Conference Overview

2023 is expected to be an extremely busy and exciting year for the pension risk transfer market. Following an eventful 2022, many pension schemes emerged with substantially improved funding levels and demand for de-risking solutions has surged. This, combined with the fallout from the liquidity crisis, has led to some fascinating dynamics which will characterise the year ahead. This conference will deliver detailed analysis of the latest developments, trends and innovations.

Join us in April for this highly regarded conference and annual gathering point for the pension risk transfer community. Last year’s event sold out in record time, attracting over three hundred attendees from fourteen countries, and we advise booking early to be sure of your place.

Please request the programme for further details.


The 2023 programme features thirteen speakers who have not spoken at any of our previous bulk annuity conferences and eight who are making a welcome return. To have so many new speakers the twentieth time we have held the event is testimony to the continued growth and vibrancy of the market. We are delighted to welcome senior representatives from:
