The UK de-risking market. Does size really matter?

We are delighted to share the findings from research we carried out earlier this year in conjunction with Professional Pensions.

Download the findings here.

Our aim was to understand trustee and employer views on the de-risking options available to them. Is the full range of options understood and are there any preconceptions about the ease of accessing the options for schemes of different sizes?

You will see from the findings that longevity risk and the options available to settle it are viewed differently by schemes of different sizes. You will learn from this report that there is currently a wide range of de-risking options available to schemes of all sizes. The ways in which schemes of different sizes engage with the market may vary, but no scheme should think they are too big or too small for de-risking to be appropriate and achievable.

I would sincerely like to thank Professional Pensions’ readers for helping us with the research, and I very much hope you will benefit from the insights set out in this report. Please let us know if you would like us to help you 'size up' your de-risking options by sending us an email.
