PRT Interest Rate Update1,2

Competitive pricing is a key component of product success. PRT pricing is correlated with changes in high-quality corporate bond yields (consistent with how pension plan liabilities are valued for funding, accounting, etc.) and changes daily based on yields available to the issuing PRT insurer. Rate increases and spread widening drive lower PRT cost and vice versa.

Yields rose during this period, which translates to an approximately 4.0% lower PRT transaction price.

F&G PRT Team Member Spotlight:

Sharon Sutin,
AVP, Institutional Pricing Actuary

PRT is a people-based business, and we're proud of the PRT team we've built at F&G ... and are continuing to grow.  This quarter, meet Sharon Sutin, Assistant Vice President and Institutional Pricing Actuary.

Describe your role in PRT:
In my role, I focus primarily on U.S. PRT transactions for buy-outs and plan terminations. As a pricing actuary, my key responsibilities include the setting of pricing assumptions and the financial modeling of transactions. I collaborate extensively with our PRT business development team in evaluating transaction opportunities and pricing delivery, as well as with Institutional leadership on strategy and expansion in the market.

What brought you to F&G?
I spent over a decade in pension consulting services and Pension Risk Transfer, both in business development and pricing. The prospect of helping to establish another strong PRT market player and develop pricing processes from the ground up enticed me over to F&G. Entering into a new product line necessitates a start-up mentality with the agility, innovation and enthusiasm — all of which I felt was abundant on the F&G PRT team!

Favorite aspect of PRT?
What motivates me is the fact that across the market, PRT transactions enable pensioners to be financially secure. I also find the transaction environment exciting and fast paced, which pushes me every day.

How do you spend a typical Saturday?
I am an avid fan of brunch, so we usually start with a good meal and then try to spend time outdoors when the weather permits. For my family, Saturday activities often include hiking (with a toddler, this is more “walking”), checking out a farmers' market, or visiting a local restaurant or brewery.

Favorite book or podcast?
I am a fan of Conan O’Brien’s podcast “Conan Needs a Friend”. It’s a good mix of humor and real-world topics. Sometimes he interviews celebrities and other times he speaks with everyday people about their lives!
