As plan sponsors seek to de-risk, many are looking for ways to get out of the pension game altogether – annuitization is one exit strategy. Using annuities as a way to de-risk is a popular option, but there are costs and complexities involved. Heather Wolfe joined a panel that included John Poos (George Weston), Julien Ranger (Osler) and Andrew Whale (Mercer) to address key questions plan sponsors should be asking about annuities and whether or not they're a good fit for all plans.
