“I would recommend them to anyone - I have dealt with a number of other independent trustee firms and would rate PSGS as the best. We are very happy with Mark and the service we get.”
“The Trustee training was very interactive and the presenters were engaging - thank you.”
“The trustee training was a very well-paced overview which gave opportunity to explore ideas and question more deeply at key points.”
“They are very proactive and full of new ideas, they've brought better scheduling and better minute sets.”
“Their pragmatic approach helps with quick and easy decision making. Another approach might have made things more difficult.”
“Very professional and engaged service.”
Colin acts as professional trustee to both defined benefit (DB) and defined contribution (DC) clients.
Colin started his pensions career in 1975 in consultancy with Leslie & Godwin. He assisted scheme managers transition schemes from old to new code and contracted schemes out of the State Earnings Related Pension Scheme.
In 1979, he moved to Hogg Robinson Benefit Consultants. Here he undertook special pension scheme merger projects and was responsible for helping sponsors implement scheme changes to DB pension schemes.
Colin joined us in 1993 and has worked with a wide range of trustee board members and advisers. In addition to pension schemes, his trusteeships include employee benefit trusts, escrow agent and healthcare trusts. He is chair of the pension trustee board for two arrangements of £200m+.
Colin has survived parenthood and is pleased his children still speak to him after their teenage years!
