The Buffer Protect Strategy Scenario Analyzer is for illustrative purposes only and is not intended to be indicative of future results.

Key Assumptions and Limitations

The calculations of the reference asset level performance range and the Strategy’s hypothetical returns are based on the current values shown above.

The Strategy’s hypothetical return assumes the current reference asset level remains unchanged and the investment will be held to the end of the Target Outcome Period. The Strategy's hypothetical return utilizes the intrinsic value of the options positions used to establish the Cap and Buffer range. Due to the hypothetical nature of the returns, actual performance and returns of any product related to the strategy may be higher or lower than the returns depicted by the Buffer Protect Strategy Scenario Analyzer. Hypothetical returns do not reflect fees or expenses.

IMPORTANT: The projections or other information generated by this Buffer Protect Strategy Scenario Analyzer regarding the likelihood of various investment outcomes are hypothetical in nature, do not reflect actual investment results and are not guarantees of future results. Results may vary with each use and over time.
