20140052670 | PENSION FUND SYSTEMS - There is provided a computer-implemented method of projecting the future cash flows of a pension scheme, comprising: receiving data representative of the members of the pension scheme; receiving data representative of a mortality assumption; calculating, using data processing apparatus, for each pension scheme member, a projection of the future cash flow liabilities of the pension scheme to that member on the basis of the pension scheme member data and by applying the mortality assumption data to the pension scheme member data; and generating, using data processing apparatus, data representative of a projected liability cash flow of the pension scheme to all of its members by aggregating the liabilities to each member. | 02-20-2014 |

20100131425 | Pension Fund Systems - There is provided a computer-implemented method of projecting the future cash flows of a pension scheme, comprising: receiving data representative of the members of the pension scheme; receiving data representative of a mortality assumption; calculating, using data processing apparatus, for each pension scheme member, a projection of the future cash flow liabilities of the pension scheme to that member on the basis of the pension scheme member data and by applying the mortality assumption data to the pension scheme member data; and generating, using data processing apparatus, data representative of a projected liability cash flow of the pension scheme to all of its members by aggregating the liabilities to each member. | 05-27-2010 |

20100121785 | Pension Fund Systems - There is provided a method of securitizing a pension fund associated with a pension scheme, comprising: calculating, using data processing apparatus, the expected liabilities of a pension scheme to at least a portion of its members taking into account an expected mortality of the scheme members; issuing from a securities issuing entity a financial instrument which undertakes to pay to an investor a cash flow according to a payment schedule, said expected liabilities being establishing as the initial payment schedule of a financial instrument; exchanging financial instrument with assets held by pension fund; and supporting the securities issuing entity in issuing the financial instrument by providing risk capital to the securities issuing entity; wherein the risk capital is initially provided by at least three separate equity investor entities. One of the equity investor entities may be the corporate sponsor of the pension scheme. Alternatively the risk capital is initially provided by the corporate sponsor of the pension scheme. | 05-13-2010 |

20100121784 | Pension Fund Systems - The invention provides a computer implemented method of establishing a longevity financial instrument, the method comprising: establishing, using computing apparatus, a set of parameters determining payment amounts to be made according to a payment schedule for the financial instrument such that the payment amounts relate to the future liabilities of a pension scheme to at least a portion of its members. The parameters may determine the payment amounts to match the a calculation of the future liabilities of the pension scheme to at least a portion of its members, taking into account the actual cumulative mortality experience of the pension scheme membership. The various embodiments of the method provide a number of longevity financial instruments that have different payment schedules that are advantageously arranged to match different risk profiles and can be used to satisfy pension scheme sponsors having different risk appetites. The invention also provides methods of issuing longevity financial instruments established thus, and providing such longevity financial instruments to investors. The invention also provides financial instruments thus established and issued. | 05-13-2010 |

20100121783 | Pension Fund Systems - There is provided a computer-implemented method of estimating a capital reserve requirement to cover the longevity risk exposure of a financial instrument in the case of a future longevity shock, the financial instrument undertaking to pay to an investor sums according to a payment schedule of amounts arranged to match with the future cash flow obligations of a pension scheme to at least a portion of its members. The method comprises: (a) calculating, using computing apparatus, an expected payment schedule of the financial instrument by calculating what the cash flow obligations of the pension scheme to its relevant members would be in the case of an expected longevity scenario for the pension scheme membership occurring; (b) calculating, using computing apparatus, a present value of the financial instrument in the case of a stressed longevity scenario for the pension scheme membership in which a longevity-related shock to the expected longevity scenario of the pension scheme membership occurs; and (c) calculating, using computing apparatus and using the calculations of the expected payment schedule and a present value of the financial instrument in the case of a stressed longevity scenario, an estimate of the longevity capital reserve required to ensure that the future cash flow obligations of the financial instrument would be covered in the event that the stressed longevity scenario were to occur. | 05-13-2010 |

20090037258 | Pension Fund Systems - A method, for use for example in pension scheme defeasance, comprises providing to an entity a financial instrument which undertakes to pay to the entity, at regular points in time within a specified duration, sums according to a schedule of payment amounts associated with the financial instrument, the scheduled payment amounts being arranged to match with the expected cash flow obligations of a pension scheme to its members. At a re-set point in time the schedule of payment amounts is re-set such that the entity will receive an adjusted payment amount calculated to be the aggregate of nominal cash flows to be paid to the pension scheme members adjusted to take into account the actual cumulative mortality experience of the pension scheme prior to the re-set point in time. Calculations for carrying out the method may be made using a data processing system. | 02-05-2009 |
