Navigating Uncertainty

We all know that markets move. However, in the past few years we’ve lived through one of the most turbulent periods in modern history. Yet market volatility can also create opportunities for pension schemes on their de-risking journeys – during this period we have seen some of the most of attractive bulk annuity pricing in the history of the UK market.

The market factors that most impact buyout affordability have continued to move positively over the course of this year, namely interest rates and credit spreads. In this episode, Sabeen Iftikhar, Director in our Pension Risk Transfer (PRT) business, talks to Aysha Patel, New Business Origination Lead, PRT and Mat Webb, Head of insurance Solutions & Strategy at Legal & General Investment Management, about how pension schemes can take advantage of market volatility and achieve favourable pricing opportunities.
