Retirement planning in a bear market
In partnership with:
ABOUT THE EVENT
The introduction of pension freedoms in 2015, coupled with a sustained period of low interest rates, has seen annuities fall out of favour over the past decade. Many advisers have eschewed annuities completely, citing them as a low value option in comparison to drawdowns. However, with markets experiencing significant volatility and annuity rates reaching their highest level in 14 years, this advice may now be misplaced. With regulators starting to focus more closely on retirement income strategies and the FCA’s Consumer Duty rules soon coming into effect, could we soon see a return to favour for annuities?
Whilst not providing the flexibility of drawdown, annuities have the benefit of being a low maintenance source of income for retirees. Given current market volatility, coupled with shifting retirement patterns as well as a rising pension age and the case for a return to favour for annuities has become too significant to ignore.
Join FTAdviser and Legal & General for this one hour webinar as our panel of expert commentators from across the financial advisory sector debate the merits of various retirement income strategies in the current market environment and provide practical examples of appropriate use cases for each.
