The Global Balanced SG Index (the “Index”) is the exclusive property of SG Americas Securities, LLC (SG Americas Securities, LLC, together with
its affiliates, “SG”). SG has contracted with [S&P Opco, LLC (a subsidiary of S&P Dow Jones Indices LLC] (“S&P”) to maintain and calculate the
Index. “SG Americas Securities, LLC”, “SGAS”, “Société Générale”, “SG”, “Société Générale Indices”, “SGI”, and “Global Balanced SG
Index” (collectively, the “SG Marks”) are trademarks or service marks of SG. SG has licensed use of the SG Marks to Life Insurance Company of
the Southwest (“LICS”) for use in a fixed indexed annuity offered by LICS (the “Fixed Indexed Annuity”). SG's sole contractual relationship with
LICS is to license the Index and the SG Marks to LICS. None of SG, S&P, or other third party licensor (collectively, the “Index Parties”) to SG is
acting, or has been authorized to act, as an agent of LICS or has in any way sponsored, promoted, solicited, negotiated, endorsed, offered, sold,
issued, supported, structured or priced any Fixed Indexed Annuity or provided investment advice to LICS.
No Index Party has passed on the legality or suitability of, or the accuracy or adequacy of the descriptions and disclosures relating to, the Fixed
Indexed Annuity, including those disclosures with respect to the Index. The Index Parties make no representation whatsoever, whether express or
implied, as to the advisability of purchasing, selling or holding any product linked to the Index, including the Fixed Indexed Annuity, or the ability of
the Index to meet its stated objectives, including meeting its target volatility. The Index Parties have no obligation to, and will not, take the needs of
LICS or any annuitant into consideration in determining, composing or calculating the Index. The selection of the Index as a crediting option under a
Fixed Indexed Annuity does not obligate LICS or SG to invest annuity payments in the components of the Index.
THE INDEX PARTIES MAKE NO REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY WHATSOEVER, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, AND HEREBY
EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, THOSE OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A
PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR USE), WITH RESPECT TO THE INDEX OR ANY DATA INCLUDED THEREIN OR RELATING THERETO, AND IN
PARTICULAR DISCLAIM ANY GUARANTEE OR WARRANTY EITHER AS TO THE QUALITY, ACCURACY, TIMELINESS AND/OR
COMPLETENESS OF THE INDEX OR ANY DATA INCLUDED THEREIN, THE RESULTS OBTAINED FROM THE USE OF THE INDEX AND/OR
THE CALCULATION OR COMPOSITION OF THE INDEX, OR CALCULATIONS MADE WITH RESPECT TO ANY FIXED INDEXED ANNUITY AT
ANY PARTICULAR TIME ON ANY PARTICULAR DATE OR OTHERWISE. THE INDEX PARTIES SHALL NOT BE LIABLE (WHETHER IN
NEGLIGENCE OR OTHERWISE) TO ANY PERSON FOR ANY ERROR OR OMISSION IN THE INDEX OR IN THE CALCULATION OF THE
INDEX, AND THE INDEX PARTIES ARE UNDER NO OBLIGATION TO ADVISE ANY PERSON OF ANY ERROR THEREIN, OR FOR ANY
INTERRUPTION IN THE CALCULATION OF THE INDEX. NO INDEX PARTY SHALL HAVE ANY LIABILITY TO ANY PARTY FOR ANY ACT OR
FAILURE TO ACT BY THE INDEX PARTIES IN CONNECTION WITH THE DETERMINATION, ADJUSTMENT OR MAINTENANCE OF THE
INDEX. WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING, IN NO EVENT SHALL AN INDEX PARTY HAVE ANY LIABILITY FOR ANY DIRECT DAMAGES,
LOST PROFITS OR SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, INDIRECT OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, EVEN IF NOTIFIED OF THE
POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
No Index Party is a fiduciary or agent of any purchaser, seller or holder of a Fixed Indexed Annuity. None of SG, S&P, or any third party licensor
shall have any liability with respect to the Fixed Indexed Annuity in which an interest crediting option is based is on the Index, nor for any loss
relating to the Fixed Indexed Annuity, whether arising directly or indirectly from the use of the Index, its methodology, any SG Mark or otherwise.
Obligations to make payments under the Fixed Indexed Annuities are solely the obligation of LICS.
In calculating the performance of the Index, SG deducts a maintenance fee of 0.50% per annum on the level of the Index, and fixed transaction and
replication costs, each calculated and deducted on a daily basis. The transaction and replication costs cover, among other things, rebalancing and
replication costs. The total amount of transaction and replication costs is not predictable and will depend on a number of factors, including the
leverage of the Index, which may be as high as 200%, the performance of the indexes underlying the Index, market conditions and the changes in
the market states, among other factors. The transaction and replication costs, which are increased by the Index's leverage, and the maintenance
fee will reduce the potential positive change in the Index and increase the potential negative change in the Index. While the volatility control applied
by the Index may result in less fluctuation in rates of return as compared to indices without volatility controls, it may also reduce the overall rate of
return as compared to products not subject to volatility controls.
