About Anthony Webb
The primary focus of my research is the management of asset decumulation in retirement. My published and working papers examine issues such as optimal annuitization strategies, the design of innovative annuity products, the management of aggregate mortality risk, strategies for tapping housing equity in retirement, and so on. But I also have written on the impact of pension and Social Security incentives on retirement, and the determinants and consequences of the balance of bargaining power within the household.
