De-risking market during the pandemic. Outlook for the BPA market in 2020
Myles Pink from LCP will look back on the record year for BPA volumes in 2019 and comment on the outlook for volumes in 2020 and beyond. He will set out the key drivers of pension scheme demand including an overview of the long term strategies that many pension schemes are following: so-called journey planning. In discussing these drivers, Myles will comment on what impact the outbreak of Covid-19 is expected to have had on these strategies and pension scheme demand for buy-ins and buy-outs.
Sammy Cooper-Smith from Rothesay Life will go on to set out the perspective of the insurer by providing an overview of what drives value-for-money in the supply of insurance de-risking capacity to pension schemes. He too will comment on the impact of Covid-19 on these drivers. In particular, Sammy will focus on the impact of the pandemic on longevity reinsurance pricing and on the prices of assets that insurers invest in to support buy-ins and buy-outs.

DC master trusts are becoming an increasingly popular vehicle for DC pension provision following the introduction of the authorisation regime and the ever-expanding requirements for DC governance. But what are the trips and traps that can arise for pension scheme trustees who are considering or implementing a transfer to a master trust, and what do trustees need to consider when carrying out such a transfer?

- How does working for a Master Trust differ from a DC scheme?

Savers do not think about their pensions in a vacuum and the seismic shock that COVID-19 has delivered to economies and societies has undoubtedly left its mark. Our latest research harnesses member views on environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues today, compared to 18 months ago, we explore the extent to which COVID-19 has affected current and future financial well-being. Which generations and gender have been hardest hit and have events over the past year pushed ESG further up members agenda?
Consolidation, seeking to improve investment design, and benefit from economies of scale is providing a large tailwind for schemes to consider the move to a Master Trust (multi-employer scheme). In their 2020 report, the DCIF noted that many Master Trusts are utilising the TDF structure or are considering moving from a traditional lifestyle approach to a target-date fund.
The role of the presentation is to illustrate why we think well-managed TDFs are well-positioned to meet the demands of the UK retirement landscape today and going forward.
