Legal & General is a leader in Pension Risk Transfer with over 35 years of experience globally, servicing over a million annuitants. Building on our global success, we established our Pension Risk Transfer platform in the US in 2015. The business has grown steadily and in 2022 we eclipsed $2 billion in premium written.
At Legal & General Retirement America (LGRA), our purpose is to secure the retirement of the people we serve and positively impact our communities. We are passionate about what we do and how we do it. This means working with pace and energy to reach our goals and challenging ourselves to achieve more. Our goal is to build a unique environment where balance between work and life is possible.
Team and Role Overview
LGRA's PRT pricing team is composed of actuaries at all levels from recent hires to industry veterans. Our team is seeking candidates looking to grow and develop in a new role. Candidates who succeed in the role quickly learn complex actuarial models, collaborate well in a fast-paced work environment, and diligently deliver timely analysis despite ambiguity and obstacles.
This role has two principal functions: transaction pricing and post-sale support.
For transaction pricing, you'll partner with three to five actuaries and use proprietary actuarial software and mortality models to analyze request for proposals (RFP) from de-risking pension plans. You'll evaluate risks, model annuity liabilities, and efficiently determine pricing and risk measures.
Post-sale support includes transaction trueups for premium and interest adjustments, and benefit calculations as deferred participants annuitize. During post-sale support, you'll work in a cross-functional role with individuals across multiple teams, learn defined benefit plan provisions, and understand pricing risks from a new perspective.
