accumulates to $1,000 This supports Guaranteed

Cap Rate 12% 5% 5% 12% 4% 5% Cap lowered 5% 6% Cap lowered For Insurance professional use only 7 What to look for when you see high Cap rates When You see High Cap rates (14% or higher) including No Cap rate (un-capped), you may find: Participation Rate less than 100% Bond included in Underlying Index Blend

Segment Maturity of more than 1 year Spread (percentage subtracted from credit applied) Daily Averaging or Monthly Averaging Crediting Method Segment Charge for the Crediting Method Higher base policy charges For Insurance professional use only 8 Common Misperceptions in IUL Perception True/ False Comment Insurance company keeps index credit that is above Cap rate? For example: Underlying Index grew by 15% and Cap rate of 12%

False Insurance company would purchase package of options to match the 12% Cap and therefore not receive anything above the 12%. The base policy charge structure could be as impactful as indexed interest strategy selected True Do not forget to review the competitiveness of the base policy charges of the IUL product Dividends are included in tracking the performance of the underlying index False Since the insurance company is not purchasing stocks of the index(s), they are not receiving dividends. A company could do this, but the cost of these options would likely be more impacting Cap rates For Insurance professional use only

At the end of the segment period the average of these values (added together & divided by 12) are compared to initial value to determine the rate credited subject to the annual Cap and Participation rates. Monthly Cap (Monthly Point-to-Point): each month the percentage change

of the index(s) from the prior month are recorded. The percentage changes are subject to the Cap and Participation rate which is applied monthly. At the end of the year these values are added together to determine the credit. Crediting Method Comment Monthly Averaging Monthly Averaging is likely to have higher utilization and recognition from advisors than the Monthly Cap. Monthly Cap Expect to see lower Cap rates with Monthly Caps - such as 3%-4% when compared to Monthly Averaging Cap rates. Note: Nationwide offers Monthly Averaging Indexed Interest Strategy, not Monthly Caps For Insurance professional use only 14 Cumulative Guarantee vs. Guaranteed Floor They are Not the Same Guaranteed Floor Minimum amount credited at each Segment Maturity Usually 0%. Could be: 0.75%, 1% or 2% Cumulative Guarantee (aka: True Up on Surrender or Alternate Policy Value) Minimum amount credited upon Death, Surrender or Policy Maturity Does Not apply credit at Segment Maturity Cumulative Guarantee could be 1%, 2%, 3% Please note: Cumulative Guarantees also have a Guaranteed Floor (usually 0%)

Example: Underlying Index Growth 0% at Segment Maturity Type Percent Applied at Segment Maturity Guaranteed Floor 1% 1% Cumulative Guarantee 3% 0% For Insurance professional use only 15 Impact of Distributions on Crediting End Point Crediting: Index credit is applied to any remaining value in indexed interest strategy account(s) at segment maturity Pro Rata Crediting: May apply some index credit at segment maturity on amounts distributed (loans/withdrawals) prior to segment maturity Still Receive Index Interest Credit if take distribution prior to segment maturity? New Premium Restrictions

or Matured Segment Premium Restrictions if take unscheduled distribution? End Point Yes, however only receive credit No Pro Rata Yes, some companies may have Lock Out Period which prohibits new premium from being allocated to that Indexed Interest Strategy for 1 year applied to values remaining in segment at maturity Yes, may also receive some index credit based on the length of time the money was allocated to indexed interest strategy prior to distribution Note: Nationwide utilizes End Point Crediting method For Insurance professional use only 16 Illustrating Indexed UL Illustrating IULs Companies assume Various Default Illustrated Rates

Companies assume Various Look back Periods to determine Default Rate Term Description Usually Sometimes Default Rate Rate company uses to hypothetically project values in illustration 6% - 8% 4.60% 10% Look Back Period Number of preceding years used in formula to determine the default rate 20 30 yrs 10 yrs 28 yrs 40 yrs What rate should you use to illustrate IUL?

Companys Default Rate, or Flat rate: 6%, or 7% For Insurance professional use only 17 Common Misperceptions of IUL Perception True/ False Comment A client can transfer indexed segment values in the middle of the segment term False You can only transfer monies out of a segment once it has matured. Participation rates applied before Cap rates are the same as a Participation Rate applied after the Cap Rate False Usually you will find that the Participation rates are applied before the Cap Rate

All Point to Point Crediting Methods exclusively measure 2 points in time False Some include in their formula an averaging out the final year (such as average out 5th year) A guaranteed Cap rate could be as low as 0% True This is unusual, usually guaranteed Cap rates are between 2% - 4% NLG Riders on IUL products can have allocation requirements* in order to be eligible for the guarantee True With some companies this means allocating more to the Fixed account. And, with other companies it means allocating more to the Indexed Interest Strategy Account *For Nationwide, the allocations must be 100% to the Indexed Interest Strategy Account(s) when selecting our optional Extended Death Benefit Guarantee Rider For Insurance professional use only 18

Understanding IUL Statements Reflecting Index Credit on Statement Most companies do Not reflect credit applied to Indexed Interest Strategy for that year in the Annual Statement A few companies send out Monthly Confirmation Statements (including Nationwide) Example: January 4, 2013 Policy Issued January 15, 2013 Monies Swept from Fixed Account into Indexed Interest Strategy --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------January 3, 2014 Statement Reporting Period 365 days (1/4/13 1/3/14) January 4, 2014 January 15, 2014 for statement) Statement Automatically Generated (but Indexed Interest Strategy hasnt matured yet) Index Interest Strategy Segment Matures (too late For Insurance professional use only 19 Variable Loans Variable Loans: Also known as Participating or Alternative Loans When loaned values continue to participate in the growth potential of underlying index(s) instead of being transferred to a separate loan account.

Nationwide offers Alternative Loans with a current loan interest rate of 4.22% subject to a maximum charge capped at 8%. See advisor guide for details. Note: Intended for clients with appropriate capital and risk tolerance. Utilizing variable loans can result in earning a lower interest rate credited to the accumulated value than the rate charged on the loan balance. For example: if have $1,000,000 loan value and a 0% return in the underlying index(s) and 5% variable loan charge then: $50,000 is the amount the loan has grown by based on the 5% charged rate.
