“PSGS were overall more professional than others.”
“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. ”
“I wanted to look at the effectiveness of our trustee board, so Gillian, our PSGS scheme secretary, provided their trustee self-assessment tool to help me gather thoughts and opinions from others on the board. The tool was extremely easy to use and asked all the right questions to help me collect the information I needed as Trustee Chair. It is a great example of the way PSGS shares knowledge with their clients and makes dealing with key governance issues easy. As well as enabling me to meet one of the Regulator’s 21st century trusteeship requirements, using the tool has flagged trustee training needs and ways we could improve trustee meetings further. ”
“The work that has been done has been delivered beyond expectations.”
“It’s a pleasure working with key members of the PSGS team: their experience and leadership means that they know how to get the job done, working in partnership with fellow trustees, employers and advisers to achieve the best result for members.”
“They have helped us save much more and created a cohesive plan to de-risk whilst building an integrated pension team.”
Ann co-ordinates all day-to-day activities for a range of trustee secretary appointments. She also provides support to our team of independent trustees.
Ann started her pensions career in 1972 with British Airways, where she was responsible for several key areas of administration of the Airways Pension Scheme.
In 1984, Ann joined employee benefits consultancy Elliot Associates to develop her pensions career and subsequently moved to BGJ & Co (later part of Punter Southall Limited) when it was formed in 1993. She transferred to us in 2006.
Although Ann is an experienced consultant, she has always maintained an active participation in the latest pension scheme administration requirements.
You can certainly say Ann is keen to tick a lot off her bucket list. So far she has completed the London Marathon (2010), climbed Kilimanjaro (2013) and travelled to Cambodia to support a charity school (2017). What could possibly be next?
