Having read the lastest trustee report the matching assets have gone up by 47.2% and the return-seeking assets by 17.4%. Sounds quite good considering all the doom and gloom! And they say assets increase when money is paid in which means contributions from you and RM. And of course contributions from the Post Office section stopped from March 2017. And of course will stop completely when our plan is closed next year. But surely once no new money is being paid in,the scheme is even more reliant on good use of the existing money! Isn't it best to fund a pension which is still paying out and will be for decades than mothball for future contributions? Obvious RM don't want the risk but I wonder what would have happened if instead of closing to new members from 2008 and also having a more financial sazzy team onboard how the DB scheme would have looked like today?
