Before reaching retirement, most of your clients will feel in a position of relative stability, in employment receiving a regular income and by age 75 the chances are they’ll have a clear sense of what they want the rest of the retirement to be like and the money they’ll need to support this.

But a lot can happen during the early years of retirement and your clients need both flexibility and security during this time. The LV Flexible Guarantee Funds Bridge can give your clients a perfect bridge over this period of uncertainty. It’s been designed for those at the start of their retirement who want both flexibility and the potential for growth.

It works by investing your client’s pension pot in a SIPP wrapper provided by the LV= Flexible Transitions Account, then all you have to do is allocate your pension benefits between a hybrid of two products.

The LV= Protected Retirement Plan is our version of a Fixed Term Annuity and provides the guaranteed regular income which is paid into a SIPP bank account. Your client can choose to hold the income there to help with tax planning, transfer it into their domestic bank account or reinvest it. It even provides the flexibility for ad hoc income payments to be made.

The potential for growth is provided by a choice of three Flexible Guaranteed Funds, a cautious, balanced or managed growth option all risk rated by distribution technology. All of the funds come with investment smoothing as standard and optional capital guarantees. This signature hybrid solution can be arranged with one simple illustration and one signature-less online application which offers your client one account, one income payment date and one annual statement.
