Common practice? Its more like secrets! Some structured products divisions of ibanks hedge these for the annuity industry. Some prefer hedging at regular predetermined times, some prefer hedging only when the slippage(positive or negative) exceeds a certain level. Some simply buy ratchets or cliquets with levels set at whatever levels the manager thinks are acceptable.
