Indexed annuity sales have grown significantly in the past few years and currently account for much of the net positive inflow into annuity products. This growth has been driven in no small part by guaranteed lifetime withdrawal benefit (GLWB) offerings. With this proliferation in indexed annuity sales, it is important to review considerations in pricing and modeling indexed annuities and optional guarantees. At this session, attendees will learn more about pricing frameworks for indexed annuities and their optional guarantees.

At the conclusion of the session, attendees will be able to:

  • Identify methods for analyzing the profitability of indexed annuities;
  • Compare pricing techniques for guaranteed benefits across variable and indexed annuity product lines; Select appropriate frameworks for pricing guaranteed lifetime withdrawal benefits in indexed annuities; and
  • Evaluate how reinsurance can impact annuity pricing results.
