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.

Role

Alex deals mainly with ongoing schemes and is a member of our management board.

Background & experience

Alex has extensive pensions experience, with more than 20 years as a professional trustee. He started at James Hay Pension Trustees in 1997 looking after executive pension schemes (SSAS, FURBS etc), then gained defined contribution (DC) experience with Winterthur Life.

Alex joined us in 2002. He acts as trustee for a range of ongoing schemes, predominantly defined benefit (DB) but also DC and hybrid. His appointments include chair of trustees, trustee board member and sole trustee.

In his spare time, Alex suffers the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune on the golf course and still plays a bit of cricket on a Sunday, provided he can be sure of a good tea.
