Annual report 2017/2018

Connecting the world

In 2017/2018 we've worked hard to widen the global appeal of the profession. 

We've developed our qualifications as a globally sort-after standard, we've lead with authority in key issues of public interest, and we've built our global community of trusted professionals.

We believe that our achievements over the past year show that our members are in higher demand than ever from regulators, employers and influencers world-wide. We plan to build on this this demand over the coming year as we continue to push for progress for the benefit of our members, partners and in the public interest.

    Income drawdown products offer an investment strategy to generate an income in retirement.  However, for those needing to decumulate their capital to provide a sufficient income in retirement, sequencing risk is high.  This is the risk that poor returns are experienced when capital is highest (in the first part of the decumulation phase) and good returns when capital is lowest (in the last part).   It is very difficult to recover from this risk, if it is realised.  This means that income drawdown products are not very resilient for those needing to decumulate their capital.
