Nearly one third of a trillion pounds to be paid by UK company DB schemes over next three years
Mercer

According to Mercer, nearly one third of a trillion pounds will be paid by UK private sector DB pension schemes between 2019 and 2021. The record amount is due to large numbers of active and deferred members expected to transfer the value of their entitlement to another arrangement and a rapidly growing buy-in and buy-out market.

Mercer
5 Nov 2018 United Kingdom Case References and Dispute Resolution, Funding and Minimum Funding Requirement, Surpluses and Deficits
