Lloyds launches non-advised annuity comparison service


Lloyds Banking Group has launched an online annuity comparison service designed to help people shop around at retirement.

The non-advised service, which provides annuity quotes from a panel of 11 providers, will be available through its Lloyds TSB, Halifax and Bank of Scotland retail brands.

LBG head of wealth and advice Simon Clark says: “As an annuity purchase is a one-off decision that you are locked in to for life, it’s really important to explore all the options before making a choice.

“Our new service is designed to make this process as easy as possible.”

The providers selected for the panel are Aviva, Canada Life, Hodge Lifetime, Just Retirement, Legal & General, LV=, MGM Advantage, Partnership, Reliance Mutual and Scottish Widows.

Providers pay a commission and charges are included in the quote provided.

  1. None advised, full commission!
    That will be an RDR result then and “fee” free for the consumers.
    No advice & no redress all paid by commission.

  2. So Scottish Widows new impaired annuity will be on offer?

    What a great results for the consumers. No advice and full commission.

    Happy days!

  3. It’s been mentioned on these discussions before but the law of unintended consequences strikes again.

    FSA/FCA bans commission when recieving advice. Availability of advice decreases. Rise in availability of non-advised purchase options all paid for by commission that FSA/FCA wanted to ban.

    You couldn’t write it.
