The Sunday Telegraph reports that C&W; may agree a deal to offload its scheme, which has 15,000 members, in order to demerge its British and international businesses.
According to the Telegraph, a number of pension buyout groups are currently in discussions with the company about taking on the fund.
John Ralfe, a pension consultant to investment bank RBC Capital Markets, told the newspaper that the size of the scheme would test the capacity of the market.
“It could be a matter of getting together several buyout partners,” he commented.

The Europe, Asia & US division provides enterprise and carrier solutions to telecoms service users in these regions, as well as providing broadband services in the UK.
