“I enjoy working with PSGS and we have a very positive relationship. I was new to pensions and found them very helpful.”
“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.”
“Highly informative. Having leading professionals deliver the TKU course really adds value.”
“PSGS offered the right support at very short notice, at reasonable cost, when we really needed it”
“PSGS were overall more professional than others.”
Chris leads our specialist Pension Protection Fund (PPF) team (HR Trustees being one of five firms on the PPF Trustee Panel).
Chris started his pensions career with us in 2000 and has been a full time professional trustee throughout this period.
Chris specialises in schemes requiring exit management services and winding up. He has experience with complex PPF entry issues and in securing greater than PPF benefits with insurance companies.
Thanks to his extensive experience of schemes going through PPF assessment, Chris is an excellent project manager and expert in governance, data and benefit reviews, investment reviews and legal reviews. He is well known for his ability to keep calm and focused during an intensive period where you have to dig up the drains!
Chris likes the outdoors and is often seen walking through fields covered in mud. He is a very keen traveller and has visited all five continents, taking lots of photos along the way on the basis a few will be good!
