As DB pension schemes mature, their liabilities can grow in size and complexity, which often causes pressure on funding levels to increase.

A liability driven investment (LDI) solution from Legal & General Investment Management enables you to retain your allocation to growth, while seeking to reduce risk. With unrivalled scale and experience in the UK pension market, Legal & General Investment Management offers pooled and segregated investment solutions that are specifically designed to hedge interest rate and inflation risk.

And we also offer solutions that hedge currency risk for clients, and solutions that seek to offer protection from falling equity markets.

LGIM has an unrivalled scale and experience in the UK pension market. We were one of the first managers to offer LDI strategies.
