Risk Transfer Report 2024

01 Feb 2024

2023 overview

We expect 2023 to have been a record year for risk transfer transactions, marked by a shift towards full-scheme buy-ins, many multibillion-pound buy-ins and a sustained change in market dynamics as insurers felt the resourcing pinch driven by high demand.

As we step into 2024, the risk transfer market is poised for unprecedented change, creating a landscape of opportunities for pension schemes of all sizes. We expect 2024 to see more insurers competing for buy-ins, a record volume of multibillion-pound transactions and more use of alternative risk transfer options and captive insurance.
