Pension SuperFund signs up second client in £300m deal

first_img“Having submitted our first transaction to the Pension Regulator for clearance earlier this year, it is excellent to see the faith, which trustees increasingly have in our particular model of defined benefit pension consolidation.“The £300m deal will be a very fitting first addition to the SuperFund, and represents a very significant increase in funding for the members concerned.”While there is no formal framework for regulation of commercial consolidators such as the SuperFund and Clara-Pensions, both companies have been working closely with TPR and government departments to ensure they are aligned with likely future rules, expected in the forthcoming Pensions Bill 2019.Clara-Pensions has yet to announce its first transaction, but has previously stated that it is in discussions with more than 60 schemes that collectively represent £15bn in liabilities. Defined benefit (DB) consolidation vehicle The Pension SuperFund has signed an exclusivity agreement with a £300m (€328m) pension scheme, its second deal since opening for business last year.If the transaction completes, the scheme – which was not named in the announcement from the SuperFund – will transfer from its sponsor to the consolidator, subject to approval from the Pensions Regulator (TPR). The SuperFund’s first deal, with an as yet unnamed pension fund, was submitted to TPR for clearance in May, IPE understands.Luke Webster, the CEO of The Pension SuperFund, said: “The Pension SuperFund is pleased to announce that we have signed the exclusivity agreement on our second deal.last_img read more

What channel is Titans vs. Texans on today? Schedule, time for Week 17 NFL game

first_imgMORE: Watch Titans vs. Texans live with fuboTV (7-day free trial)Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson has been listed as questionable for Sunday’s matchup with a back injury. Watson has been terrific for Houston this season, throwing for 3,852 yards, 26 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. He’s also dazzled with his rushing attack as he’s gained 413 yards on the ground and ran in another seven touchdowns. The Titans saw a resurgence midway through the season after benching quarterback Marcus Mariota in favor of Ryan Tannehill. Tennessee went on to win six of its next seven games, but has since cooled down after dropping its last two games. Houston and Tennessee met just recently in Week 15 which saw the Texans eke out a 24-21 win in Nashville. A win by the Titans would almost guarantee a matchup with the Chiefs in the wild-card round at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City. Houston would then host the Bills in the other AFC wild-card game.Here’s everything you need to know to watch the Titans vs. Texans game on Sunday, including kickoff time, TV channels and a full Week 17 NFL schedule.MORE: NFL playoff clinching scenarios for Week 17What channel is Titans vs. Texans on today?TV channel (national): CBSTV channel (Nashville): WTVFTV channel (Houston): KHOULive stream: fuboTV (7-day free trial)The Titans vs. Texans game will be shown on CBS to a majority of viewers across the country.
