We're enhancing the funds for Protective® Dimensions IV Variable Annuity – see what's changing!

December 13, 2021

We're committed to quality investment practices and providing funds with strong performance, so we're excited to announce changes to the investment options available within Protective® Dimensions IV Variable Annuity.

Effective December 13, 2021, Protective Dimensions IV Variable Annuity will undergo the following changes:

Addition of new investment options and fund managers to optimize growth potential
To help clients take advantage of growth opportunities in the market, 36 funds, including options from new leading fund managers like AllianceBernstein and T.Rowe Price, will be added to the Protective Dimensions IV Variable Annuity. These additional funds will be available to new and existing contract holders:

  • The added funds will be available to new contract holders with an application submission date on or after December 13, 2021.
  • For existing contract holders, the new funds will be available on December 13, 2021.

Updates to the model portfolios
Like all the investment options available within our variable annuity portfolio, each new fund was carefully selected based on fund management experience, quality investment practices and strong performance. But we know that an expanded investment lineup could be overwhelming for clients seeking more turnkey options. That's why we're also updating the model portfolios, each of which offers diverse asset classes to support clients' growth goals based on their risk tolerance.

Removal of some investment options
As part of our most recent review of the investment options, we've made the decision to remove 22 funds from the Protective Dimensions IV Variable Annuity, effective December 13, 2021.

  • Existing contract holders will retain access to these funds and can rebalance, reallocate, and deposit new premium into these funds, even if not currently allocated to them.
  • The 22 removed funds will not be available to new contracts with an app signed date on or after December 13, 2021.

Please review the Investment Option Changes Summary for a full list of additions and removals.
