Pension Superfunds – do they tick all the boxes?

The end of 2021 has seen Clara-Pensions complete assessment with the Pensions Regulator, the first superfund to have achieved this. This follows the Pensions Regulator issuing "guidance for DB superfunds" a year prior, in June 2020, and issuing guidance on the process it expects trustees and sponsors to follow when considering a superfund transaction, in October 2020.

In light of this news, we have reissued the video below from late 2020, in which Aon Partner and Head of Consolidation John Baines gives a brief overview of market developments. John is joined by LawDeb’s Michael Chatterton to give a Trustee perspective, Michael has a unique position as he is both a pension scheme trustee and a trustee of Clara.

Whilst the initial assessment and related steps are running a year later than expected when we recorded the video, the wider content is as relevant as ever. Look out for more updates soon.
