2 Defined Contribution Pension Plan Defined Benefit Pension Plan GIF Select IncomePlusDefined Contribution Pension PlanDefined Benefit Pension PlanPre-defined contributions throughout working yearsPre-defined benefit in retirementTypically, investor has fund choiceNo fund choice allowed by investorsNot inflation protectedOften provides inflation protectionInvestor is responsible for turning savings into incomeThe plan generates income in retirementIncome for as long as the savings lastIncome for lifeYears ago, some lucky Canadians had defined benefit pension plans, but those are nearly extinct now. Most often, large unions and government workers are fortunate enough to have defined benefit pension plans. The big selling point for these plans is that the benefit in retirement is known – typically the benefit is based on a formula of years of service and age. The income amount never decreases, but often has some type of inflation protection built in, so income can increase.With defined contribution pension plans, the end benefit isn’t known. Usually, the employee and employer contribute to the plan during working years, then the employee takes the accumulated amount and removes it from the plan to purchase some type of income stream. Depending on the product chosen, the income may go down in retirement.These days, having any pension plan at all is a big advantage as many Canadians have no employer sponsored retirement benefits at all
3 The right fit for your portfolio Guaranteed Lifetime Income SourcesNon-Guaranteed Income SourcesProduct CategoriesQPP & OAS Defined Benefit (DB) PensionsAnnuitiesGMWB – Guaranteed Minimum Withdrawal BenefitSWPDefined Contribution PensionsMutual FundsSegregated Fund ContractsStocksBondsBank or insurance GICs*Income ProtectionProtectedProtected & VariableVariableParticipation in MarketsNon-ParticipatingParticipatingWhen determining the right mix of products within the three product categories for an optimal Retirement Sustainability Quotient (RSQ), we need to consider both guaranteed and non-guaranteed sources of income.The Guaranteed Income Sources include all sources of guaranteed lifetime income such as annuities, defined benefit pension plans, and government pensions such as CPP & OAS. These investments are completely secure and can provide guaranteed income for life. These investments do no participate in the market and cannot take advantage of market growth, however, on the flip side the market volatility has no impact on these investments.Guaranteed income for lifePre-determined amount of income each monthMarket volatility protectionInterest rate fluctuation protectionNot liquidNo control over how assets are investedAnother guaranteed income source is a GMWB – These are hybrid products – that provide downside protection while allowing client to potentially increase their income by participating in market growth.Growth potential to help income keep up with inflationControl over how assets are investedPredictable, sustainable and potentially increasing income streamGuaranteed income for life – for IncomePlus, available at January 1st age 65 for (January 1st in the year the younger spouse turns age 65 for the Joint Life Payout Option)Non-Guaranteed Income Sources –Traditional Products that offer Systematic Withdrawal Plan to provide an ongoing income stream. These products are completely variable and most participate in the markets, with the exception of a GIC which is a fixed interest rate.SWP offer::Long term growth potentialCan keep up with inflationFlexible monthly incomeInvestment can continue to grow if performing at a higher rate than the rate of withdrawalIncome not guaranteed3
4 Retirement risks and challenges INFLATIONDecrease buying power of savingsLONGEVITYOutlive life savingsVOLATILITYPoor market returnsHEALTH CONCERNSCan you afford to become ill?Canadian’s born into the “baby boom” generation (or as we’ve seen earlier today generation I), who are approaching or already in retirement, face risks and challenges that differ from previous generations. Accordingly, these present and future retirees need to plan carefully.Inflation over the long-term, inflation can significantly erode buying power (a basket of goods that cost $100 today will cost $180 in just 20 years from nowLongevity compared to previous generations, both male and female Canadians can expect to live longer lives and could spend as much time in retirement as they did workingVolatility if an investor experiences poor market returns early in retirement this may have a dramatic impact on how much income they can continue to take or how long it will last.Health can boomers afford to get ill? What happens if your client needs to withdraw a large lump sum form their investment portfolio to pay for medical treatment – can they still afford to retire?Asset allocation can help with some of these risks, but it can not guarantee that your clients savings will provide them with sustainable income that can last throughout your retirement years.44
