Pensions Conference Webinar: Decumulation in pension plans via pooled annuities

Tuesday 30 June 2020 12:00 - 13:00

Converting lifetime savings into a lifelong income are a fundamental part of pensions. Yet this is often not part of DC pension plans. One possibility is to offer a post-retirement, pooled annuity option, perhaps structured as a Collective Defined Contribution (CDC) plan, to retirees.  Pooled annuities convert lump-sum savings to a life annuity by collectively pooling longevity risk.  They may be a more cost-effective, flexible, in-house solution than buying insured annuities.
