perspective and the buy-out process
Managing Deeds in the Buy-out Process
In order to prepare for buy-out, one vital consideration is the quality and accuracy of the pension scheme’s deeds and accompanying documentation. Using Perspective to scrutinise and collate complex historical deeds will potentially reduce the cost of the transaction, limit the number of exclusions and make the scheme more attractive to the insurers.
Perspective can identify issues which need to be considered and resolved before the scheme goes to buy-out. This will enable the trustees and lawyers of the scheme to be suitably prepared for a speedy and effective buy-out.
In addition, the lawyers tasked with producing the benefit spec and those carrying out the due diligence for the insurers can focus on the many complex issues which will need thorough analysis, rather than collating, searching and wading through incoherent documents in various formats.
Ultimately, in a market with capacity issues, freeing up the lawyers’ time to carry out more transactions will be of significant benefit to the entire industry.
