Records are breaking in the UK and the pension risk transfer market is more flexible and more global than ever.
With less than nine months behind us, 2014 is already one of the most noteworthy years in pension risk transfer history.

• over £21 billion in longevity risk transfers, including the BT Pension Scheme transaction, which is the largest longevity risk transfer ever completed.
