“Nearly half (44%) of FTSE 350 DB pension schemes are now in surplus and 90% of companies could pay off their IAS19 deficit with less than six months earnings, according to analysis by Hymans Robertson in its annual FTSE 350 Pensions Analysis.
As the trend for consolidation gathers pace, the report also found that a significant number of companies could immediately move to a commercial consolidator or take advantage of strong pricing in the risk transfer market. 12% of the FTSE 350 are already sufficiently well-funded that they could buy out today without any cash injection. A further 9% could transfer their pension scheme into a commercial consolidator, achieving a clean break for the employer, with a cash top-up of less than one month’s earnings.”
