Empire Life will endeavour to ensure the information presented is accurate and updated, but will not be held liable for inaccuracies. A description of the key features of the individual variable insurance contract is contained in the Information Folder for the product being considered. Any amount that is allocated to a Guaranteed Investment Fund is invested at the risk of the contract owner and may increase or decrease in value. ** Annual Compound Returns: Returns under 1 year are simple rates of return.
