Growing your moneyInterest Crediting StrategiesStrategies are methods used to calculate how much interest, if any, will becredited to your annuity. Athene Performance Elite annuities allow you toallocate your money among one or more of the available interest creditingstrategies. You can reallocate available funds at the end of each crediting period.Fixed StrategyThe Fixed Strategy provides a guaranteed rate of interest that is used to calculate and credit interest toyour annuity daily. Athene declares the guaranteed rate for this strategy each contract year.Indexed StrategiesWith indexed strategies, you receive interest credits that are linked in part to the performance of externalmarket indices. Interest you earn is credited at the end of each Index Term Period.Indexed crediting strategies offer two benefits. You receive interest credits that are based in part onthe growth of the market index. You’re also guaranteed to never earn less than 0% interest. So eventhough it’s possible that you may have years when you have no interest credited to your contract, youwill not lose any money in your annuity due to market losses — even during economic downturns.In exchange for this protection, indexed crediting strategies limit the interest rate you can receive. Thelimit can take the form of a Cap Rate, an Annual Spread and/or a Participation Rate. Athene declaresthe caps, annual spreads and participation rates at the end of each term period. Please see the IndexedStrategy Inserts provided with this brochure for more information. Note that Athene may add or eliminateindexed strategies from time to time. A specific strategy may not be available for the life of your contract.Athene Performance Elite 7 Annuities provide you with a number of different index strategies. Pleaserefer to the Product Guide for available index options.6

Athene’s indexed interest crediting strategiesfeature the following benefits: Any interest earned is credited at the end of thecrediting period.

We guarantee youwill not lose money due to market risk or losses.Fixed indexed annuities are not stock market investments and do not directly participate in any stock or equityinvestments.
