Equity-Indexed-Annuity Performance Ratings Available Free at MCP Premium Website

FULLERTON, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- December 6, 2005 -- A new, free online service from MCP Premium software removes the guesswork about how different equity-indexed annuities may perform in different markets. Advisors can now easily see which EIA products are more likely to consistently perform better than their peers. It is the industry's first service of this kind.

The site, http://mcppremium.com/mcp_adv_ratings.htm, gives letter grades for dozens of equity-indexed annuities, rating their performance in bear and bull markets and over the last 10 years. Overall performance ranking is also assigned. Rankings incorporate measurements of beta and correlation coefficient on top of return.

"This ground-breaking service gives financial professionals a quick snapshot of the performance characteristics of some of the most popular EIAs," said MCP Premium president Mitchell Maynard, who conceived the idea.

The EIA Rating Service is free to anyone who fills out a brief online registration form.
