UK Insurer Legal & General Picks Amazon for Blockchain Pensions

bitcoinnews

3mon ago

Reuters reports that UK insurance firm Legal & General has settled on Amazon as its client to work on what it says will be the first corporate pension blockchain system.

Amazon Web Services (AWS) will launch a managed blockchain system by Legal & General to manage bulk annuities. This involves the insurer assuming the control of the defined benefit or final salary pension schemes from their clients.

Legal & General Reinsurance CEO Thomas Olunloyo explained why they chose blockchain technology in their pension solutions:

“[blockchain suits] the long-term nature of annuities business as it allows data and transactions to be signed, recorded and maintained in a permanent and secure nature over the lifetime of these contracts, which can span over 50 years.”

For now, Legal & General will only apply the platform for bulk annuity clients outside of its chief focus within United Kingdom and the US, although sources have said that these two markets could also benefit in the future.

AWS GM for Amazon Managed Blockchain at AWS Rahul Pathak described the deal as allowing the insurer to “focus on building new business… instead of dealing with the challenges of keeping a blockchain network up and running”.

Amazon’s managed blockchain services only went live early last month, as reported by Bitcoin News.
