Webinar: What could a peak in interest rates mean for DB pension schemes?


We are delighted to share our latest webinar on UK interest rates and their impact on defined benefit (DB) pension schemes.


This webinar features a panel of LGIM’s in-house experts who share their insights and analysis on the latest market developments and trends.

In particular, the webinar focuses on the following topics:

  • Whether the current UK rate hiking cycle could potentially be nearing an end and its implications for DB schemes, including whether this could be an opportune time lock in today’s improved funding levels and prepare for either self-sufficiency or an insurance solution
  • The key market events in November that could affect rates, such as the Monetary Policy Committee meeting, the Autumn statement, and expected 2024 gilt issuance, alongside the potential market impact of less predictable events, including politics
  • The role of credit in portfolios as schemes progress along their funding journey; in particular how well-funded schemes might look to construct buyout-ready portfolios, to invest 'like an insurer' while they prepare for buyout, and to access credit in a capital-efficient manner
