The missing link in understanding pensions risk

Once you fully understand your longevity risk, and how it compares to your other risks, you can make better decisions about how to manage it. This is where our unique tool, LCP Life Analytics, can help by measuring how much longevity risk you are running in your pension scheme.

Do you know how much longevity risk your pension scheme is running?

Click START to answer three simple questions about your scheme to find out if you're thinking about longevity risk in the right way.


How we can help

By analysing your pension scheme liabilities at an individual member level, LCP Life Analytics provides a tailored longevity ‘Value at Risk’ for your scheme. This longevity risk measure can be readily integrated with your investment risks to give you the complete picture of the risks faced by your scheme.

The longevity risk can be measured over any relevant time horizon (such as a 10 year journey plan) and at any risk level (eg a 1-in-20 year event).
