Lower Expenses for Lifetime Income Guarantees Do Not Guarantee a Better Retirement Annuity
July 12, 2018
Hedgeness, Inc. today released its first Expense to Benefit Ratio analysis of seven variable annuities ranked by retirement income distribution benefits.As the rankings show, lower expenses do not necessarily correlate to the value of a variable annuity. The analysis was performed using their patent-pending analytics software product Variable Annuity I.Q.
Unlike traditional ways of evaluating variable annuities, which often focus on singular features such as expenses, Variable Annuity I.Q. creates a holistic assessment of each variable annuity by generating a Benefit number that incorporates income guarantee rate, time of guarantee, asset allocation requirements, step-ups, cost of derivatives, and insurer’s credit rating. The calculation of the Benefit number is in large part derived by hypothetically recreating the annuity with its income benefits and evaluating the hedging costs for said income benefits in current and historical market scenarios.

And always be sure to choose flight paths that will avoid flying over...
