Price and performance
The returns displayed generally will not align with your quarterly statement returns due to differences in time periods, and the specific fees and charges associated with your contract.
You could lose money by investing in the AZL® Government Money Market Fund. Although the Fund seeks to preserve the value of your investment at $1.00 per share, it cannot guarantee it will do so. An investment in the Fund is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency. The Fund’s sponsor has no legal obligation to provide financial support to the Fund, and you should not expect that the sponsor will provide financial support to the Fund at any time. 7-Day Current Yield more closely reflects the current earnings than the total return.
The Allianz Investment Management LLC, Allianz Global Investors, NFJ Investment Group LLC, RCM Capital Management LLC, and PIMCO investment options are managed by an affiliate of Allianz Life Insurance Company of North America, Allianz Life Insurance Company of New York, and Allianz Life Financial Services, LLC. All are affiliated companies.
Performance data quoted represents past performance. Past performance is not a guarantee of future results. Investment return and principal value will fluctuate with market conditions, so that units, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than the original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance information quoted. To access the most current month-end performance, please select Standardized Monthly Performance from the View Type above.
Performance is calculated on the basis of historical performance of each investment option. Actual performance from the date the Separate Account began investing in the investment option is shown. Performance figures show the change in value of a hypothetical investment over the indicated periods, assuming reinvestment of dividends and capital gains.
Standardized performance information reflects the deduction of the mortality and expense risk (M&E) charge except Allianz Index Advantage® Variable Annuity, which reflects deduction of the product fee instead of an M&E charge.
Standardized performance for all listed variable annuities also reflects the fees and expenses of the investment options after reductions for fee waivers and expense reimbursements, contract maintenance charge, and withdrawal charge as follows:
|Withdrawal charge schedule|
|Allianz VisionSM Variable Annuity||8.5%, 8.5%, 7.5%, 6.5%, 5%, 4%, 3%, 0%|
|Allianz ConnectionsSM Variable Annuity||8.5%, 8.5%, 7.5%, 6.5%, 5%, 4%, 3%, 0%|
|Allianz Index Advantage® Variable Annuity||8.5%, 8%, 7%, 6%, 5%, 4%, 0%|
|Allianz Index Advantage NF® Variable Annuity||8.5%, 8%, 7%, 6%, 5%, 4%, 0%|
The M&E charge is assessed daily against the investment options' net asset value (NAV). The product fee and a contract maintenance charge of 0.01% are shown as assessed against the investment options' NAV on the last day of each year (or the last day of the period for any period of less than one year) and the withdrawal charge is shown as assessed against the NAV on the last day of each period using the withdrawal charge percentage that would apply at that time. The product fee, contract maintenance charge, and withdrawal charge are not reflected as actually calculated and deducted. They are shown as a representation of these fees' impacts on fund performance. This may overstate or understate actual performance.
Standardized performance information does not reflect the deduction of any optional rider charge. Performance would be lower if the investment options' fees were calculated before reductions for waivers and reimbursements, or if rider charges were deducted. Investment option fee waivers and expense reimbursements are not permanent and may be discontinued. Please see the prospectus for more details on contract expenses and charges.
Standardized performance information for Allianz Index Advantage ADV® Variable Annuity
Standardized performance information reflects the fees and expenses of the investment options after reductions for fee waivers and expense reimbursements, the product fee, and contract maintenance charge. However, standardized performance information does not reflect deduction of the withdrawal charge (which is 6.5%, 6%, 5%, 4%, 3%, 2%, 0%) as the withdrawal charge only applies to, and is only deducted from, the index options. Withdrawal charges are not assessed or deducted from the variable options.
Investing in a variable annuity may be the answer for part of your overall retirement strategy. A variable annuity offers a unique combination of features, including market participation through a variety of investment options; tax-deferred growth opportunities; and optional protection benefits that can provide certain accumulation, income, and beneficiary guarantees for an additional cost. Please note that we no longer offer any variable life insurance products.
Variable annuities are subject to investment risk, including loss of principal, and contract values fluctuate daily. Investment returns and principal value will fluctuate with market conditions so that units, upon distribution, may be worth more or less than the original cost.
Variable investment options are available only as investment options in variable annuity contracts. They are not made available to the general public directly.
Withdrawals will reduce the contract value and the value of any protection benefits. Withdrawals taken within the contract withdrawal charge schedule will be subject to a withdrawal charge. All withdrawals are subject to ordinary income tax and, if taken prior to age 59½, may be subject to a 10% federal additional tax.
