Delivering Future Readiness for Insurance Carriers

Ever the double-edged sword, advances in technology have arguably driven the greatest change to the industry that insurance has ever witnessed.

LGPS Legislative Logjam

The queue is building. Apologies for the alliteration in the title, but a recent client discussion got me thinking about the huge volume of outstanding legislation, consultations, projects and guidance affecting the LGPS.

Longevity risk has historically been seen as an inherent part of running a pension scheme. But innovation in the market has changed this and getting a grip on longevity risk is no longer the preserve of large sophisticated schemes. What is longevity risk?

Financial Services or Social Services

Imagine walking into a Ford dealership, sitting in a few cars, struggling to get comfortable in the seats and being directed by the salesperson to the Volvo dealership down the road on account of their superior lumbar support!

Cloud based services are not pie in the sky

Getting information and completing transactions with a life and pensions company can be difficult. The paperwork involved, the highly personal nature of the data and, in some cases, the traditional culture of the organisations has, with the best of intentions, unfortunately created quite a bureaucracy. So much so that it can seem to customers that the life and pension sector were more focused on protecting the information than they were on protecting their customers.

Active Management and Survivorship Bias

There is a very simple and powerful argument in favour of passive management. This argument holds more broadly across asset classes, but is simplest to consider in equities, so I’ll focus there. Essentially, the combined portfolio of all active investors must aggregate back up to the market portfolio. Therefore, the average active manager should simply return passive performance, less fees and transaction costs.

Baldrick and the State Pension Age

Baldrick was famous for having one, but millions of people don’t have a plan, cunning or otherwise, when it comes to their retirement date. Or if they have a plan, they haven’t told their pension provider anything about it. Aviva’s governance reports reveal that a huge proportion of people in workplace pensions are triple defaulting. That means paying the default contribution rate, investing in the default fund and intending to retire at the default retirement age.

The debate on contingent charging for pension transfer advice refuses to go away, with one commentator branding it “the root of all transfer evil”, but is it really?The Work and Pension Committee (WPC) thinks so.
