Tranche 14 analysis: A review of defined benefit pension schemes with valuation dates between September 2018 and September 2019 (Tranche 14 or T14)
Annual funding statement analysis (Tranche 14)
The Pensions Regulator (TPR)
May 2019 United Kingdom Funding and Minimum Funding Requirement, Regulatory Bodies - the Pensions Regulator, Scheme Issues & Trends
TPR has published its analysis of the expected positions of DB pension schemes within Tranche 14 with valuation dates between 22 September 2018 and 21 September 2019. The analysis is intended to provide further context to its  2019 Annual Funding Statement, which was published in March. According to the analysis, TPR's modelling indicates that schemes undertaking valuations at 31 March 2019 will find that their funding levels and deficits have marginally improved in comparison with those reported three years ago, but that deficits have not generally improved to the extent that the Regulator would have expected over the inter-valuation period.
