Insurance Advisory Service April 2012

The special research article in the current issue of Insurance Advisory Service adds another chapter to our ongoing coverage of the retirement market, initiated in our Household Balance Sheet Report research and continued in the research feature published in the Summer 2011 Fee-based Report which focused on the distributor aspects. This time we turn our attention to the products and solutions populating the payout phase product continuum. The insurers’ current focus on de-risking has brought about a rapid de-emphasis of the GWB product line resulting in a vibrant and fluid payout phase product landscape, one with a finer competitive balance and product innovation expected to continue for years to come. The article is a must-read for financial services manufacturers and distributors keen on monitoring product and competitive developments in the retirement market.
