Welcome to Willis Towers Watson 2019 De-risking Report. 2019 is both the 10th anniversary of the first longevity swap and the 20th anniversary of the first buy-ins. Will we see more innovation in 2019 - perhaps the first deal for a commercial consolidator? In this report, our experts look back at learnings from 2018 and predict the key themes in the longevity hedging and bulk annuity markets over the next year.

Our 2019 De-risking Report is intended to help those pension schemes who are considering hedging through a bulk annuity or a longevity swap understand the current landscape of the insurance industry.
