Colin takes a leading role in the preparation of schemes for the bulk annuity market and the execution of bulk annuity transactions. Colin's longstanding and regular contact with insurers allows him to understand what attracts insurers to a case in order to obtain the best terms for his clients.
Colin has over 15 years of pensions advisory experience and around 50 bulk annuity transactions to his name so he has seen most of the different journeys that can be taken to reach buy-out. Colin has successfully executed many annuity transactions for schemes including a £100 million pensioner only buy-in transaction and a large number of buy-outs for small to medium sized schemes. He works closely with a variety of insurers and achieves very high closure rates on the cases that he takes to the bulk annuity market.
