monthly analysis of annuities and gilt yields


Annuity rate changes are closely linked to the 15-year gilt yields and ss a general rule a 30 basis point rise in yields would increase annuities by 3.0% although the providers may take time to introduce these changes depending on their own strategies.

The 15-year gilt yield increased by 3 basis points to 1.59% during July 2018 with providers of standard annuities decreasing rates by an average -1.30% for this month and we would expect rates to rise by 1.60% in the short term if yields do not fall.

For smoker and enhanced annuity providers have decreased their rates by an average of -0.41% and rates may fall by 0.71% in the short term if yields do not fall.


Impaired annuity rates remain volatile with providers increasing annuities and changing the pricing and margins on different medical conditions on a regular basis.
