A Diversified Approach

Protect Your Retirement Assets
Select a portion of client's retirement assets to protect from loss while participating in potential growth opportunities. For the portion of assets placed in the Brighthouse Shield Level 10 Annuities, consider such factors as the client's investment time horizon and risk tolerance before making the purchase payment.

Participate in Growth Opportunities
Losses in your clients' portfolios can lower their overall value, overshadowing other gains. Help protect a portion of their assets while enjoying potential diversified growth opportunities. Shield Level 10 Annuities are designed to do just that. They provide a combination of protection and participation while seeking growth by tracking the index or indices they choose.

Goals-Based Considerations

Allocate a Portion of Clients' Retirement Assets
Consider all the assets your clients have saved for retirement and have them select the portion to help protect from loss while participating in potential growth opportunities.

Track a Preferred Index
You have the flexibility to allocate your purchase payment among three indices - S&P 500® IndexA, Russell 2000® IndexB, and MSCI EAFE IndexC – each with a one-year term that provides a 10% level of protection.2

Shield Options at Work

Pursue Potential Growth Opportunities
The Shield Option combines the 10% level of protection, called a Shield Rate, with a Cap Rate3, or Step Rate, if desired. The Cap Rate is the maximum percentage earned for your term. Step Rates will vary.
