Consolidation is a natural consequence in the maturing of an industry or market.

Within the UK DB pensions market there is now a spectrum of different DB consolidation options and solutions which will inevitably have an impact on the asset management industry.

This AIMSE Europe Roundtable provides an insight into two of the newer solutions gaining traction that will have an impact on the asset management industry – Commercial Consolidators known as ‘Superfunds’ and DB Master Trusts.
