The return of lifetime annuities!??!

I just read that the Henry Review is likely to suggest that superannuation can be exchanged for guaranteed lifetime income like lifetime annuities. Strangely, it can be done already by purchasing a lifetime annuity with superannuation money. The problem with the current situation is that there are no lifetime annuities left on the market….Comminsure and not much else.

Hopefully this initiative re-opens competition for this outstanding product, except, instead of the current situation, hopefully the new products are priced appropriately. Yields for lifetime and long term anunities have a long way to go to be attractive.
