Secure Lifetime income
Secure Lifetime Income (SLI) is a guaranteed income producing asset that could optimise drawdown portfolio performances when included within the SIPP.
As part of a retirement income plan, SLI could improve client outcomes in a wide variety of circumstances.
Creating more efficient retirement plans
The guaranteed income delivered through our SLI solution is free from sequence risk and is uncorrelated to the other assets in the drawdown portfolio.
SLI is built upon the long established and proven concept of pooling longevity risk with other retirees. This means SLI could generate higher income than conventional bonds, as the income from SLI assumes bond-like returns plus mortality credits.
As a result, the withdrawal rate on the rest of the drawdown portfolio could be lower. This enables the portfolio to produce:
- higher long-term values, to increase legacy provision; and/or
- more sustainable or higher income.
Constructing portfolios with a guaranteed income producing asset could help evidence that avoiding foreseeable harm has been considered in the advice process.
