The U.S. pension risk transfer market has steadily expanded over the past several years. According to the Secure Retirement Institute (formerly LIMRA SRI), the number of single premium buy-out sales contracts have more than doubled over the last several years—from 217 in 2013 to 488 in 2018. With much of the growth coming from mid-sized companies, SRI expects the number of new contracts to surpass 500 by the end of 2019 with sales in the $20-$25 billion range.
