Nationwide New Heights® IUL Accumulator 2020
and the J.P. Morgan Mozaic IISM Index

An IUL with Historical
Returns of 10%?

The results are compelling

When looking historically at 10-year rolling period averages, the hypothetical example shows the frequency the uncapped 2-year J.P. Morgan Mozaic IISM Indexed Interest Strategy would have credited rates at or above 10%.

The Value of an Uncapped Strategy

While no analysis can predict what any single product will credit, historical rates of return for the underlying index may be useful to help better understand the interest crediting method of indexed life insurance products.

The chart below is a hypothetical example that shows the frequency at which the uncapped 2-year J.P. Morgan Mozaic IISM Indexed Interest Strategy in Nationwide New Heights® Indexed Universal Life Accumulator 2020 (New Heights® IUL) versus a 9.5% capped strategy would have achieved certain interest credits averaged over 10-year rolling periods.

Historical Crediting Rate

This graph illustrates the frequency that a 10-year average Hypothetical Index Return is greater than or equal to 6% to 10%. The analysis compares two indexed interest strategies:
a.) 2-year J.P. Morgan Mozaic IISM strategy with a 190% participation pate and no cap rate to b.) 1-year S&P 500® strategy with a 100% participation rate and a 9.5% cap rate. Both strategies are point-to-point and have a 0% floor rate. A compound annual growth rate (CAGR) is calculated based on money placed in the strategy and held there for 10 years. The 10-year segments start every month between 11/15/1996 and 6/15/2020, and the last period ends 6/15/2020 for a total of 164 periods.
Only the investment is considered with the stated participation, cap and floor rates, with no other product impacts such as additional premiums or fees. This averaging method smooths out returns and is different from what the hypothetical annual crediting rate would have been. For example, the 10-year averages for the J.P. Morgan Mozaic IISM strategy was greater than 6% for all 164 of the ten-year periods, not that every single year was greater than 6%. The hypothetical 10-year averages provide a longer-term perspective on historical crediting rates. The J.P. Morgan Mozaic IISM Index was established on 12/28/16. Performance shown is back-tested by applying the indexed interest strategies to historical financial data when all components are available and was designed with the benefit of hindsight. Back-tested performance is hypothetical and has been provided for informational purposes only. Additional crediting options are available in the Nationwide New Heights® IUL Accumulator 2020 product.
The chart does not represent actual historical results and does not predict or guarantee future performance.
