“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. ”
“So much more proactive than the previous company. On the ball - thinking in advance of things needing doing - very proactive.”
“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.”
“Where PSGS are appointed to act in conjunction with an existing body of trustees, we have found that they are quickly able to fit in well and gain the trust and respect of their co-trustees. ”
“The Trustee Training course is very good. Excellent coverage of material presented in an easy-to-digest manner and quality of presentation by both presenters. ”
“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.”
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?
