No matter where you are on your scheme’s journey, we can guide you to the solution which best meets your needs and delivers your members’ benefits with certainty.
We can help you understand the risks to your scheme’s funding position and help you prioritise what action to take.
If risk transfer is the right choice for you, then you can be confident that our deep market knowledge will help you obtain the best value from your transaction.
The ultimate goal for many DB pension schemes is to transfer their risk to an insurance company. Over the next 5-10 years, growth in appetite from DB pension schemes to complete bulk annuity transactions means there will be times when insurers cannot keep pace with pension scheme demand. Rather than sitting tight, we can help you take proactive steps now to capture opportunities in stages. Doing so will also put you in a stronger position for when the time comes to carry out a full buy-out.
In addition to the traditional options of buy-ins, buy-outs and longevity swaps, a number of new risk transfer options have become available to DB pension schemes in recent years. Click here to see a summary of all the options currently available to you.
