“Very professional and engaged service.”
“PSGS was chosen because of their knowledge of the subject and awareness of our particular schemes.”
“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.”
“We are extremely pleased with the appointment we made. The way Ian reacts to us and works with us is brilliant. We are very happy.”
“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.”
“I enjoy working with PSGS and we have a very positive relationship. I was new to pensions and found them very helpful.”
Claire acts as chairman and trustee for a portfolio of ongoing schemes.
Claire started her career as a solicitor in the late 1980s specialising in company commercial work. She moved out of private practice to join Hogg Robinson Financial Services to start her pensions career in 1992.
HR Trustees was established shortly after and Claire has been at the heart of it ever since. Her experience was initially in winding up schemes. She drew on her legal background to manage litigation cases brought against previous advisers and trustees and deal with various legal issues.
Claire now focuses on ongoing appointments for defined contribution (DC) and defined benefit (DB) schemes, acting as sole trustee, as part of a trustee board or as Chair. Her experience is very broad and includes funding negotiations, scheme mergers, investment strategy and scheme closures.
Despite not being a regular cyclist, Claire survived her first cycling holiday in the not so flat Switzerland. She also took part in the ‘MoonWalk’ power walking challenge to raise money for Breast Cancer Research.
