Client feedback


​I would recommend them to anyone - I have dealt with a number of other independent trustee firms and would rate PSGS as the best. We are very happy with Mark and the service we get.
Julia Morton,

In any major corporate transaction, time is of the essence. PSGS's pragmatic commercial approach helped us manage the pensions aspects of our group re-structure to ensure a positive outcome for all parties.

The work that has been done has been delivered beyond expectations.

​Their pragmatic approach helps with quick and easy decision making. Another approach might have made things more difficult.

Role

Abi is a member of our specialist Pension Protection Fund (PPF) team.

Background & experience

Abi started in the pensions industry in documentation services at a large insurance company in 1999 before moving into trusteeships at a leading law firm.

Abi has previously worked on a wide variety of pension schemes and has experience in providing secretarial services to ongoing schemes, managing scheme closures and winding up both fully funded and underfunded pension schemes.

Abi joined us in 2014. She is an experienced project manager and specialises in managing schemes through PPF assessment. She understands buy out considerations for benefit and data reviews and the revisions needed to investment strategy to de-risk in order to protect the possibility of buying out benefits above PPF levels.

Outside of work Abi enjoys spending time with her basset hound. She also overcame her fear of heights after paragliding in New Zealand.

Qualifications: BA (Hons) English Degree, Post Graduate Publishing Diploma.
