Insurers to give best buy-in and buy-out pricing for favourite GMP equalisation method
Insurers to give best buy-in and buy-out pricing for favourite GMP equalisation method
Hymans Robertson
27 Feb 2019 United Kingdom Annuities and Income Drawdown, Funding and Minimum Funding Requirement
According to a Hymans Robertson survey of insurance companies that are active in the buy-in/buy-out market, there is a noticeable preference for pension schemes which adopt the D2 method of Guaranteed Minimum Pension (GMP) equalisation. The responses of seven of the eight insurers revealed a unanimous preference for pension schemes that had chosen this conversion method. By comparison Method C2, favoured by the recent High Court judgment on GMP equalisation, proved to be significantly less popular among insurers.

Putting pensions in context - FTSE 350 Pensions Analysis 2018
FTSE 350 Pensions Analysis
Hymans Robertson
5 Dec 2018 United Kingdom Accounting, Funding and Minimum Funding Requirement, Scheme Issues & Trends, Surpluses and Deficits
Hymans Robertson has published its tenth annual FTSE 350 pension analysis report, looking at issues affecting the DB pension schemes of FTSE 350 companies. According to the report, two significant themes for DB pensions in 2019 will be a tougher approach from TPR towards schemes going through actuarial valuations in the wake of several high-profile corporate failures in 2018, and the take-off of the DB consolidation market. The consultancy's research has also found that the majority of companies within the FTSE 350 are comfortably able to support their pension schemes, with 90% of companies able to pay off their IAS19 deficit with less than six months' earnings.

The participants identified investment performance and risk management and committee role and pensions legislation as the two areas of their work in which they had the greatest confidence, with 91% of respondents feeling "mostly or completely confident" in the latter.

Master Trust Default Fund Performance Review
Master Trust Default Fund Performance Review
Hymans Robertson
Sep 2018 United Kingdom Investment - General, Investment - Performance, Master Trusts, Scheme Issues & Trends
Hymans Robertson has published a report comparing the investment performance of the default funds used by the largest providers of master trusts. The report looks at performance across three separate stages of DC investing with differing investment requirements, which it terms the "growth phase", the "consolidation phase" and the "pre-retirement phase". According to the report's findings, the past year has seen low returns for master trust providers in their default funds, with a median return of just 1.5% for funds in the growth phase and 1.2% for funds in the consolidation phase. The research has also found that in relation to default funds in the growth phase, there is a difference in the returns received by the best and worst performing providers of 6% per annum over three years, which it estimates could mean a 10% difference in the value of those providers' members' DC pension pots.

Maximising Value in DB
Maximising Value in DB
Hymans Robertson
Sep 2018 United Kingdom Investment - General, Surpluses and Deficits
Hymans Robertson has published a report looking at ways in which DB schemes could reduce their deficits. According to the report's findings, the current UK DB £500bn deficit could be halved if schemes explored alternative opportunities to create value across the "three pillars of value creation" identified by the consultancy. The three pillars relate to identifying a long term objective, adopting an efficient strategy which maximises every opportunity to create additional value, and pursuing operational effectiveness, for example through technology and the adoption of alternative governance structures.

Bulk Annuity Market Update: The dawn of a new age in the bulk annuity market
H1 Bulk Annuity Market Update
Hymans Robertson
9 Aug 2018 United Kingdom Annuities and Income Drawdown
Hymans Robertson's latest analysis of the bulk annuity market shows that, in the first half of 2018, many insurers are writing almost as much pension scheme bulk annuity volume as in the whole of 2017. Taking into account buy-ins and buy-outs that are close to transaction, the market is therefore expected to meet the predicted total volume of £35bn, a more than 100% increase compared to the market average over the past four years.
