Client feedback


​I enjoy working with PSGS and we have a very positive relationship. I was new to pensions and found them very helpful.
Bruce Allison,

Very professional and engaged service.
Danny Nussbaum,
HR Director, Volvo
I found the trustee training really beneficial, highly recommended. I am not a trustee, I represent the employer and I think it will be valuable for me in future, having a better understanding of the trustees' perspective.
Dave Strain,
Royal Yachting Association
The Trustee training was very interactive and the presenters were engaging - thank you.
Nick Marsh,

Excellent service - as expected and why PSGS was chosen.

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.
