DB End Gauge.

Our monthly index provides an estimate of the average time for UK pension schemes to reach a sufficient level of funding to buyout their liabilities with an insurance company.

As of 30 November 2021, the DB End Gauge index shows the average time for UK pension schemes to be able to buyout their liabilities is 11.4 years.

Changes in the index over time will illustrate the positive and negative impacts of various factors on pension scheme journeys and highlight the need for the strategy to incorporate monitoring and trigger points for actions to ensure that schemes remain on course for their endgame.

The index has been relatively volatile over 2021, as the chart below shows. The index continued to increase in the month to 30 November 2021, mainly due to decreases in gilt and swap yields and an increase in inflation expectations over the period.
