"The trustee has been working with our advisers over a number of years to manage risk in the plan and enhance the security of members' benefits. We are very happy to have formed this partnership with Scottish Widows and this buy-in, completed in a very short timeframe in what has been a challenging year in financial markets, is another important step in the plan's derisking journey," Andy Kieran, chairman of trustees at the Aon Retirement Plan, said in a news release.
The trustees were advised by Aon and law firm CMS Cameron McKenna Nabarro Olswang. Scottish Widows was advised by law firm Herbert Smith Freehills.
