The chart shows estimated annuity prices from insurers as a percentage of accounting liability in each of the five countries. For example, where a line is at the 113% level, this means that Mercer expects the average price of a pension annuity transaction for current retirees to be broadly 13% higher than the equivalent accounting liabilities. The solid index line shows the average price of pension annuity transactions as a percentage of accounting liability across the five locations and draws upon information such as each country’s market size.
