To buy-out or not to buy-out, is that the question?


An increasing number of schemes are considering moving beyond partial buy-out to full buy-out and wind-up. Ralph McClelland partnered with Hymans Robertson’s risk transfer specialists in a recent webinar to discuss the obligations and roles of trustees during this definitive stage of a pension scheme’s life.

The session covered:

  • What does buy-in and buy-out mean for the protections for pension scheme members and trustees?
  • Should trustees take the step from having all benefits insured through buy-ins to ultimate buy-out?
  • Why you need to understand your wind-up powers and legal treatment of any surplus?
