Pensions risk transfer

We use our experience to guide you through a complex process to the benefit of members, trustees and sponsors.

A pragmatic approach

We guide pension schemes from the buy-in stage to buy-out, final wind-up and trustee liability discharge, securing maximum protection for trustees.

A complete view of the market

We have a comprehensive view of the risk transfer market through our work for trustees, sponsors, insurers and reinsurers.

Market-leading experience

We have advised on over 170 bulk annuity deals worth over £16.7bn – from small scheme buy-outs to multi-billion pound bulk annuity and longevity swaps deals.

We advise on how to package up scheme benefits to attract optimum engagement and pricing from insurers, and deliver good outcomes for members, the trustees and the sponsor.

We give strategic guidance on issues such as the allocation of risk and how to ensure robust governance, and we guide you on complex and innovative approaches such as longevity hedging structures; umbrella bulk annuity contracts, and residual risks cover.

We reduce execution risk by addressing key legal issues ahead of exclusivity, and our experience of working with trustees, sponsors, insurers and reinsurers means we can address issues quickly and efficiently.
