January analysis of annuities

The 15-year gilt yields increased by 29 basis points as the US fiscal cliff deal was agreed by congress. After staring the month at 2.31% the yields decreased to 2.60% and has been above 2.50% during the whole month.

The main factor for the increase was the US fiscal cliff where President Obama and Republican House of Representatives had been negotiating to avoid the implementation of $600 billion of spending cuts and tax rises from january 2013.

As a result investors have been confident to move funds from safe havens such as US Treasury Notes and UK government gilts to higher risk investments. This has reduced the price of gilts and increased the yields which should benefit pensioners as annuity rates increase at some time in the future.

For December the yields range for the month was from 2.31% to 2.63% or 32 basis points which is more volatile than the previous month. Fig 2 below shows the daily 15-year gilt yields and the increase or decrease from the previous day's close:
