Webinar replay – Navigating today’s de-risking market

The last two years have been record breaking years for pension scheme de-risking, but against very different economic back drops, and differing trends.

2020 was another record-breaking year with over £55bn of bulk annuities and longevity swaps written. The bulk annuity market recorded total volumes last year of £32bn, despite the unprecedented challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, and there were over £24bn of longevity swaps agreed by UK pension schemes. 2019 had been a record year in the bulk annuity market with over £43bn of transactions and while 2020 did not surpass this, the market demonstrated resilience, leading to 2020 being the second busiest year ever.

Looking to 2021 and beyond, what do we expect to see? And what do schemes need to do to ensure that they are in the strongest position to begin their de-risking journey?

During this webinar, Aon risk settlement specialists share updates on:

  • COVID-19 - the implications for future longevity
  • Bulk annuity - market update and our predictions for 2021
  • Longevity swaps - why 2020 saw increased demand and key trends for 2021
  • Journey to Settlement - first insights to our recent research on where schemes of all sizes are on their journey to settlement and the next actions to focus on as part of that journey.

During this discussion we refer to our interactive checklist, which helps you identify if superfunds may be right for you. We also reference our free survey resource, which provides you with a FREE personalised report identifying where your scheme is on its journey to settlement.
