Legal & General agrees £760m buy-in with Sanofi Pension Scheme

Legal & General Assurance Society Limited (“Legal & General”) today announces that it has agreed a £760 million buy-in with the Sanofi Pension Scheme (“the Scheme”), securing the benefits of c2,900 retirees.

Today’s transaction represents the Scheme’s first Pension Risk Transfer (PRT) transaction with Legal & General, after being a long-term asset management client.

The Trustee was advised on the transaction by Aon and legal advice was provided by CMS. Legal & General received legal advice from Macfarlanes.

It is always particularly rewarding to work with long-term clients like Sanofi and to enable them to further de-risk their Scheme. We take pride in providing certainty to trustees and members, and this agreement is another great example of our ability to support schemes at all stages of this journey.
