Aon advises on second multi-billion longevity transaction for Barclays Bank UK Retirement Fund

LONDON, 15 December 2022Aon plc (NYSE: AON), a leading global professional services firm, has announced that it was the lead adviser to the Barclays Bank UK Retirement Fund (UKRF) on its £7 billion longevity transaction with reinsurance provided by an insurance subsidiary of Prudential Financial, Inc. (PFI) (NYSE: PRU) of the United States.

This is the UKRF’s second multi-billion-pound longevity transaction, following the £5 billion transaction executed with the Reinsurance Group of America (RGA) in December 2020.

Tom Scott, partner in Aon’s Risk Settlement team, said:

“This transaction is a further substantive step in the Trustee’s journey to improve the resilience and security of UKRF members’ benefits. Working closely with Kate McInerney’s legal team at Allen & Overy, our multi-disciplinary team was able to conclude a successful negotiation for the UKRF. We leveraged the heightened capacity and appetite of the global reinsurance market during the broking process, as well as the UKRF’s existing operational infrastructure and longevity transaction experience.”
