ABI is proposing to run a compulsory survey every two months and publish a table with the annuity rates that its members would offer to a range of hypothetical customer profiles. The survey would contain both open market rates and those of providers offering annuities only to their existing pension customers. This would increase transparency in the annuity market and help customers shop around. The consultation is open until 3 December. (Source: ABI Launches Consultation on Annuity Rate Transparency)
