Client feedback


The Trustee training was very interactive and the presenters were engaging - thank you.
Nick Marsh,

As a pensions novice, I felt that the trustee training course gave me a good grounding.
Will Court
Excellent and comprehensive training course. I will definitely refer to what I've learned and received.

In my experience, not all professional trustees are able to cope with tricky or potentially confrontational situations. I find PSGS has massive experience in getting involved, earning the respect of others and resolving such issues. They get stuck in – they are a first rate team.

​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.

PSGS offered the right support at very short notice, at reasonable cost, when we really needed it

Role

Claire acts as chairman and trustee for a portfolio of ongoing schemes.

Background & experience

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.

Qualifications: LLB. Hons Qualified Solicitor.