5 The Retirement Risk Zone – 5 to 10 years before and after retirement ACCUMULATION (SAVINGS)RETIREMENT DATERETIREMENT (PAYOUT)RETIREMENT RISK ZONEKey Statement:During retirement, the interplay between an investor’s rate of withdrawal and their Sequence of Returns can have a dramatic impact on a portfolio’s overall ability to last.TRANSITION TO NEXT SLIDE:In the next few slides, I am going to illustrate how a portfolio that experiences poor early returns can run out of money during retirement, whereas a portfolio experiencing strong early returns can last for many more years and maintain a high market valueLet’s look at the case of two individuals who retire at different times, with all other factors being exactly the same, and how the Sequence of Returns their portfolios experience in those crucial first years produce two very different outcomesNext SlideThe period of time where you are most vulnerable to market downturnsAffects how much you retire with and how long it will last55
6 Create your own sustainable retirement income Before I get into discussing Manulife’s GIF Select IncomePlus, I want to talk to you about a major change that has been happening over the recent years in numerous companies throughout North America and one that may ultimately affect many of you who will be transitioning into retirement in the next yearsIt was always said that Defined Benefit Pension Plans were the ultimate reward to an employee for many years of service by providing a guaranteed level of income along with the security of knowing the money would last as long as they livedHowever, what we’ve known as the traditional type pension plan is quickly fading into the sunset as more and more of the large and mid-sized corporations are shifting their pension strategies to put the responsibility of creating a sustainable retirement income onto the employeesSince Defined Benefit Pension Plans require the employer to fund any shortfalls, the risk of market volatility, along with the fact that many retired Canadians are beginning to live longer, healthier lives, are increasing the costs to these companies and many of them have decided to switch to Defined Contribution Pension Plans.Defined Contribution Pension Plans have pre-determined employee contributions, as well as contributions made by the employerHowever, these plans fail to offer one very important benefit – a guaranteed income for lifeTRANSITION TO THE NEXT SLIDE:With the demise of the Defined Benefit Pension Plan, investors are looking for a solution that will help them to create a predictable, sustainable, and potentially increasing income that will last for life

The Lifetime Withdrawal Amount becomes available on January 1st of the year the annuitant or the younger of the annuitant and the Joint Life (if applicable) turns age 65.The Joint Life must be the spouse (as defined by the Income Tax Act (Canada) ) of the annuitant. Exceeding the withdrawal thresholds may have a negative impact on future income payments. Maturity and Death Benefit Guarantees reduced proportionally for withdrawals. Maturity Guarantee available on December 31st of the annuitant’s 100th year or earlier where required by legislation. Withdrawals may be subject to fees.

19 IncomePlus in action – Case studies The best way to see the real value in this product is to take a look at it in actionLet me walk you through two of the most common scenarios:Income Later andIncome NowAnd we’ll see what they look like in both an up and down marketNext Slide
20 GIF Select IncomePlus – Income Later IncomePlus was the first product of its kind in CanadaFeatures that could benefit pre-retirees:5% Income bonusAutomatic resets to lock-in market gains every 3 years100% Death Benefit Guarantee (proportionally reduced by withdrawals)For pre-retirees who are planning for their retirement, IncomePlus is a great solution as it offers these investors a way to grow their guaranteed income in two ways:The Income bonus that is guaranteed each year income is deferred, even if markets are down, andThe IncomePlus Reset which can lock-in the potential market growth every 3 years when markets are performing wellThe bonus is available each year following the initial deposit to the IncomePlus Series, provided no withdrawals are taken. Bonuses are not cash deposits, they increase the basis for calculating the guaranteed income.
