Here’s everything you need to know about our bulk annuities service. How it works, the services we provide and the benefits.
Our team specialise in de-risking pension plans, helping to provide security for members and reducing your liability. We have extensive experience in bulk annuities and have the data needed to appropriately price longevity risk.
We create bespoke solutions, whatever size your scheme. From small schemes of less than 30 members to larger schemes with over 3000 members.
Each new bulk annuity purchase is given a dedicated Scheme Implementation Consultant to ensure a smooth transition process.
Our buy-in service supports trustees and sponsoring employers who want to provide long-term security for scheme members.
A buy-in allows you to protect your pension scheme from investment, inflation and longevity risks. We make regular payments into the scheme to meet monthly pension payroll needs.
The relationship between your pension scheme and its members stays the same - the scheme continues to pay the benefits and we have no direct relationship with members.
Our buy-out service is for trustees who want to permanently settle their pension liabilities.
We take over responsibility for the liabilities bought out by the pension scheme, removing the associated risks from the sponsoring employer.
Members of the scheme are issued individual policies by us and we become responsible for the pensioner payroll and member administration. Where a full scheme buy out takes place, the pension scheme can then be wound up by the trustees.
We have over 10 years’ experience in helping trustees de-risk their pension schemes.
