    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.
