What's going on in the bulk annuities market? (20 June 2020)
Just as some defined benefit schemes are counting their losses, well hedged trustee boards find themselves closer to their endgame than ever. A widening gap between the cost of insuring benefits and holding low-risk gilts could make some sponsors think twice about pursuing self-sufficiency, but industry experts warn that the best pricing will go to the best prepared schemes. The session dives into the nuance of recent market moves, featuring presentations from Chris DeMarco, Managing Director of UK Pension Risk Transfer at Legal and General, and a live discussion with Chris Martin, Founding Director at Independent Trustee Services. Topics  include the growth and limits of capacity in the UK buyout market, along with practical endgame tips for schemes large and small, and at either end of the funding spectrum.

Endgame Perspectives

Endgame Perspectives (14 May 2020)
For DB pension schemes approaching their endgame, there are now more options than ever to consider. We teamed up with Professional Pensions to examine how trustees can plan for their endgame, regardless of where they are on their de-risking journey or the size of their scheme. Expert speakers from Legal & General’s award-winning investment management and pension risk transfer businesses examine the endgame landscape and the options available to schemes, while two independent trustees will offer their reflections from a small and large scheme-perspective to give you a practical outlook on the different considerations that may shape your thinking.
