Pensions and longevity risk transfer

Overview

Defined benefit schemes are increasingly looking to insurance as a method of guaranteeing the benefits promised to members and relieving sponsoring employers of on-going funding obligations.

The pensions risk transfer market has seen significant growth in recent years, a trend which is expected to continue to accelerate as Solvency II beds in and insurer capacity increases.

We are ideally placed to assist clients in this innovative and dynamic market. We bring together specialists with market leading experience in insurance, reinsurance, pensions, derivatives, security and collateral structures and financial regulation to advise clients across a range of de-risking and risk transfer transactions including:

  • collateralised insurance and reinsurance;
  • pension buy-ins and buy-outs; and
  • longevity swaps.
