“Wish I'd had the opportunity to do the Trustee training course sooner! ”
“Excellent service - as expected and why PSGS was chosen.”
“Their pragmatic approach helps with quick and easy decision making. Another approach might have made things more difficult.”
“Clare Owen has been a really excellent scheme secretary”
“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.”
“So much more proactive than the previous company. On the ball - thinking in advance of things needing doing - very proactive.”
Alex deals mainly with ongoing schemes and is a member of our management board.
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.
He has dealt with most circumstances and many industry sectors, including: regulatory bodies, leisure, education, defence, media & technology, automotive & rail, healthcare, manufacturing, publishing, pharmaceuticals, housing associations and legal firms.
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.
