Latest DTCC Report Reveals Inflows into Annuity Products Increased 11 Percent in 2013

The Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation (DTCC) has released detailed findings in its latest Annuity Market Activity Report for 2013 that reflect an increase in both inflows and outflows, compared to 2012.

December 2013 was also the first time since inception of Analytic Reporting for Annuities in 2011 that outflows exceeded inflows for a given month.

“Based on the annuity transactions we process every day, we have shed light on critical insights and trends that can be leveraged by industry participants to make more informed business decisions and identify opportunities for growing their business,” said Andrew Blumberg, Director, DTCC Insurance & Retirement Services (I&RS).

Comparing 2013 to 2012

Inflows into annuity products processed in 2013 totaled almost $94 billion, increasing by nearly 11%, or $9.2 billion over 2012. Outflows totaled almost $85 billion, increasing by over 15%, or $11.4 billion, over 2012. The resulting net cash flows totaled $9 billion, declining by more than 19% compared to 2012. (See Graphic.)

Findings from the year-end report also indicate that the top 10 states ranked by inflows (billions) in 2013 accounted for more than half of all inflows nationwide, and that the top 10 insurance/holding companies ranked by inflows captured almost $53 billion of inflows, or more than 76% of total inflows from January to September 2013.

In 2013 I&RS processed annuity transactions totaling more than $178 billion for:

  • 117 insurance company participants (representing 42 parent/holding companies)
  • 138 distributors
  • 3,467 annuity products
