Client feedback


Gillian and Curtis provide an excellent service to the trustees. They are approachable and possess a huge amount of knowledge. Everything appears to work smoothly which I am sure is due to the immense amount of work they do in the background to ensure all paperwork is available and up to date.
Ian Woods,
KGPT trustees
The trustee training course lecturers' explanations and willingness to answer questions were most valuable - even silly ones - although I have learnt there are no 'silly questions' that trustees should ask.

The Trustee training was very interactive and the presenters were engaging - thank you.
Nick Marsh,
Comet Pension Scheme
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.
Ray Pygott,
Partner at KPMG LLP
Wish I'd had the opportunity to do the Trustee training course sooner!
Stuart Atkins,
Raleigh UK Ltd
Ever increasing regulation has placed a heavy burden on trustees both in terms of time and the risk of non-compliance. PSGS has the experience and the resources to help trustees manage these burdens.

About Punter Southall Governance Services

PSGS are the trusteeship and pension governance experts. We share our extensive knowledge and experience and find really smart solutions to benefit our clients.


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 44 and are one of the largest professional trustee firms 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 230 clients covering over 440,000 members and £35bn 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.

We are members of The Association of Corporate Trustees (TACT), Faculty and Institute of Actuaries, NAPF, Association of Professional Pension Trustees (APPT) and Pensions Management Institute (PMI).

Our team

Our widely experienced team includes - including qualified actuaries, accredited mediators, investment advisers, administrators and pension consultants.
