Pension annuities fear

Pension annuity providers fear an annuity disaster if European regulators force Britain's state-backed banks to cancel interest payments on bonds. With European regulators demanding that bondholders not be paid before taxpayers get their money back from the state-backed banks, investors are afraid that this will result in a drop in income for pension annuities because bank bonds were seen as particularly useful when matching liabilities with annuities.
