Sackers publishes latest guide on buy-ins, buy-outs and longevity solutions

Sackers has published its refreshed 2020 guide for trustees on buy-ins, buy-outs and longevity solutions. This guide considers the increasingly active bulk annuity market and offers practical tips for trustees on preparing for a buy-in / buy-out  and longevity transaction.

Partner, Ralph McClelland, commented “In 2019, the buy-in/out market hit record-breaking levels yet again.  With many commentators predicting that these levels will become the new normal in coming years, it has never been more important for trustees to understand the market and present themselves well to make their scheme appealing to insurers. As we explain in our Guide, our advice remains that good preparation can make all the difference.

At Sackers we have had another exceptional year having advised clients transacting over £12.6bn of buy-in/buy-outs business and £7bn of longevity swaps, including some of the most complex, be-spoked transactions to date.  We are therefore ideally placed to advise trustees exploring their options in this area.”
