1 SECURITY BENEFIT Advisor Program MUTUAL FUNDS FOR IRA SEP/SIMPLE IRA 403(b)(7)

2 Security Benefit Advisor Program SAVE AND CONSOLIDATE DIVERSIFY YOUR PORTFOLIO CREATE DYNAMIC STRATEGIES Security Benefit s Advisor Program allows you to construct your personal path to retirement, leveraging the expertise of more than 25 investment firms, across 35 different strategies, and 120 mutual funds.

3 Security Benefit Everyone will likely travel a different path to retirement, with unique goals and aspirations. But after more than a century of history, we ve learned that many people face similar challenges in reaching their retirement goals. Start Saving Early Many people are not starting to save early enough. Nearly half of workers between the ages of reported they have not saved anything for retirement. Many of us know the earlier we start saving, the easier it will be to reach our goal. But how much more will it cost you to wait? How much will you need to save to have $500,000 at retirement? TOTAL SAVINGS AGE AMOUNT SAVED TOTAL CONTRIBUTIONS EARNINGS 1 AT AGE $327/month $164,808 $335,192 $500, $669/month $256,896 $243,104 $500, $1,557/month $317,628 $187,370 $500, $5,786/month $486,108 $13,892 $500,000 Diversify Your Portfolio Some investment portfolios may be too concentrated. A well-diversified portfolio across asset classes may help balance your risk, but it s also important to choose investments from different companies to avoid overlapping styles. Multi-fund platforms allow you to benefit from the advantages of diversification. Savvy investors diversify investments across fund companies to make the most of a variety of fund managers and investing styles. Plan for a Long Retirement The average retirement age for Americans today is 61 2, down from age 65 just 10 years ago. However, statistics show the typical American couple has a 50 percent chance of at least one person living to age That means most people will need to plan for at least 20 to 30 years of retirement living; your time in retirement may be longer than your personal career. 1 Earnings based upon a 6% hypothetical rate of return and does not represent the actual return of any specific investment. 2 Gallup s Economy and Personal Finance survey, conducted April 4-14, Annuity 2000 mortality table published by the Society of Actuaries.

CONTRIBUTIONS AGE 25 AGE 35 AGE 45 AGE 55 Diversify Your Portfolio Diversifying across asset classes, strategies, and fund companies helps to balance risk and avoid investment style overlap. Plan for a Long Retirement Taking into account longer life expectancies, most people will need to plan for 20 to 30 years of living in retirement. 1 in 2 Men 84 will live to Women 88 will live to Spouses 92 will live to Source: Annuity 2000 mortality table published by the Society of Actuaries. 4

5 Building an investment portfolio for your future takes time, careful planning, and a thoughtful combination of investment strategies. Nearly every client will begin and end at a different point on the retirement path, but along the way you will need flexibility to change strategies, reallocate assets, and diversify your portfolio. For more than 120 years, Security Benefit has been helping people save and plan for the future. Throughout that time, we ve developed a network of partnerships and relationships with some of the most well-known investment firms in the U.S. that are leaders across a variety of different asset classes or very specialized strategies. The Security Benefit Advisor Program places the power of this network into your hands. Security Benefit s Advisor Program is designed to provide you the ability to choose how you ll travel down your own path to retirement, leveraging the expertise of more than 25 investment firms, 120 mutual fund options, and 35 different strategies. Regardless of where you are in the retirement planning and saving process, the Security Benefit Advisor Program can be the vehicle to help you move forward To and Through Retirement.

