The BGPS remains secure

You may have recently seen articles in the press concerning a potential funding crisis for defined benefit pension schemes in the UK. This led to the Bank of England intervening in bond markets, in an effort to stabilise the market and relieve pressure on defined benefit pension schemes. We understand these reports may be a cause of concern for some pension scheme members. We would like to reassure members of the BGPS that the Board is closely monitoring the situation and the scheme maintains adequate liquidity for all of its investments.
