台灣逐漸步入高齡化社會，由於各種經濟社會因素，一般個人利用早年的儲蓄準備退休後的生活，已是不可避免的趨勢。衡諸個人自己獨力負擔退休生活所需的準備，不外乎是加入保險，藉助集體互助的力量達成，或是自力儲蓄，藉由金融工具的使用，累積財富。在政府宣示的亞太營運中心計劃勢必將帶動國內金融發展。屆時，行之歐美諸國已久的遞延年金商品可望引進台灣的保險業界，使自力儲蓄的個人能透過金融商品的多元化，選擇最有效用的金融商品，以謀取退休後的生活準備。鑑於美國業者經營遞延年金商品的教訓，在文獻的閱讀之中，筆者發現利率風險在精算界所受到的重視與發展成果值得國人借鏡，因此發奮研究利率風險在遞延年金商品中所扮演的角色，份量及其因應之道。希冀能在未來國內業者推行遞延年金之際，對經營此商品所面臨的風險能有清楚的認識，也希望監理機關能了解業者的需求而給予適度的協助。相信在健康的經營環境下，遞延年金商品會替消費者帶來莫大的福祉。本論文的研究方法為文獻探討，研究方向與目的有三：一、了解遞延年金商品的內容及其使用價值。二、辨識遞延年金商品的利率風險。三、探討如何衡量遞延年金商品利率風險與其管理的方法。 When Taiwan stepped into old-aged society, as driven by variety of economic and social forces, an individual has to prepare for his(her) retirement during the ealier working years.
