“The work that has been done has been delivered beyond expectations.”
“So much more proactive than the previous company. On the ball - thinking in advance of things needing doing - very proactive.”
“Ian has added more value than we thought he would at the start… which shows it pays to go with someone who is doing the job of a professional trustee as their bread and butter.”
“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.”
“PSGS offered the right support at very short notice, at reasonable cost, when we really needed it”
“They have helped us save much more and created a cohesive plan to de-risk whilst building an integrated pension team.”
Chris is chair of three trustee boards and sits on two others. He also spends part of his time at BAE Systems in their pensions department.
Chris has been involved in the pensions industry for many years, starting in 1973 at Prudential as an actuarial trainee in their pensions division.
In the mid eighties he moved to what later became Aon Hewitt, where he fulfilled a wide range of senior roles. These included client management, divisional director and scheme actuary appointments.
Chris joined us in 2011. Throughout his pensions career as actuary and chair of trustees, he is most proud of resolving a very contentious issue between a sponsoring company and trustee board in connection with the interpretation of the scheme’s rules. It was a long running and difficult matter involving conflicts of interest, inadequate records, significant amounts of money and conflicting legal opinions.
Qualifications: Mathematics degree, Fellow of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (FIA).
