“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.”
“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.”
“I enjoy working with PSGS and we have a very positive relationship. I was new to pensions and found them very helpful.”
“In any major corporate transaction, time is of the essence. PSGS' 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.”
“PSGS offered the right support at very short notice, at reasonable cost, when we really needed it”
