1 Making Sense of Market Volatility: Retirement Planning Strategies for the Everyday Investor October,
2 Market Ups and Downs Recent news is full of anxiety-causing developments: Credit crunch Bank failures Wall Street bankruptcies Government intervention Stock market volatility
3 What Does It Mean to Me? Most people have a personal stake in the health of our financial markets. For many of us, retirement savings are invested in stock, bond, and cash equivalent investment options. When the market drops, you could see your retirement account balance drop with it. A drop in the market raises some questions: Should I stop saving? Are my investments safe? What should I do with my retirement account?
4 Thinking Long Term Retirement planning is a long-term project. We don t know the full impact of recent events, but we do know the outcome of similar events in the past. Buying or selling investments in response to day-to-day market fluctuations can cost you in the long run.
5 An Emotional Reaction Can Cost You September 29, 2008 The Dow Jones Industrial average records its largest one-day point drop to date.* September 30, 2008 The Dow Jones Industrial average records its third largest one-day point gain to date.* Investors who cashed out missed the bounce back and the opportunity to regain some lost value. *
6 Adopting a Long-Term View If you missed the ten best days of the stock market in last 20 years your total return would be reduced from 10.2% to 7.6% Source: Bloomberg, S&P 500 returns Sept. 18, 1988 through Sept. 17, 2008, all returns expressed as total returns.

7 Investing for the Long Term Growth of $1,000: March 1987 to July 2008 $20, $15, $10, Index Consumer Price Index 91-Day Treasury Bills Lehman Brothers Aggregate Bond Index S&P 500 Index S&P MidCap 400 Index Russell 2000 Index MSCI EAFE Index Measures Inflation Cash Equivalents Bonds Large-Cap Stocks Mid-Cap Stocks Small-Cap Stocks International Stocks As of July 1, 2008 $15,324 $8,529 $5, $- $ 6,704 $ 5,285 $ 4,447 $ 2,742 $ 2,010 Mar-87 Mar-88 Mar-89 Mar-90 Mar-91 Mar-92 Mar-93 Mar-94 Mar-95 Mar-96 Mar-97 Mar-98 Mar-99 Mar-00 Mar-01 Mar-02 Mar-03 Mar-04 Mar-05 Mar-06 Mar-07 Mar-08 Source: Standard & Poor s, July For illustrative purposes only.

Bonds can offer fixed principal and yield when held to maturity. Index performance does not represent any particular securities product. You cannot invest directly in an index. Past performance is not a guarantee of future results.
8 Index Definitions Consumer Price Index (CPI) The CPI is an index which measures the price changes in consumer goods and services such as gasoline, food and automobiles. 91-Day Treasury Bills U.S. Treasury securities are guaranteed as to the timely payment of principal and interest if held to maturity. Fund shares are neither issued nor guaranteed by the U.S. Government. Lehman Brothers Aggregate Bond Index The Lehman Brothers Aggregate Bond Index is an unmanaged index representative of the broad bond market and is composed of government and corporate bonds, mortgage-backed bonds and asset-backed bonds. S&P 500 Index The S&P 500 Index is an unmanaged index of the 500 largest common stocks (in terms of market value), weighted by market capitalization and considered representative of the broad stock market.

