1 Financial strength ratings apply to the main life operating companies of Manulife Financial Corporation including Manufacturers Life Insurance Company, John Hancock Life Insurance Company (U.S.A.), John Hancock Life & Health Insurance Company and John Hancock Life Insurance Company of New York. Morningstar DBRS does not rate the U.S. insurance subsidiaries separately. All ratings current as of 12/30/19. 2 Market value recovery equalizer allows the SVGI to make a plan whole for a market value adjustment (MVA) from typically another stable value fund and recover the MVA through the plan’s semi-annual crediting rate. 3 Portability to a new recordkeeper requires that recordkeeper to enter into a fund distribution agreement with John Hancock.
A fund’s investment objectives, risks, charges, and expenses should be considered carefully before investing. Refer to the Massachusetts contract form for more details about the John Hancock Stable Value Guaranteed Income Fund.

There is no guarantee that any investment strategy will achieve its objectives. All investing involves risk including possible loss of principal.
Stable value portfolios typically invest in a diversified portfolio of bonds and enter into wrapper agreements with financial companies to prevent fluctuations in their share prices. Although a portfolio will seek to maintain a stable value, there is a risk that it will not be able to do so, and participants may lose their investment if both the Fund's investment portfolio and the wrapper provider fail.
