How allocations change with conditions
The J.P. Morgan CycleSM Index is designed to have higher equity allocations when the market is stable and higher bond allocations when the market becomes more volatile.
During an economic recovery with a volatile market, the index was invested in value stocks with a large percentage in bonds.
During an economic expansion with a stable market, the index was invested pretty evenly between momentum stocks and bonds.
During an economic contraction with a volatile market, the index was invested in quality stocks with a large percentage in bonds.
During an economic slowdown with a volatile market, the index was invested in low-volatility stocks with a large percentage in bonds.
Impact of Lower Volatility
Indexed annuities typically credit earnings in one-year or two-year increments. In times of high volatility, providing any credit can be a challenge for some traditional market indexes. The J.P. Morgan Cycle Index is designed to keep volatility low and, over time, its more consistent returns may offer greater growth potential, regardless of the cap or participation rate selected.
One-year Increments – Capped returns
Comparing returns inside and outside the Nationwide Peak 10 fixed indexed annuity shows that the J.P. Morgan Cycle℠ Index has more consistent returns and fewer instances of zero returns
Two-year increments – participation rate with spreads
In a volatile market environment, using two-year terms with spreads may provide more positive results.
