“Clare Owen has been a really excellent scheme secretary”
“PSGS were overall more professional than others.”
“In my experience, not all professional trustees are able to cope with tricky or potentially confrontational situations. I find PSGS has massive experience in getting involved, earning the respect of others and resolving such issues. They get stuck in – they are a first rate team.”
“These days, Boards need real expertise on tap (with excellent back-up) to cope with a constantly evolving and more regulated environment. PSGS is geared to delivering that.”
“Where PSGS are appointed to act in conjunction with an existing body of trustees, we have found that they are quickly able to fit in well and gain the trust and respect of their co-trustees. ”
“Wish I'd had the opportunity to do the Trustee training course sooner! ”
We seem new, but we’re not.
Our new name followed the merger in January 2018 of two long-standing firms, PS Independent Trustees and HR Trustees, collectively having been in business for over 40 years. As a firm, we’ve purposefully kept ourselves at the head of trusteeship and governance. New ideas, new solutions and new technology - that’s us.
We seem small, but we’re not.
We’re a team of 40 and are now probably the largest professional trustee firm in the UK. We’ve just been successful at keeping the personal feel we had at the very start.
Professionalism and personality have got us a long way. We currently work with over 210 clients covering over 420,000 members and £40bn in assets. From the very small (£0.5m) to the very large (£5bn), clients stay with us. They trust us to get on with the job and deliver great service, knowing we’ll be friendly too.
People are at the heart of our business – be that our team, others we work with or the members we represent. From new graduates starting their career with us to trustees with over 50 years’ experience, we’re a dynamic team that enjoys learning from and supporting each other and our clients.
We act for many pension schemes, including defined benefit (DB) and defined contribution (DC) pension schemes that are open or closed to new members, closed to future benefit accrual, winding up or merging. We work with both trust based pension schemes and contract based workplace pensions.
We believe expert financial and investment management are fundamental to the successful running of any workplace pension scheme, so we ensure we provide our clients with access to a strong team with extensive experience and a very wide range of skills.
Our widely experienced team includes - including qualified actuaries, accredited mediators, investment advisers, administrators and pension consultants.
We offer clients innovative thinking, transparency and accessibility, delivered with a personal approach and a clear commitment to professional standards.
We have offices throughout the UK.
