Asset Pricing (AAP)
Asset Pricing (AAP) enables insurance carriers to transmit the unit values for underlying funds within variable annuity and life insurance products to distributors on a daily basis. It provides fund-level pricing information, similar to the net asset value for mutual funds, that may be applicable to multiple insurance products within a carrier’s product line.
Using a mainframe or Internet connection, carriers can use AAP to electronically send pricing information to NSCC, which then routes the information to distributors.
