The Coronation Living Annuity provides a regular income upon retiring from your retirement fund (including retirement annuity, pension, provident or preservation funds). While no tax is payable on any investment gains earned in the living annuity, any income withdrawn will be taxed according to the normal tax tables.
A suitable investment portfolio can be created from the Coronation range of unit trust funds. The moderate risk Coronation Capital Plus Fund and the lower risk Coronation Balanced Defensive Fund are optimised for retired investors, who need to balance their immediate income needs with the requirement to achieve long term growth.
Living annuity investors are currently not subject to Regulation 28 of the Pension Funds Act, which mean that there are no prescribed investment limitations as in the case of a Retirement Annuity investment. Current law requires a minimum annual income withdrawal of 2.5%, and a maximum of 17.5% of the value of the Living Annuity.
The Coronation Living Annuity is flexible, cost-effective and transparent. It is designed to allow you the flexibility to change your level of post-retirement income annually and/or switch between investment options as your circumstances change, without incurring any penalties. We do not charge initial fees or annual administration fees. The only fees payable are the annual management fees applicable to the underlying unit trust funds selected by the investor.

Neither Coronation Fund Managers Limited, Coronation Management Company (RF) (Pty) Ltd nor any other subsidiary of Coronation Fund Managers Limited (collectively “Coronation”) is acting, purporting to act and nor is it authorised to act in any way as an adviser. Coronation endeavours to provide accurate and timely information but we make no representation or warranty, express or implied, with respect to the correctness, accuracy or completeness of the information and opinions. Coronation does not undertake to update, modify or amend the information on a frequent basis or to advise any person if such information subsequently becomes inaccurate. Any representation or opinion is provided for information purposes only. Unit trusts should be considered a medium- to long-term investment. The value of units may go down as well as up, and is therefore not guaranteed. Past performance is not necessarily an indication of future performance. Unit trusts are allowed to engage in scrip lending and borrowing. Performance is calculated by Coronation for a lump sum investment with income distributions reinvested. All underlying price and distribution data is sourced from Morningstar. Performance figures are quoted after the deduction of all costs (including manager fees and trading costs) incurred within the fund. Note that individual investor performance may differ as a result of the actual investment date, the date of reinvestment of distributions and dividend withholding tax, where applicable. Where foreign securities are included in a fund it may be exposed to macroeconomic, settlement, political, tax, reporting or illiquidity risk factors that may be different to similar investments in the South African markets. Fluctuations or movements in exchange rates may cause the value of underlying investments to go up or down. The Coronation Money Market fund is not a bank deposit account. The fund has a constant price, and the total return is made up of interest received and any gain or loss made on any particular instrument, in most cases the return will merely have the effect of increasing or decreasing the daily yield, but in the case of abnormal losses it can have the effect of reducing the capital value of the portfolio. Excessive withdrawals could place the fund under liquidity pressures, in such circumstances a process of ring-fencing of redemption instructions and managed pay-outs over time may be followed. A fund of funds invests in collective investment schemes that levy their own fees and charges, which could result in a higher fee structure for this fund. A feeder fund invests in a single fund of a collective investment scheme, which levies its own charges and could result in a higher fee structure for the feeder fund. Coronation Management Company (RF) (Pty) Ltd is a Collective Investment Schemes Manager approved by the Financial Sector Conduct Authority in terms of the Collective Investment Schemes Control Act. Unit trusts are traded at ruling prices set on every day trading. Forward pricing is used. For Domestic Unit Trust Funds and Tax Free Investments, including rand-denominated International Unit Trust Funds, fund valuations take place at approximately 15h00 each business day, except at month end when the valuation is performed at approximately 17h00 (JSE market close).
