Annuities: a private solution to longevity risk
Its title may appear a bit facetious, but the latest issue of SwissRe's Sigma is anything but. It contains a comprehensive overview of the challenges to capital based retirement provision arising from increasing longevity. The prime focus of the publication is on insurers and insurance products, naturally, but most of its considerations and precepts are directly applicable to non-insurance pensions providers. A very worthwhile read for everyone in the retirement business!
