Exploring DB Scheme Consolidation
A closer look at Clara
10 Sep 2020
Revisiting the Clara-Pensions model nearly two years later, it’s incredible what has changed. And what hasn’t.
While we’ve seen a seismic shift in life, work and DB consolidation, Clara-Pensions has remained fundamentally the same. However, the regulatory, economic and human backdrop for Clara-Pensions has changed considerably.
This is a fresh look at our first in-depth review of Clara-Pensions (Clara). In this issue, we shine a light on Clara's commercial consolidator proposition, looking at:
- what is Clara-Pensions and how does it work?
- what is the impact of Clara-Pensions on member outcomes?
- when might Clara-Pensions be an appropriate option to consider? and
- what does the future hold?
This publication includes the results of innovative modelling that helps trustees quantitatively assess the impact on member security of transferring to Clara-Pensions, taking account of funding strategy, investment strategy and covenant support in and out of Clara-Pensions.
It’s crucial reading for any trustees or employers considering a superfund transaction.
