Anytime conversion feature

Our Fixed Term Annuity keeps your client’s retirement options open. They can convert to another retirement product at any time or encash the plan as a lump sum payment.

  • All clients qualify to the anytime conversion feature, when they take out our Fixed Term Annuity.
  • We pay the current value of your client’s Guaranteed Maturity Value (GMV) plus their unpaid income payments. 
  • To calculate the current value we look at the value of the underlying investments at the date they convert the plan. There are no penalties for using the conversion feature.
  • Values could be significantly lower than GMV in the early years or if investment conditions have worsened.
