LONDON (Reuters) - The HSBC Bank (UK) pension scheme has signed a deal with The Prudential Insurance Company of America to insure around 7 billion pounds of pensioner liabilities.

The swap transaction is the second biggest carried out with a British pension scheme, HSBC said on Tuesday, and will insure against the risk that the scheme’s members or their named beneficiaries live longer than expected.

The Prudential Insurance Company of America is a subsidiary of Prudential Financial (PRU.N).
