“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.”
“The trustee training was a very well-paced overview which gave opportunity to explore ideas and question more deeply at key points.”
“In any major corporate transaction, time is of the essence. PSGS's pragmatic commercial approach helped us manage the pensions aspects of our group re-structure to ensure a positive outcome for all parties. ”
“Excellent and comprehensive training course. I will definitely refer to what I've learned and received. ”
“PSGS offered the right support at very short notice, at reasonable cost, when we really needed it”
“They are very proactive and full of new ideas, they've brought better scheduling and better minute sets.”
