The buy-in policy is in respect of Section B of the NGUKPS. The NGUKPS is a £20billion defined benefit pension scheme primarily for previous employees of the gas industry. 

This buy-in will further protect the future funding of the Scheme by reducing the potential impact of changes in life expectancy and by removing financial risks such as interest rate and inflation changes.

Laura Mason, CEO, Legal & General Retirement Institutional: "We are delighted to have been able to work with the Trustees to complete this transaction. We were pleased to have been able to leverage our existing asset management mandate with the Scheme to ensure a smooth process and provide further security to the Scheme members."
