Buy-ins and buy-outs

We have a specialist buy-in/buy-out team that can successfully work with the insurance market to help you to insure risk in your defined benefit pension plans.

Our specialist team has an enviable reputation for a high completion rate with insurers (circa 90 percent, compared to an industry average of circa 40 percent) because it takes the time to properly position the scheme for insurers for a successful transaction.

This preparedness also leads to insurers quoting more competitively where we are involved, knowing that our schemes will be presented with high-quality data and a clear understanding of the process and success criteria.

Capita has excellent recent experience in conducting these transactions - circa £400 million of buy-ins/buy-outs over 20 transactions completed as lead trustee advisor since 2015.  Our team members have experience of leading projects covering over £2.5 billion of pension scheme liabilities across the full range of deal sizes. We have a flexible approach to the transaction process that fits with the specific circumstances of each case.  

At Capita, we are with you for the journey  we will help you define your objectives and then build a plan to get you there. This might include selected liability reduction exercises, investment de-risking or covenant support strategies. But most importantly it will be a plan that is tailored to meet your needs and objectives.
