The funding level of the plan fell from 108.7% as at 31/10/2021 to 99.2% by 31/10/2022, due to losses incurred in the investments that the HP Plan holds. However, the Trustee remains confident that the Plan is able to pay pensions and benefits as they fall due. The Trustee continues to work with its advisers to regularly monitor the funding and investments of the Plan.
