Annuities - UK - August 2012
“The annuity market will be required to undergo some changes in order to keep pace with the changing pensions industry as a whole. Regulation will be a key factor in framing these changes as the industry will have to adapt to a new regulatory landscape over the next year or so. Providers must be careful not to take annuity business for granted. Currently annuities are the only option for a large portion of the population, but with people working longer and saving less in pension pots and the development of annuity alternatives, providers could be forced to adapt their business models.”
– Stephanie Seenan, Financial Services Analyst
