Understanding the risk associated with Defined Benefit transfer advice

We provide unique insight into the risks associated with transfer advice by combining an in depth understanding of loss assessment with our knowledge of the wider pensions industry.

There are many reasons why advising firms want to better understand the extent to which they are exposed to financial losses associated with historic pension transfer advice.

Getting to grips with this risk is very difficult because it depends both on the extent to which compliant advice has been given and on the size of the potential redress payment.  Whilst advising firms may be able to take a view on the risk of advice being found unsuitable, they will typically not have the pensions or redress background to take a view on potential compensation.

OAC Redress Solutions apply an actuarial approach to help you understand the factors that affect the potential magnitude of redress payments.  We can work with you to identify key features in a particular book of business which may increase or reduce potential risk.

Understanding redress risk

We increasingly find that our clients want to understand the risk associated with Defined Benefit transfer advice.

This might be because they need to demonstrate an understanding of the risk to their PI insurers or regulators, or it might be required as part of the corporate governance process.  Equally, firms may be looking to acquire a book of business and want to understand their exposure to risk.
