Ensuring your buy-in premium is invested in an ESG friendly way

11 May 2022


The approaches being adopted by insurers in relation to Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) factors are becoming more relevant for pension scheme trustees as they form their own views on ESG in the context of their scheme’s investments. As these pension schemes get closer to their buy-out endgames, it’s vital for trustees to understand the differences in insurers’ ESG policies and processes prior to a buy-in transaction. This will help them consider whether the assets underlying the buy-in policy are being invested in a way consistent with their own ESG beliefs.

Watch the final webinar in our Risk Transfer – under the spotlight 2022 series, where we were joined by a panel of insurers with ESG expertise, to discuss their approach to ESG investment, how they manage ESG risks to deliver greater security to members’ benefits and how we can support trustees in deciding which insurer to select from an ESG perspective.

If you have any questions, please get in touch.