21 GIF Select IncomePlus – Income Later Income Later – How it worksIncome Later – How it worksLet’s first look at a case of an investor who is years away from their retirement, and is looking for income later
22 Income later Carol, age 45 20 years away from retirement $200,000 in non-registered assetsCarol is 45 years old and 20 years away from retirement; she has saved $200,000 in non-registered assetsNext SlideAssumes a Single Life Payout Option

Hypothetical portfolio consists of 60% Globe Canadian Equity Peer Index and 40% Globe Canadian Bond Peer Index. Calendar year returns from 1989 to Returns have been adjusted for an annual IncomePlus Fee of 0.65%. Performance histories are not indicative of future performance. Assumes a Single Life Payout Option.
24 Income later: Down market scenario $400,000Portfolio Market Value$10,000 Income bonusGWB Benefit Base5% Bonuses for 20 years$20,000 LWA$200,000In this example, Carol’s initial deposit establishes a GWB Benefit Base of $200,000.Even in a down market, Carol's GWB Benefit Base grows to $400,000 through the annual Income bonus of $10,000 for the first 20 years.That’s a 100% increase in the guaranteed income!With the 20 years of Income bonuses, the annual LWA available to Carol January 1st the year she turns 65 will be $20,000 (five per cent of $400,000) for LIFEKey Statement:Although Carol’s investment portfolio is actually worth less than her initial deposit of $200,000 by the time she turns 65, the income bonuses she received for those 20 years have resulted in her GWB Benefit Base doubling to $400,000 providing her with a $20,000 income guaranteed for lifeTRANSITION TO NEXT SLIDE:In this case, the markets never performed well enough for Carol’s investments to grow over the 20 year period.

25 GIF Select IncomePlus – Income now Income Now – How it worksIncome Now – How it worksFor investors who are now moving into the income phase, or for those already drawing a retirement income, IncomePlus guarantees an income for life available January 1st in the year the annuitant or the younger of the annuitant and the Joint Life (if applicable) turn age 55This Lifetime Withdrawal Amount will protect them from down markets as the income they receive will be guaranteed for as long as they live, and with the Joint Life Payout Option, can guarantee the payments continue onto their spouse once they pass awayIf markets perform well over time, the IncomePlus Reset will help to lock-in the gains and potentially increase the Lifetime Withdrawal Amount for future years as well as increase the Death Benefit Guarantee
26 IncomePlus and RRIFsThe previous examples showed you some scenarios of how IncomePlus can work with your non-registered assets, and many of you will most likely use your RRSP’s as a major source for the income you will need at retirement. So let me now show you how powerful IncomePlus is inside your RRSP and RRIF and how it can provide you with an income for lifeOnce you convert your RRSP into a RRIF (mandatory at age 71) legislation requires you to withdraw a certain amount of money from your RRIF each year based on the previous year’s end market value and your ageEach year the RRIF Minimum percentage is increased and goes as high as 20% per yearAs years go by, the RRIF minimum may exceed the amount IncomePlus will guarantee
27 RRIF Minimum Schedule 2010 Age General 71** 7.38% 75 7.85% 80 8.75% 85 10.33%9013.62%94 or older20.00%Have a look at the RRIF minimum schedule to understand how this increasing percentage may at some point exceed the Lifetime Withdrawal AmountOne of the reasons Income Plus works extremely well inside a RRIF is that it will pay you the HIGHER of the RRIF Minimum for that year OR the 5% LWA (5% assuming income is elected between ages 65 and 74 and a Single Life Payout option has been chosen)The Lifetime Withdrawal Amount may be exceeded as long as the RRIF minimum is not exceededNote that the GIF Select RRIF minimum amount is based on the contract as a whole as is prorated across all Series should the client hold another Series with their GIF Select contract.With Locked-In money, you cannot exceed the legislative maximums, however there is an option for you to elect a Life Annuity from Manulife to solve this issue (speak to your Advisor for more info)Source: Canada Revenue Agency** To calculate minimum annual withdrawals for below age 71, use the formula 1/(90–age).
