    Pearson agrees deal to insure third of pension scheme risk

    Publisher Pearson (PSON.L) said on Tuesday it had agreed a deal to insure a third of its pension scheme liabilities totalling 1.2 billion pounds with Legal & General (LGEN.L) and Aviva (AV.L). The deal "substantially reduces" the risk that Pearson would be unable to fund future retiree benefits and was agreed at no further cost to the company, it said in a nine-month trading update. Under the so-called 'buy-in bulk annuity', the insurers take on some of the risk of the pension scheme, which remains with the company.

    Prudential merges UK fund management with insurance in cost drive

    Britain's Prudential (Amsterdam: PD8.AS - news) moved to fend off competition from passive funds on Thursday, merging its M&G (Shanghai: 603899.SS - news) asset management and UK and European insurance businesses to save costs and improve its products. The lure of lower-cost index funds has driven a round of consolidation in the active funds sector, with deals such as the formation earlier this year of Janus Henderson through the merger of a U.S. and a UK fund firm. Prudential said the combined M&G Prudential business manages 332 billion pounds ($430 billion) in assets for over 6 million customers and employs more than 9,000 people.

    UK bulk annuities may top 10 bln pounds in 2017 - report

    The bulk annuity market in Britain was worth nearly 5 billion pounds ($6.5 billion) in the first half and may top 10 billion this year for the third year in a row, consultant Hymans Robertson said on Wednesday. The growth in the bulk annuity market comes as companies look to insulate themselves from exposure to pension schemes by getting insurers to take on the risk of part, or all, of their defined benefit or final salary schemes. "The growth potential is massive," said James Mullins, partner and head of risk transfer solutions at Hymans Robertson.
