The FTSE UK Level Annuity Index Series is a set of benchmarks designed to allow users to compare changes in the value of a pre-retirement fund with changes in annuity prices. Annuity rates differ depending on individual circumstances, and the series reflects this with multiple indexes representing a range of retirement profiles, creating a suitable comparison to assess fund performance. The index series is calculated daily, using the average of the three highest annuity rates for different retirement profiles (Early, Standard, Late).
