Guaranteed Income Drawdown:


The need for guarantees

Uncertainty is a significant threat to retirement planning. It brings volatility which in retirement can significantly increase the chances of a client outliving their funds.

We offer a bespoke and cost effective way to provide certainty and flexibility for your clients. This is achieved using the LV= Pension wrapper to provide a guaranteed income for a period of time that is most appropriate for your client.

Guaranteed income drawdown solutions

Providing capital and income guarantees, there are flexible solutions that don’t require an income lock-in for life, or high guarantee charges. You can create a guaranteed income drawdown solution for your clients by combining the following solutions:
  • Protected Retirement Plan - provides guaranteed income tailored to the needs of your client. 
  • LV= Pension (Flexible Transitions Account) provides the full range of drawdown flexibility with access to over 200 additional funds through our Core Funds. Our low-cost charging structure means wrapper charges are 0.2% on investments up to £700,000 and nil on all amounts above this (a £195 p.a. minimum charge applies).
  • Smoothed Managed Funds Pension provides smoothed investment performance, ideally suited to retiring clients. You can also secure your client’s future capital with a 10-year capital guarantee on the Smoothed Managed Cautious fund.

Drawdown wrapper

Our drawdown wrapper, the Flexible Transitions Account, will benefit your clients with guaranteed income and capital. It offers simple, low cost charges for capital investments, and 200+ additional funds from leading investment managers.
