Client feedback


PSGS was chosen because of their knowledge of the subject and awareness of our particular schemes.
George Batho ,
Trustee, Lansing Linde
When requesting information by email, I have noticed that there is 'out of hours activity' to answer me. I regard this as a stand out 'above and beyond' - impressed.
They deliver above expectation when the scheme has a particular challenge.

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.
