US PRT Market Expected to Close Largest Q1 on Record with $6 Billion

US PRT market continues to exhibit year-over-year growth

STAMFORD, CT / May 16, 2023 / Legal & General Retirement America (LGRA), a leading provider of pension risk solutions in the US, today released its Q1 2023 Pension Risk Transfer (PRT) Monitor.

The Monitor reported the first quarter is expected to finish strong with around $6 billion in total market volume and surpass last year’s record of $5.3 billion. It was the largest first quarter on record, starting off another strong year for the PRT market.

The first half of 2023 may also set another record with an estimated $23 billion in transactions – compared to the past H1 record of $17.6 billion in 2022.

“While the first quarter is generally quieter than the rest of the year, the fact that we’re seeing an increase in Q1 volume year-over-year demonstrates the consistent growth of the US PRT market as a whole. It’s an exciting time for the industry as de-risking solutions continue to gain traction with plan sponsors.” said Sheena McEwen, VP, Head of Distribution at Legal & General Retirement America.
