Within our document library there are links to a number of documents that provide more details about the transfer, including the application to the High Court and the subsequent Court Hearing Order confirming approval.

You can also view the Independent Actuary’s Report, in respect of the scheme of transfer. As legally required in a transfer of this type in order to safeguard the interests of all policyholders impacted, an Independent Actuary, Ms Rosemary Commons (Willis Towers Watson) was appointed to review the terms of the transfer. The report concludes that, subject to the points listed in section 11 of her report, “There is no material adverse impact on the security of benefits for any group of policyholders as a result of the proposed Scheme; and no group of policyholders will suffer any reduction in reasonable benefit expectations as a result of the proposed Scheme”.