MSCI EAFE Index The MSCI EAFE Index is an unmanaged index representing the developed markets outside North America Europe, Australasia and the Far East.
9 The Case for Long-Term Investing Market Downturns... If you were invested in the S&P 500 Index between August and December 1987, you would have experienced a loss of 25%. Between July and October 1990, there was a 15% drop in the S&P 500 Index. From March 2000 to October 2002, the S&P 500 Index dropped 41%.... and Market Recoveries If you had remained invested until July 1990, you would have experienced 44% growth. But from then to October 1993, the S&P 500 Index rose 54%. But from then until October 2005, it experienced a total return of 36%. Source: Compiled by Great-West Retirement Services from Yahoo Finance, S&P 500 Historical Chart, 2008 Past performance is not a guarantee or prediction of future results. An index is not professionally managed, does not have a defined investment objective, and does not incur fees or expenses. Therefore, performance of an index fund will generally be less than its benchmark index. You cannot invest directly in an index.
10 Steps You Can Take to Manage Risk
11 Preparing for Uncertain Markets Tools for Managing Risk Asset Allocation/Diversification* Dollar cost averaging* Rebalancing* * Diversification of an investment portfolio, dollar-cost averaging and rebalancing do not ensure the participant a profit nor will they protect against loss in a declining market. Investors should consider their financial ability to continue a dollar-cost averaging plan during periods of fluctuating price levels.
12 Asset Allocation The practice of spreading your investments across multiple asset classes (stocks, bonds, and cash equivalents). Helps reduce risk and smooth out market s ups and downs. Potentially increases investment results. Changes over time to reflect your evolving risk tolerance. *Diversification of an investment portfolio does not assure a profit and does not protect against loss in declining markets.
13 Asset Allocation: Know Your Investor Profile Your risk tolerance Plan Your time horizon Your investor profile
14 Asset Allocation: Choose an Asset Allocation Model Aggressive Profile* Moderately Aggressive Profile* Moderate Profile* Moderately Conservative Profile* Conservative Profile* * FOR ILLUSTRATIVE PURPOSES ONLY. Intended to illustrate possible investment portfolio allocations that represent an investment strategy based on risk and return. This is not intended as financial planning or investment advice.
15 Asset Allocation: Choose Investments that Match Your Profile Potentially Higher Risk/Reward Investment Asset Classes Small-Cap Domestic Stock 1 International Stock 2 Mid-Cap Domestic Stock 3 Large-Cap Domestic Stock Balanced Bond 4 Cash Equivalent Potentially Lower Risk/Reward Fixed 1. Equity securities of companies with relatively small market capitalization may be more volatile than securities of larger, more established companies. 2. Foreign investments involve special risks, including currency fluctuations and political developments. 3. Medium sized companies may suffer more significant losses as well as realize more substantial growth than larger capitalized, more established issuers. 4. A bond fund's yield, share price and total return change daily and are based on changes in interest rates, market conditions, economic and political news and the quality and maturity of its investments. In general, bond prices fall when interest rates rise and vice versa.
16 Dollar-Cost Averaging* A proven technique to reduce timing risk of entering stock market A simple, systematic investment approach You Invest fixed dollar amount at regular intervals As a result, you buy more shares when prices are low, fewer shares when prices rise. You are doing this now with your Plan contributions! * Dollar-cost averaging does not ensure the participant a profit nor will it protect against loss in a declining market. Investors should consider their financial ability to continue a dollar-cost averaging plan during periods of fluctuating price levels.
17 Hypothetical Investment Using Dollar-Cost Averaging Amount Price Number Month Invested per Share of Shares January $600 $20 30 February March April Total $2,400 $ Average Price per Share Sum of Prices $114 Number of Purchases 4 Average Price per Share $28.50 Average Cost per Share Total Amount Invested $2,400 Number of Shares Purchased 90 Average Cost per Share $26.67 Dollar-cost averaging does not ensure the participant a profit nor will it protect against loss in a declining market. Investors should consider their financial ability to continue a dollar-cost averaging plan during periods of fluctuating price levels.
18 Rebalancing* A feature of your Plan s Web site & KeyTalk Brings your investment allocation mix back to its original target To maintain a pre-determined allocation among a fixed mix of investments carefully selected to meet investors long-term objective Rebalance accounts once, quarterly, semi-annually or annually *Rebalancer does not assure a profit and does not protect against loss in declining markets. Investors should consider their financial ability to continue the Rebalancer feature during periods of fluctuating price levels.
19 Answering Your Questions
20 Questions on Mutual Funds Q: How are mutual funds structured? A: Mutual funds are generally more diversified investments than individual stocks that may help you reduce your investment risk, as they are generally invested in several underlying investments. Because they are invested in several underlying investments, exposure to losses in any one investment that may have exposure, such as Lehman Brothers fund, should be limited.
21 Questions on Mutual Funds Q: What happens if a mutual fund company that I am invested with goes under? A: A mutual fund is owned by the fund shareholders, not the company managing it. For instance, having a mutual fund with Lehman Brothers may only mean that they are managing the fund, not necessarily that you are invested in Lehman Brothers stock.
22 Questions on Mutual Funds Q: Is my money invested in mutual funds protected? A: Mutual fund assets are kept in a custodial account, where they are protected from claims by creditors if the holding or managing company files for bankruptcy. Mutual fund assets are also generally made up of a variety of investments, so your mutual fund investment could already be diversified, and therefore, may not suffer as much impact.
23 Questions on Mutual Funds Q: Are my funds covered by FDIC insurance? A: No, they are not. However, there are regulations in place that can protect your assets like the Investment Company Act of 1940 which includes regulations related to the structure and operations of mutual funds. It requires that mutual funds maintain thorough books and records, safeguard their portfolio securities and file semi-annual reports with the SEC.
24 What If Great-West Is Affected? Q: What is the level of exposure I have in my defined contribution plan with Great-West? A: Generally, tax-qualified defined contribution retirement plan assets are required to be held in trust for the exclusive benefit of participants. These assets are not subject to creditors of the sponsoring organization. Plan participants may have exposure to market fluctuations based on their current investment allocations. For more information on your investment allocations, please contact your (Registered Representative/Plan Sponsor) or visit the Plan s Web site.» (phone number)» (web address)
25 What If My Employer Is Affected? Q: Do I have protection if my employer incurs similar financial problems as AIG? A: Tax-qualified retirement plan assets are required to be held in trust for the exclusive benefit of participants. These assets are not subject to creditors of the sponsoring organization. Your defined contribution plan will not be affected by your company's financial situation unless you are eligible and have allocated some of your portfolio into your employer s company stock, or if your asset allocation has significant exposure to your employer s stock.
26 The Bottom Line Don t react emotionally to market volatility. Continue with your long-term strategy. Make sure your asset allocation approach fits your goals and risk tolerance. Continue to invest to capitalize on dollar cost averaging. Rebalance your portfolio, if necessary, to make sure it s in line with your strategy. (plan web site) (KeyTalk number)
