Warning over dip in market

LEGAL & General has said it expects the individual annuity market to contract by around 50% this year and by a further half in 2015 after the Budget gave people more freedom over how they use their retirement savings.

The company remains on track to exceed the £4.1 billion in annuity premiums it wrote in 2013.
