“I enjoy working with PSGS and we have a very positive relationship. I was new to pensions and found them very helpful.”
“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 was very interactive and the presenters were engaging - thank you.”
“Ever increasing regulation has placed a heavy burden on trustees both in terms of time and the risk of non-compliance. PSGS has the experience and the resources to help trustees manage these burdens.”
“They deliver above expectation when the scheme has a particular challenge.”
“The work that has been done has been delivered beyond expectations.”
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!
