Hey Ray,

There is no significant difference in statistical outcomes between annual (rolling 12-month periods) and monthly -- as long as everything is de-annualized properly.
What does 'de-annualized' mean? How do you do that?

IIRC, we already have determined that IULs use point-to-point annual periods on the policy anniversary date. That means that person A goes Jan-Jan and person B goes Feb-Feb. So every month is an anniversary. So to do it accurately we have to compute rolling 12-month periods.
Some do, and that's what I had assumed we were going to use to compare.

And it's much easier to generate the data and charts using monthly figures (properly de-annualized) than using every rolling 12-month figures.
My understanding is we are going from 1/1/75 through 21/31/2012, yes?
• 27 years accumulation on an initial $10,000 lump sum, 10 years full distribution on an even payment annually.
• Each anniversary, the IUL records a 0% floor, 12% cap, minus the 37 year average internal fee burden (yet to be determined,) on the S&P500.
• The naked S&P buy & hold takes the real annual P&L on the face price, and adds 2.75% for dividends (yet to be confirmed as average,) and takes a 1% fee haircut each anniversary.
• (Which specific product are you intending to buy, by the way?)
