The Trustee Training course is very good. Excellent coverage of material presented in an easy-to-digest manner and quality of presentation by both presenters.

PSGS was chosen because of their knowledge of the subject and awareness of our particular schemes.
George Batho ,
Trustee, Lansing Linde
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.

Role

Colin acts as professional trustee to both defined benefit (DB) and defined contribution (DC) clients.

Background & experience

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!
