Prudential Insurance Company of America (Prudential) completed a longevity reinsurance transaction with Pension Insurance Corporation, a specialty insurer of defined benefit pensions.

The transaction is the second Prudential has engaged in with Pension Insurance Corporation and covers longevity risk associated with pension liabilities of £1.6 billion (approximately $2.3 billion) for pensioners across a block of 74 pension schemes.

"Longevity reinsurance continues to be an important part of U.K. insurers’ risk management strategies," says Bill McCloskey, vice president, longevity reinsurance at Prudential. "We’re pleased to have the opportunity to work again with Pension Insurance Corporation so soon after our initial collaboration in April of this year. We look forward to continuing to expand our strategic partnerships with insurers, like Pension Insurance Corporation, as we create retirement security for U.K. pensioners."
