There are many ways to transfer risk, and with over half of the FTSE 350 expected to reach self-sufficiency by 2030 it’s important to start thinking about what risk transfer means for you. At the moment, there is plenty of supply of bulk annuities from the insurers which is keeping pricing keen but our analysis shows that there could be a capacity crunch in the future.
In this report we look at the detail behind the headlines. We look at:
- Bulk annuity insurers – an update on changes we’ve seen in this market.
- Insurance company strategies – insight on strategies insurers are adopting for selling bulk annuities and what this means for trustees and sponsoring employers.
- Regulation – what’s new and what does this mean for you.
- Demand from DB pension schemes – how is demand likely to change in the future and what does this mean for when the best time to come to the market is.
We also turn the spotlight on each of the insurers in the market. Taking a look at the numbers behind their strategy and giving you an insight into the types of deals they’re looking for.
I hope you find this report interesting and it helps you to plan and execute your own road to resilience.
