monthly analysis of annuities and gilt yields


Annuity rates are based primarily on the 15-year gilt yields so changes in gilt yields will affect annuities. The above chart shows yields reached an all time low of 0.90% on 11 August 2016 after an interest rate cut to 0.25% and £70 billion of quantitative easing.

The 15-year gilt yields had reduced significantly since June 2008 due to the financial crisis and this has had the effect of reducing annuity rates.

As a general rule a 30 basis point rise in yields would increase annuities by 3.0% although the providers may take time to introduce these changes depending on their own strategies.

By the beginning of February 2017 yields were 334 basis points lower since July 2008 when they were 4.83% and on this basis annuity rates should have reduced by 33.4%. Our benchmark example has decreased by 35.4% suggesting annuity rates could increase by 2.0% in the long term. For the latest updates see Annuity Rates Review.
