Telereal Trillium completes £130m full pension scheme buy-in

Telereal pension Commercial property investment firm Telereal Trillium, now known as TT Group, has completed a £130 million bulk purchase annuity full scheme buy-in for its pension plan.

The plan is sponsored by Telereal Services. The transaction, which was carried out by Aviva, will see that the defined benefit liabilities for around 500 members of the pension scheme are insured, removing the investment and longevity risk. The members will not see any changes in their benefit entitlement as a result of the transaction.

Carl Clissold, chair of trustees of the Telereal pension plan, said: “The trustees are delighted to have reached this significant milestone for the members and would like to thank all parties, including the plan’s sponsor Telereal Services, who have all collaborated in closing this transaction within a short timescale. Our work will continue as we prepare the schemes for buy-out with a smooth transition and the delivery of member benefits.”
