Rationale for W-P Annuities
  • People are not only living longer, they also have
    high financial expectations.
  • Average life expectancy for a 65 yr man is 20 yrs
  • If annuities are a long term investment they
    should be invested in suitable assets
  • Provide a good hedge against inflation
  • Equities may outperform gilts in long term
  • However investors must understand the risks and
    have other sources of income

12
Rationale for Fixed Term
  • Investors want a high level of secure income but
    dont want to commit to lifetime annuity
  • Flexibility to change options at end of term
  • Concerned that circumstances / health might
    change
  • Dont want to take unnecessary risks

13
Rationale for Guaranteed DD
  • Long term income products should be invested in
    real assets
  • Provide a good hedge against inflation
  • Equities should outperform gilts in long term
  • Investors want annuity style income but with the
    flexibility of Drawdown
  • Income is important
  • Investors do not want to take unnecessary risks
    with retirement income
  • Priority is protect against risk of fall in
    equity prices

14
Guaranteed DD Products
15
  • Advantages
  • Guaranteed income - longevity insurance without
    requiring annuitisation.
  • Flexibility investment control and lump sum
    death benefit (less 35 tax)
  • Allows equity investment with lock ins
  • Disadvantages
  • Additional costs
  • Investors may be buying something they don't
    really need at an extra cost
  • Age 75 !!!

Retirement Objectives
17
Risk Management
  • Most investors faced with number of risks
  • Risk of dying early / risk of living too long
  • Risk of not having enough income / inflation
  • Investment risk
  • Risk that their circumstances will change
  • No one policy will hedge against all risks
  • Annuity no flexibility no lump sum on death
  • Drawdown flexible but with investment risk

18
Meeting the Objectives

Retirement Planning Key Issues
  • Income is important
  • Everybody needs it some more than others
  • Not black and white
  • Not simply a choice of annuity or drawdown
  • Middle way?
  • Attitude to risk may change with age
  • Less risk as clients get older
  • Many people transition into retirement
  • Phased retirement
  • Combination of products
