In a climate where considerable uncertainty persists within financial markets - trustees and sponsoring employers remain focussed on managing their pension risks. Insurer pricing for pensioners is at historically competitive levels, enabling schemes to potentially exchange available low risk assets for a buy-in with no, or even positive, funding impact.
Our 2017 Bulk Annuity Annual Report highlights key issues for trustees and employers to consider in looking to de-risk successfully, including the role of liability management exercises in reducing the ultimate cost of securing the scheme benefits. Being well-prepared and aware of the possible options is important in a market where demand could increase significantly.
