Reset of the death benefit guarantee in Series 75/100

Resets are a key advantage for protecting investment funds when markets fluctuate.

  • Despite market fluctuations, the value of the capital invested is protected and can only increase!
  • At the time of death, the amount paid to the beneficiary(ies) is the greater of the fund’s market value and the value of the guarantee after resets.
  • The Series 75/100 offers the option of one reset per calendar year until the client reaches age 80.

See how the reset proves its true worth

For example:
  • In 2003, Peter, 64, made an initial deposit of $50,000 in the Fidelity European Equity Fund of Series 75/100.
  • His advisor did a reset to crystallize his gains each year in which it was favourable.
If Peter were to die in 2012,
  • $93,500 would be paid to his spouse (designated beneficiary), i.e. the amount of the last reset in 2007, and a significant difference of $21,500 compared to the market value of the fund at that time ($72,000).
