With Profits Section

Important Covid-19 update - click here.

The With Profits Section of the Cheviot pension was set up by the Cheviot Trust as a money purchase arrangement. With effect from July 2014, new legislation re-classified the With Profits Section as a cash balance scheme. This means that it is now subject to the scheme specific funding regime.

Funding valuation and basis

  • The Scheme Actuary undertakes a valuation every three years. The last valuation was undertaken as at 31 December 2017. The valuation showed a funding level on an ongoing funding basis of around 102%. On this basis, the Trustee did not consider it necessary to require contributions from employers.
  • The valuation reflected current mortality assumptions and makes specific provision for expenses over a five-year period to the end of 2022.
  • The Actuarial Report as at 31 December 2018 is available. This showed a deterioration of the funding position following less positive returns in 2018. The funding level has improved during 2019 – see June 2019 funding update.

Investment strategy

  • The allocation to the Investment Fund (on risk assets) is 55% of Scheme assets.
  • The Trustee’s investment strategy is set out in the Statement of Investment Principles.
