In the market for pension buyouts and buy-ins, big transactions get the headlines and DB schemes looking for smaller deals can struggle to get the attention of insurers.
For deals involving liabilities valued at £100 million or less this problem is particularly acute. Even if an insurer does offer a quote it may be at a disproportionally high price.
This isn’t surprising when you consider that providing a quote costs an insurer about as much as a small car.
Getting your pension risk transfer deal noticed
Mercer's Streamlined Quotation Service can help your DB scheme overcome this obstacle to transferring pension risk. Here’s how:
- By combining information from multiple schemes in the same format we make it easier and cheaper for insurers to provide quotes.
- This approach creates competition, increasing your chance of a proposal that is financially attractive for you and your members.
- We send the information to insurers at the same time every month, allowing you to monitor prices and carry out a transaction at the right time.
This short video tells you more about how the Mercer Streamlined Quotation Service works.
