Highlights

Transaction completed in just three months

The buy-in contract was signed just three months after initially coming to market, which allowed the Scheme to lock in to favourable pricing and market conditions

Ability to cover further tranches of members under the same contract

This structure allows for future transactions to happen very quickly, with minimal additional legal work required

Rothesay’s price-lock

From the outset, we locked our premium to a subset of the scheme’s assets so that the Trustees could be sure the transaction economics would not change over a volatile period in global markets
