“PSGS offered the right support at very short notice, at reasonable cost, when we really needed it”
“Very broad, comprehensive trustee training course covering a wide range of topics. Excellent!”

“Excellent service - as expected and why PSGS was chosen.”
“PSGS were overall more professional than others.”
“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. ”
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.