7 Security Benefit Save and Consolidate Whether you re just beginning your retirement savings plans or need to consolidate assets, the Security Benefit Advisor Program provides you the flexibility to do both. There are three ways the program can help you save and manage your retirement assets. Save on Your Own Traditional IRA The Program allows you to start your own Individual Retirement Account (IRA) with as little as $100 with recurring contributions throughout the year. Your contributions to a traditional IRA are generally tax-deferred. Roth IRAs The Program also allows you to establish a Roth account. Although Roth contributions are not tax deductible, your contributions and earnings are tax-free once you reach age 59½, which can help you limit your overall tax liability during retirement. Save Through Your Employer s Retirement Plan Education and Non-Profit agencies 403(b)(7) School districts and non-profit agencies offer 403(b)(7) retirement plans to help employees save for retirement directly from their paycheck. Typically, there s no fee to participate and your contributions are tax-deferred. Small Businesses SIMPLE or SEP IRA The Savings Investment Match Plan for Employees (SIMPLE) IRA allows small companies to establish and make contributions to their employees retirement accounts. SEP (Simplified Employee Pension) IRAs are basic traditional IRAs established on behalf of the employee, and the employer can make discretionary contributions to the account. Consolidate Assets Retirement Rollovers Saving enough for retirement can be difficult enough. You shouldn t have to spend more time trying to manage multiple retirement accounts from former employers and fund providers. The Security Benefit Advisor Program makes it easy, allowing you to consolidate retirement assets from other plans or accounts into one flexible platform. You can roll over assets into your IRA from: 401(k), 403(b), and 457 accounts Other IRAs SEP/SIMPLE IRAs 7

8 Security Benefit Diversify Your Portfolio Managing your retirement accounts should be easy, simple, and all within one place. More importantly, you need the ability to build your portfolio with investments from talented firms that have excelled within your chosen asset classes or strategies. A well-diversified portfolio combines a good mix of investments from different fund companies that have demonstrated leadership different mutual funds 35+ asset classes and strategies 25+ different fund managers The Diversification Equation A well-diversified portfolio goes beyond one specific asset class or fund company. The Security Benefit Advisor Program is designed to provide you a wellrounded choice of investment options across a large set of sectors and strategies from some of the most popular funds and fund managers within the country. More Choices Asset classes and strategies can change as global economic forces evolve. That s why we work closely with financial advisors to incorporate new and relevant strategies into the fund lineup. And through the relationships we ve developed, we are able to offer more funds in new asset classes and sectors from premier fund companies and highly specialized, niche firms. Rebalance, Reallocate, Reinvest with No Transaction Fees Unlike many traditional fund platforms, which offer a limited choice of fund companies or charge fees to exchange shares between funds, the Security Benefit Advisor Program allows you the freedom to make changes to your portfolio. This allows you to exchange full or partial shares of a fund within the program without a fee. No asset allocation fees No rebalancing fees No fees for withdrawals or required minimum distributions No ticket charges or exchange fees 8

9 Security Benefit Create Dynamic Strategies The Security Benefit Advisor Program is a flexible platform with a full library of investment options across a myriad of asset classes and strategies that allow you to reach your retirement goals. Choose from a single fund or create a custom portfolio with specialized approaches and a global footprint. Diversify Portfolios Go beyond the traditional equity and bond portfolio and construct a portfolio to balance risk across global equity or bond markets. Portfolio Construction U.S. EQUITY Large cap blend Large cap growth Large cap value Mid cap blend Mid cap growth Mid cap value Small cap blend Small cap growth Small cap value FIXED INCOME Bank loan High yield bond Inflation-protected bond Intermediate government bond Intermediate term bond International bond Money market Multi-sector bond Short-term bond MULTI-ASSET Balanced Target date 4 Target risk INTERNATIONAL Emerging markets equity Foreign large blend Foreign large growth Foreign large value World allocation World stock 9 SPECIALTY/ SECTOR Energy Natural resources Precious metals Socially responsive Technology ALTERNATIVES/ NON-TRADITIONAL Commodities Long/Short equity Managed futures Multi-alternative Non-traditional bond Real estate

10 Fund Partners of the Security Benefit Advisor Program 4 The principal value of target date funds is not guaranteed at any time, including at or after the target date, which is the approximate date when investors turn age 65. The funds invest in a broad range of underlying mutual funds that include stocks, bonds, and short-term investments and are subject to the risks of different areas of the market. The funds emphasize potential capital appreciation during the early phases of retirement asset accumulation, balance the need for appreciation with the need for income as retirement approaches, and focus more on income and principal stability during retirement. The funds maintain a substantial allocation to equities both prior to and after the target date, which can result in greater volatility.

11 A well-diversified portfolio combines a good mix of investments across a variety of asset classes from different fund companies that have demonstrated leadership within the market.
