Retirement income: Making the right choices
Retirement income: Making the right choices
Fidelity International
Sep 2008 United Kingdom Pensioners & Retirement, Annuities and Income Drawdown
With retirement increasingly lasting 20 to 30 years, people need to consider the corrosive effect of inflation on the purchasing power of their income. This paper addresses the pattern of expenditure in retirement: is expenditure constant throughout retirement or do we need more in the early years of retirement? Next it looks at the value of increasing annuities compared with level annuities. Finally, it introduces a template that attempts to demonstrate how different categories of expenditure could be aligned with different types of annuity to produce the optimal result.

Can't save, won't save: Workers face up to 50% income drop.
Can't save, won't save: Workers face up to 50% income drop.
Fidelity International
May 2008 United Kingdom Savings, Pensioners & Retirement
In its third study regarding Britain’s retirement prospects, Fidelity International has looked at how well prepared the UK is for retirement and tracked this against the results in the previous two years. The study finds that despite an increasing focus on retirement, there is little evidence that people have taken heed of the warnings. The typical household will face a significant drop in income at retirement to a level that is well below people’s expectations of what they believe they need to enjoy a comfortable retirement. The paper also explores the extent to which expenditure increases or decreases during retirement and, therefore, the practical implications of surviving on a radically reduced income.

18 Jun 2007 United Kingdom Savings, NEST/Personal Accounts
According to research by Fidelity International, the Government’s introduction of Personal Accounts in 2012 may help encourage more retirement saving but people who wait until then to start could miss out on as much as £116,000. However, the value of starting retirement saving early appears not to be getting through to many investors. Fidelity's research shows that one in three under 35s believe they can defer saving until later in life and nearly one in five aged 35 to 54 agreed.
