`The shift from defined benefit to defined contribution pension plans, in both the public and private sectors and around the world, has drawn new attention to the long-standing problem of insuring against longevity risk in retirement. This volume provides a superb introduction to the operation of current annuity markets and the economic analysis of these markets.' James Poterba, Mitsui Professor of Economics, MIT and President, National Bureau of Economic Research `Converting savings into sustainable spending is fast becoming the major challenge for the baby boomers. This book provides a great source of information on annuities from both an actuarial science and behavioural economics perspective and on how we can help meet this need.' Tom Boardman, Director of Retirement Strategy, Prudential `As the baby boomers begin to retire from 2010, an understanding of the role and importance of annuities has never been more needed. This is because they are the only financial instrument ever devised that can hedge longevity risk. More than half the world's life annuities are sold in the UK, and two of the UK's leading experts have written this timely book on annuities. It will become a standard reference.' David Blake, Professor of Pension Economics at Cass Business School
