Longevity annuities may make sense in the eyes of at least one CFA charterholder.
“…individuals can have their cake and eat it too. They can buy longevity insurance for about 5–10 percent of their assets while investing and decumulating the remaining 90–95 percent!” according to a Canadian charterholder’s letter in the July-August issue of CFA Magazine (subscription required).
I’ve written previously about annuities. It fascinates me that they’re becoming more respectable.
