Pension risk transfer

When it comes to transferring your pension risk to an insurance company you only have one chance to get it right.

With LCP you’ll have the confidence you’re working with highly experienced, leading industry experts. We can help you on the whole journey, from designing your strategy, preparing well, agreeing the right deal, and managing a seamless post-transaction process – whether that be for a buy-in, buy-out or longevity swap.

Your goals and your members’ experience are at the heart of everything we do. 

As funding positions improve, more schemes and sponsors are looking to insurance. In the nascent Irish pension risk transfer market, it is vital that you partner with an experienced bulk annuity adviser to ensure that your scheme gets the most from insurers, in terms of price, transaction risk management and post-transaction onboarding.

Our tried-and-tested bulk annuity transaction process means that our clients can approach the market in confidence knowing they will get strong engagement from insurers and competitive pricing for the settlement of their liabilities.

LCP is leading key developments in the Irish market, including the design and delivery of non-pensioner transactions.
