Legal & General Investment Launches New Delegated Solutions Service
Oct 14 14
Legal & General Investment Management has announced the launch of its new delegated solutions service. As part of its delegated solutions service, LGIM is launching a suite of Buy-out Aware funds for pension schemes looking to move to buy-out. (This occurs when an insurer takes over responsibility from the trustees and sponsor of a pension fund for meeting the pension liabilities.) Schemes invest in a bespoke blend of LGIM corporate bond and liability matching funds, and LGIM leverages its expertise across LDI, Active Fixed Income, Index, and managing insurance assets generally. The funds have three principal objectives: to close the gap between a pension scheme's current assets and the cost of buy-out; to better match any changes in the buy-out cost; and to lower the transaction cost at the point of buy-out, and for a buy-out with L&G retirement, at a default transaction cost of zero.
