Forum to discuss product development


Income Drawdown Advisory Bureau director Ronnie Lymburn is set to chair an annuities forum on July 8 aimed at product developers.


The forum will discuss how future products can beat the limitations of annuities by providing sufficient income in the current low interest rate environment.


Among the subjects to be discussed are strategies for product development currently being undertaken by providers and the implications of the Inland Revenue review.


Life companies represented will be Scottish Life, Norwich Union and Canada Life, law firm Eversheds and Government and Inland Revenue officials.


It takes place at the Forum Hotel in London SW7. The costs ranges from £395 to £195 depending upon the number of delegates sent.
