Fixed index annuities are not a direct investment in the stock market. They are long term insurance products with guarantees backed by the issuing company. They provide the potential for interest to be credited based in part on the performance of specific indices, without the risk of loss of premium due to market downturns or fluctuation. Although fixed index annuities guarantee no loss of premium due to market downturns, deductions from your accumulation value for additional optional benefit riders or strategy fees associated with allocations to enhanced crediting methods could exceed interest credited to the accumulation value, which would result in loss of premium. They may not be appropriate for all clients. Interest credits to a fixed index annuity will not mirror the actual performance of the relevant index.

In no event shall Morgan Stanley have any liability for any special, punitive, indirect or consequential damages including lost profits, even if notified of the possibility of such damages.

Under no circumstances may any person or entity claim any affiliation with Morgan Stanley without the prior written permission of Morgan Stanley.
In calculating the performance of the Index, Morgan Stanley deducts, on a daily basis, a servicing cost of 0.50% per annum. This reduces the positive change or increase the negative change in the Index level and thus decreases the return of any product linked to the Index. The volatility control calculation applied by Morgan Stanley as part of the Index's methodology may decrease the Index's performance and thus the return of any product linked to the Index. In addition, because the volatility control calculation is expected to reduce the overall volatility of the Index, it will also reduce the cost of hedging certain products linked to the Index.
