Pension Risk Transfer Report – May 2022
Welcome to Eckler’s 2022 Canadian Pension Risk Transfer (PRT) Report. While 2021 was certainly a year of ups and downs, for the Canadian pension risk transfer (PRT) market the results were all up.
Now in our fifth year, we are taking this opportunity to “refresh” our approach. While the report continues to provide a practical compendium of information about the ever-evolving PRT market in Canada, we are excited to announce that throughout the year we will also launch a series of articles, PRT Insights, that will take a deeper dive into timely and relevant topics for plan sponsors, insurers, and other market participants.
Whether insurer or plan sponsor, Eckler’s Canadian PRT Report and our periodic PRT Insights will continue to provide information and critical observations to support informed decisions.
To keep you up-to-date on the PRT market players and help you make sense of the PRT terminology, we have also included:
• Historical transactions: A list of publicly announced large ($250M+) and jumbo ($750M+) annuity and longevity risk transfer transactions
• Insurer fact sheets: A quick reference guide to the insurers currently active in the Canadian PRT market
• A PRT glossary: Definitions of key terms
Wherever you are on the de-risking journey, Eckler’s 2022 Canadian PRT Report and our upcoming PRT Insights articles provide the information and critical insights you need to make informed decisions along the way.
