So much for the Fed's Powell saying yesterday that "it's only soft inflation." Don't think the bond market believes him, going by todays actions on both sides of the Atlantic.

IC are flagging potential benefit to life insurers from the UK having more flexibility in application of EU Solvency II (SII) rules post Brexit. They expect few deviations as SII is embedded in many company processes but flag some of the impacts of SII on life Cos. Which may be relaxed. The “risk margin” requires then to reinsure tail risk for life policyholders to cover costs if life expectancy exceeds estimated which impacts industry profits by 9Bn pa. The "matching adjustment rule" is restrictive re investment types Insurers can hold, and limits areas such as green tech, infrastructure and certain types of corporate debt. If these rules were relaxed M&G book value is expected to increase 12%. Aviva and L&G also expected to benefit, but impact not stated.

Hi everyone, My mate Peter @Conkers3 and myself did a ‘Twin Petes Investing’ Podcast last week and part of our discussion includes the outlook for Insurance Stocks like LGEN, particularly with Premium Rates rising. As always we also chatted about loads of other Stocks and Ideas for research and a fair bit of educational stuff with regards to Investing and Portfolio Management. We also start off with quite a bit about the overall Markets and where they are most likely heading. Anyway, if you use Youtube, Apple, Audioboom, Overcast, Google+ or Spotify you can find it under the 'Conkers Corner' Channel (you want Podcast TPI 42) and you can find it on Soundcloud at the link below. I hope you enjoy it and find it useful, we try to keep them light and they are totally unscripted, not like all the stuffy financial fodder you are probably more used to !! Cheers, WD @wheeliedealer hTTps://soundcloud.com/user-479955511/conkers3-wheeliedealer-42-1400-return-pton-bynd-tstl-sdi-ua-rbgp-mano-duke-gaw-heiq

The increased cost on existing annuities is only if assets have to be reinvested if there's a miss match between longevity and the asset life matching that annuity Great thing about LGEN is it's a machine for creating commercial ground rents, which are the best assets to match against annuities and have almost no risk of needing to be reinvested before an annuity runs out Lower rates are of course a headwind to new annuity business and pension risk transfer - but growth is not reflected in the current share price (IMO)

The COVID deaths may have reduced liabilities but I doubt that comes close to the increased costs of providing annuities with the much lower interest rates introduced last year. When interest rates do start to rise that should give some relief for life insurers, but then the rest of the economy, especially indebted businesses, will feel the squeeze, the PPF may come under pressure if they fold.

Been an obvious consequence since the start of the pandemic - the only question is 'how much'. The answer is still evolving, but clearly going to be large.

The cost to companies of “final salary” style pension schemes could fall by as much as £60bn because of the impact of Covid-19, according to new analysis. Modelling, which quantifies the financial impact of the pandemic on company retirement schemes for the first time, suggests that pension liabilities for individual companies could fall by tens, or even hundreds of millions of pounds, as life expectancy estimates are revised down, shrinking funding holes. In the UK, about 5,300 businesses fund defined-benefit pension plans, which promise to pay secure pensions for life to about 11m members and surviving spouses. In recent years, improvements in life expectancy have added to the costs of meeting these pension pledges, which can run decades into the future. But in-depth analysis by XPS, an actuarial firm, suggested that the impact of the pandemic on the NHS and the economy would shave about seven months from the projected life expectancy of a typical 65-year-old. “This will reduce the cost of pension promises by 1.5 per cent to 3.5 per cent, depending on the membership of a scheme,” said Steve Leake, principal and actuary with XPS, which advises more than 1,100 pension schemes and their sponsoring employer.

Poor article, looks long and well researched, but they keep going on about the General Insurace and how that will affect earnings. L&G sold their GI business last January to Allianz Holdings plc (for £242m). Not even a very significant business segment anyway... around a couple of per cent of L&G's total business I'd guess.

On second thoughts I'm musing that time and a growing divi are already a given and there should actually be a reason why LGEN should top £3. Stock and sector rotation for example ahead of easing covid restrictions and post-Brexit stabilisation ? although I can't fathom the mechanics there of LGEN being a significant direct or indirect beneficiary. Should be a reasonably safe place for people to park their exuberence profits from the likes of ITM and CWR for now.

This was 312p just over a year ago. No special reason why we won't get there and more if the business keeps progressing.

I'd rather not rely on macroeconomic catalyst. What else is likely to take us above £3 ?
