Variable Universal Life Insurance Investment Options

A variable life insurance policy is primarily purchased to provide death benefit protection. Additionally, owning a policy requires decisions about allocating your policy cash values among the product's variable and fixed investment options. Every investment involves some level of risk for the opportunity to earn a higher return. Finding the right balance between them is critical.

With its variable life insurance products, Pacific Life offers a broad range of investment options. The variable investment options shown at the top of this chart may provide you with the potential reward of higher returns, if you are willing to take on additional risk. When evaluating these investment options, you and your life insurance producer or financial advisor should select your investment options based on your unique investment objectives, financial circumstances, and willingness to tolerate risk.  

The investment options within each subcategory are listed alphabetically and do not illustrate a continuum of risk/reward. Generally, portfolios of fixed income securities are less aggressive than portfolios of equity securities. While fixed income portfolios tend to be less aggressive, they still carry a variety of risks, and some will have more risks than others. Before investing, you should carefully read the investment options' prospectuses and review the investment goals/objectives and risks of the investment options.

You should carefully consider a variable life insurance product's risks, charges, limitations, and expenses, as well as the risks, charges, expenses and investment goals/objectives of the underlying options. This and other information about Pacific Life's insurance products are provided in the applicable product and underlying fund prospectuses which are available from your life insurance producer or by clicking here. Read them carefully before investing or sending money.

Pacific Life refers to Pacific Life Insurance Company and its affiliates, including Pacific Life & Annuity Company. Insurance products are issued by Pacific Life Insurance Company in all states except New York and in New York by Pacific Life & Annuity Company. Product availability and features may vary by state. Each insurance company is solely responsible for the financial obligations accruing under the products it issues. Insurance products and their guarantees, including optional benefits and any fixed subaccount crediting rates, are backed by the financial strength and claims-paying ability of the issuing insurance company, but they do not protect the value of the variable investment options. Look to the strength of the life insurance company with regard to such guarantees as these guarantees are not backed by the broker-dealer, insurance agency or their affiliates from which products are purchased. Neither these entities nor their representatives make any representation or assurance regarding the claims-paying ability of the life insurance company. Variable insurance products are distributed by Pacific Select Distributors, LLC (member FINRA & SIPC), a subsidiary of Pacific Life Insurance Company, and an affiliate of Pacific Life & Annuity Company, and are available through licensed third-party broker-dealers.
