With many schemes already hedging interest rate and inflation risks, what is the next stage in the evolution of your investment strategy towards your de-risking endgame?

Evolving your de-risking strategy to include longevity hedges and transitioning to assets that are more cash flow aware can help you to reach your endgame with more certainty. It may also provide greater value for money and flexibility compared to conventional insurance buy-in solutions which do not provide the same features as a complete buy-out of your liabilities.

With input from industry experts, we have also developed the concept of ‘LE01’ to help schemes to understand the impact of a sustained change in future longevity improvements.

Important information

The value of investments and any income from them will fluctuate and is not guaranteed (this may be partly due to exchange rate fluctuations). Investors may not get back the full amount invested. Past performance is not a guide to future performance.

Derivatives may be used to generate returns as well as to reduce costs and/or the overall risk of the portfolio. Using derivatives can involve a higher level of risk. A small movement in the price of an underlying investment may result in a disproportionately large movement in the price of the derivative investment.

Investments in bonds are affected by interest rates and inflation trends which may affect the value of the portfolio.

The investment manager may invest in instruments which can be difficult to sell when markets are stressed.

Where leverage is used through the use of swaps and other derivative instruments, this can increase the overall volatility. Any event that adversely affects the value of an investment would be magnified if leverage is employed by the portfolio and losses would be greater than if leverage were not employed.

A credit default swap (CDS) provides a measure of protection against defaults of debt issuers but there is no assurance their use will be effective or will have the desired result.
