As its name implies, this is an account, which is separately maintained from the general accounts of a life insurance company. The separate account facilitates the management of the non-guarantee insurance product funds. The maintenance of separate accounts enables insurance companies to modify their investment strategies, while not adversely affecting general accounts funds. In Canada, this is known as segregated account. See investment-sensitive life insurance and general account.
