This new HSBC deal is the first that sees a bank offloading the longevity risk associated with its pension plan members, which could suggest a broadening of appeal for these deals.

The longevity swap and risk transfer transaction have been structured as an insurance contract, utilising an HSBC-owned captive insurance vehicle domiciled in Bermuda and onwards reinsurance to PICA. The captive allowed HSBC to directly access the longevity reinsurance market which should result in substantial savings for the bank.

Partner Gary Harris led this transaction, with assistance from Partner Brad Adderley and Associate Shannon Cann.
