The best of the web on money, markets and all things financial, as chosen daily by Globe and Mail personal finance columnist Rob Carrick.

In defence of annuities

If you want to read more about how annuities can address your retirement needs, check out a book Milevsky co-wrote with Alexandra Macqueen called Pensionize Your Nest Egg: How to Use Product Allocation to Create a Guaranteed Income for Life.
