Legal & General Assurance Society Limited (“Legal & General”) today announces that it has completed a £925 million Assured Payment Policy (APP) transaction with the Legal & General Group UK Pension and Assurance Fund (the “Fund”), securing the cashflows to support benefit payments payable to approx. 2,000 retired and 2,800 deferred members of the pension fund.
This is the largest APP transaction completed to date and is Legal & General’s third APP transaction. Legal & General launched the innovative solution as part of a wider £1.1 billion transaction with the AIB Group UK Pension Scheme in December 2019.
As a result of this transaction, Legal & General’s total APP transaction volumes now exceed £1.5bn in value.
This transaction also marks the insurer’s second such deal with a Legal & General pension scheme, following a £400 million APP transaction with the Legal & General Group UK Senior Pension Scheme in December 2020.Source: Legal & General
