    UPDATE 1-Brexit: Credit Suisse bullish on UK equities as no-deal chances fade

    Credit Suisse has turned bullish on UK stocks, especially those with international exposure, as the chances of the country crashing out of the European Union fall and some equities look cheap compared with foreign counterparts, it said on Friday. Credit Suisse is the first major bank to change its view on UK equities amid rising hopes the country will avoid a no-deal Brexit on Oct. 31 after Prime Minister Boris Johnson's hardline stance suffered a series of defeats in recent weeks. Since Johnson won the top job in July, Britain's Brexit crisis has spun more furiously, leaving investors and allies bewildered by an array of decisions that have pushed the once stable political system to its limits.

    Rentokil to offload pension risks to PIC

    The bulk annuity insurance "buy-in" allows Rentokil to transfer pension risks for some 14,200 members, and such deals are increasingly common as companies seek to offload pension obligations that otherwise sit on balance sheets, limiting their financial options. British companies are expected to try and offload a record amount of risk linked to their pension schemes in 2019 as growth in life expectancy eases and interest rates rise, making deals more attractive for insurance firms. The "buy-in" signed by Rentokil has been agreed in anticipation of a full "buy-out" of the scheme, the FTSE-100 group said.
