Aviva completes £130m full scheme buy-in with the Telereal Pension Plan

28 May 2024

Aviva has today announced the completion of a £130 million bulk purchase annuity full scheme buy-in with the Trustee of the Telereal Pension Plan1 (“Plan”). The plan is sponsored by Telereal Services Limited.

Aviva will insure the defined benefit liabilities for around 500 members, removing the investment and longevity risk. Members will see no change in their benefit entitlement as a result of the transaction.

Sean Rooney, BPA Senior Deal Manager at Aviva said: “We’re delighted the Trustee selected Aviva to secure member benefits, and we’ll continue to work closely with them to ensure a smooth transition. The process was well managed and completed quickly, thanks to all parties collaborating to reach a successful outcome. We look forward to welcoming Telereal members as Aviva customers in due course.”

Carl Clissold Chair of Trustees of the Telereal Pension Plan, said: “The Trustees are delighted to have reached this significant milestone for the Members and would like to thank all parties, including the Plan’s sponsor Telereal Services Limited, who have all collaborated in closing this transaction within a short timescale. Our work will continue as we prepare the Schemes for buy-out with a smooth transition and the delivery of Member benefits.”

Joe Hathaway, Associate Partner at Aon, said: “Achieving attractive terms for the Trustees was contingent on a quick execution and relied on all parties working extremely hard over just a few weeks. The straightforward execution offered by Aon’s Pathway service – which is specifically designed for schemes of this size – was vital in allowing us to move quickly.”
