      • Cass Event – New Thinking about Deferred Annuities

        Cass Business School, Executive Education Facilities 200 Aldersgate St, London EC1A 4HD
        21 June 2019

        Spaces available

        Our motivation for discussing this important subject comes from some exciting recent research which has analysed the impact of behavioural factors on the decision to purchase an annuity. This work has shown that behavioural factors can explain the well-known low demand for immediate annuities but this research also identifies an important opportunity in relation to deferred annuities (DA). The research suggests that these factors lead to positive incentives to purchase a DA and that, for longer deferred periods, a DA could be an attractive product for both consumers and insurers.
