Prudential Retirement Insurance and Annuity Company (PRIAC) and U.K. insurer Legal & General just completed their third longevity reinsurance transaction together, further evidence that longevity reinsurance continues to be a vehicle for U.K. insurers seeking relief from pension liabilities exposed to longevity risk.
“This latest transaction builds on our relationship with Legal & General and solidifies the platform from which future business can be written,” explains Bill McCloskey, vice president, Longevity Risk Transfer at Prudential Retirement. “It's also a testament to our experience in the reinsurance space and our capacity to support the growth of the U.K. longevity risk transfer market.”
Under the terms of the new agreement, PRIAC will issue reinsurance for a portion of Legal & General's bulk annuity business, providing benefit security for thousands of retirees in the U.K. PRIAC has completed three reinsurance transactions with Legal & General since October 2014.
“We are delighted to work with PRIAC once again, further strengthening this productive partnership," says Kunal Sood, head of new business reinsurance at Legal & General.
