American Equity is excited to share new enhancements to our flagship accumulation-focused
fixed index annuity, AssetShield.

The AssetShield 5, 7, and 10 year product now offers additional equity and multi-asset index options, as well as the choice to purchase a higher rate on crediting strategies for added growth potential. These enhancements build on the existing AssetShield base product that was originally designed for asset growth with crediting strategies linked to S&P 500® indices.
