2018 has been the biggest ever year for bulk annuities, and this growth is only set to continue. But trustees looking to become involved in the booming market must take into account market pricing, where deals are closing and capital adequacy. Altus consultant Rory Gravatt believes that the defined benefit superfund capital adequacy requirements will in fact limit what bulk annuity providers can do. Despite these concerns, the bulk annuity market is forecast to continue expanding. Altus principal consultant Will Watling is looking forward to seeing whether new bulk annuity insurers come to market in the near future, and what effect they will have on the consolidators.
