Many people are attracted to the tax break of investing in retirement annuities without thinking of the long-term consequences.

This is according to Wayde Hiller-van Rensburg, President of the Institute of Retirement Funds Africa (IRFA).

Hiller-van Rensburg spoke to #NightTalk's Gugs Mhlungu and Sizwe Dhlomo on 702, about the value of investing in retirement annuity.

The biggest selling point that people will get when someone tries to sell you the product like a retirement annuity, they are going to tell you you're going to get money back when you do your tax return

Describing retirement annuities as a popular form of long-term investment, Hiller-van Rensburg, says that when people invest in retirement annuities, they should do so with a plan of what they are aiming to save for in retirement.
