In any case where such Interest Payment Date shall not be a Business Day, then (notwithstanding any other provision of said Indenture or the Notes) payment of such interest need not be made on such date, but may be made on the next succeeding Business Day with the same force and effect as if made on such date, and, if such payment is so made, no interest shall accrue for the period from and after such date. Any such interest not so punctually paid or duly provided for shall forthwith cease to be payable to the registered Holder on the initial record date for such interest payment (March 16 or September 16, as the case may be), and may be paid to the Person in whose name this Note (or one or more Predecessor Securities) is registered at the close of business on a record date for the payment of such Defaulted Interest to be fixed by the Trustee for the Notes, notice whereof shall be given to Holders of Notes not less than 10 days prior to such record date, or may be paid at any time in any other lawful manner not inconsistent with the requirements of any securities exchange on which the Notes may be listed, and upon such notice as may be required by such exchange, all as more fully provided in said Indenture. Payment of the principal, premium, if any, and interest on this Note will be made at the office or agency of the Company maintained for that purpose at the Corporate Trust Office as defined in the Indenture, which is currently in the City of St. Paul, Minnesota, in such coin or currency of the United States of America as at the time of payment is legal tender for payment of public and private debts; provided, however, that at the option of the Company payment of interest may be made (subject to collection) by check mailed to the address of the Person entitled thereto as such address shall appear on the Securities Register.
ADDITIONAL PROVISIONS OF THIS NOTE ARE CONTAINED ON THE REVERSE HEREOF AND SUCH PROVISIONS SHALL HAVE THE SAME EFFECT AS THOUGH FULLY SET FORTH IN THIS PLACE.
Unless the certificate of authentication hereon has been executed by or on behalf of the Trustee for the Notes by manual signature, this Note shall not be entitled to any benefit under the Indenture, or be valid or obligatory for any purpose.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, AMERIPRISE FINANCIAL, INC. has caused this instrument to be duly executed under its corporate seal.

At any time before the Par Call Date, the Notes will be redeemable at a Redemption Price equal to the greater of (1) 100% of the principal amount of the Notes to be redeemed or (2) the sum of the present values of the remaining scheduled payments of principal and interest on the Notes to be redeemed that would be due if the Notes matured on the Par Call Date, not including any portion of such payments of interest accrued as of the Redemption Date, discounted to the Redemption Date on a semi-annual basis (assuming a 360-day year consisting of twelve 30-day months) at the Treasury Rate plus 45 basis points, plus, in each case, accrued and unpaid interest on the Notes to be redeemed to, but excluding, the Redemption Date.

“Comparable Treasury Issue” means the United States Treasury security selected by an Independent Investment Banker that would be utilized, at the time of selection and in accordance with customary financial practice, in pricing new issues of corporate debt securities of comparable maturity to the remaining term of the Notes (assuming, for this purpose, the Notes mature on the Par Call Date).