28 Example: IncomePlus inside a RRIF Client aged 65 decides to invest his RRSP in IncomePlus and convert it to a RRIF in the following year and begin withdrawalsAmountDeposit$500,000Income bonus added December 31$25,000Lifetime Withdrawal Amount (LWA)$26,250 for lifeLet’s look at the case of someone who has been investing his RRSP in IncomePlus and then converting into a RRIF to begin withdrawals in the following yearBased on a Single Life Payout Option
29 IncomePlus: RRIF income for life RRIF MinimumMarket value*LWA (5%)Income stream (greater of LWA or RRIF minimum)Advantage of IncomePlus in a RRIF$40,700(MV of $550,00 X 7.4% RRIF Minimum at 72)$26,250(5% LWA of $500, % Income Bonus)When IncomePlus is held within a RRIF, your client can benefit in 3 ways.#1 In the years where the RRIF Minimum exceeds the guaranteed income, IncomePlus pays up to that RRIF minimum without affecting the 5% Lifetime Withdrawal AmountAt age 65, you are eligible to receive the full 5% Lifetime Withdrawal Amount which actually exceeds the RRIF minimum in those early years#2 Once the amount the government requires your client to withdraw exceeds the 5% Lifetime Withdrawal Amount, Manulife will pay the higher RRIF minimum to your client every year that is the case,for example, in this example at year 72 your LWA would be $26,250, but you are required to take and can take your RRIF minimum is 7.48% or $40,7000 based on the Market value as of December 31 of the previous year. If your market value continued to increase, you could see your RRIF minimum also increase, and you would be able to take the greater of the LWA or your RRIF minimum as you can see at age 72.#3 Should the investments begin to decrease in value as is illustrated at the right side of this graph when the client is 80, due to the withdrawal schedule and market performance, and the RRIF minimum becomes lower than what the 5% Lifetime Withdrawal Amount is calculated at, Manulife will again pay out the higher value, the LWA, even if the market value reaches $0If the investments were to be depleted over time due to increased RRIF Minimums and poor performance, IncomePlus would continue to pay $26,250 for the life of the client – EVEN WITH A MARKET VALUE OF $0With IncomePlus, Manulife will guarantee your clients receive the higher of the RRIF minimum OR the Lifetime Withdrawal Amount (in this example we assume a 5% LWA percentage)Every dollar that is withdrawn from your registered accounts are subject to 100% inclusion rates and taxed just like your regular incomeNext SlideAge 65Age 72Age 72Age 80Age 80For illustration purposes only. In the years where the RRIF minimum remains below the guaranteed income, the LWA continues to be paid at an annual 5% withdrawal rate. Results may vary with market conditions and resets. Exceeding the IncomePlus withdrawal and RRIF minimum thresholds may have a negative impact on future payments. *Used in the calculation to determine RRIF minimum. Assumes a Single Life Payout and assumes the elected LWA payout percentage is 5% Assumes no withdrawal is made in the first year and that a full 5% bonus is applied in the first year.,.

32 Important information Bonuses are not cash deposits; they increase the basis for calculating guaranteed income. The bonus is available each year following the initial deposit to the IncomePlus Series, provided no withdrawals are taken. For all deposits to IncomePlus in the first calendar year, the bonus is pro-rated based on the month of the initial deposit.Exceeding the withdrawal thresholds may have a negative impact on future income payments. The Lifetime Withdrawal Amount (LWA) becomes available on January 1st of the year the annuitant or the younger of the annuitant and the Joint Life (if applicable) turns age 65. The Joint Life must be the spouse (as defined by the Income Tax Act (Canada)) of the annuitant at the time of election of the Joint Life Payout Option. Only one person can be named as the Joint Life and may not be changed.Withdrawals proportionally decrease Maturity and Death Benefit Guarantees.
