  • Pacific Life Announces the First Performance Factors (2.46 and 4.18) for Its Best-Selling Indexed Universal Life Insurance Product

    November 27, 2018 by Pacific Life

    ALISO VIEJO, Calif. – November 15, 2018:  Pacific Life Insurance Company has announced the calculation of the first Performance Factors for its industry-leading1 indexed universal life insurance product, Pacific Discovery Xelerator IUL (PDX).2The PDX product provides death benefit protection and features a non-guaranteed Performance Factor that may multiply the interest credited to the indexed accounts beginning in the third policy year.

    “PDX was designed to deliver client value and upside potential in a time of challenging interest and growth cap rate environments,” says John O’Donnell, vice president of product design, life insurance division at Pacific Life. “The policyowner may pay higher policy charges with PDX, but those charges are used to support the Performance Factor, which may multiply the indexed interest credited to the policy. In effect, our innovative product design has allowed us to deliver competitive interest crediting potential, even at today’s lower current growth cap rates.”

    The first Performance Factor calculated on a PDX policy is 2.46, which means it will multiply any positive index-based interest crediting rate by 2.46 at segment maturity. It was promptly followed by another Performance Factor calculated on another PDX policy at 4.18.3

    According to O’Donnell, “If the client’s indexed interest credit met the then-current growth cap rate of 10 percent, those segments would earn respective indexed crediting rates of 24.60 percent and 41.80 percent at segment maturity.”

    Every PDX policyowner will have numerous Performance Factors throughout the life of their PDX policy, but each Performance Factor is guaranteed to be no less than 1.00. The current Performance Factor is formula-driven and will vary based on a number of criteria, including death benefit option, face amount, accumulated value, indexed account, policy year, and the insured’s issue age, sex, and risk class.

    “We are proud to demonstrate the value of our innovative product design for our policyowners,” says O’Donnell. “We believe it demonstrates our long-term perspective and commitment to building life insurance products that stand the test of time.”

    Policyowners can see their PDX Performance Factors in their quarterly and annual statements available online at www.PacificLife.com or by request from their life insurance producer.

    2.       Pacific Life Insurance Company’s Pacific Discovery Xelerator IUL (PDX IUL) indexed universal life insurance (form #P15IUL and S16PDX or ICC15 P15IUL and ICC16 S16PDX, based on state of policy issue). IUL does not directly participate in any equity or stock investments. Pacific Life reserves the right to change or modify any non-guaranteed or current elements. The right to modify these elements is not limited to a specific time or reason.

    3.       This reflects the actual Performance Factor (PF) calculated for two existing PDX IUL policies. The current PF is guaranteed until Segment Maturity, so if the Indexed Segment matures with a positive interest crediting rate, the resulting interest credit will be multiplied by [2.46] or [4.18] to result in the new total interest credited. Results will vary and this is no representation that your client’s policy will receive similar results. Historical returns are no guarantee of future performance.
