Client feedback


Clare Owen has been a really excellent scheme secretary
​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.
Julia Morton,
Camellia plc
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.
Jonathan Williams ,
Bangor University
The team provide an excellent service with practical and commercial input that we have not found with anyone else.
Mark Culwick
When requesting information by email, I have noticed that there is 'out of hours activity' to answer me. I regard this as a stand out 'above and beyond' - impressed.
They deliver above expectation when the scheme has a particular challenge.

Role

Edwin is a hugely experienced scheme actuary, now focused on extending his professional trustee appointments.

Background & experience

Edwin began his career in 1975 with a major firm of consulting actuaries. He then spent time in the pensions department of a broking organisation. He went on to establish BGJ & Co, successfully growing this pensions and actuarial consultancy before it was acquired by Punter Southall Group in 2002.

Edwin has substantial experience of working in all aspects of pensions and with schemes of all sizes, with particular emphasis on working with advisers to achieve desired objectives for defined benefit (DB) pension schemes. He has also been closely involved in large scale administrative exercises, including outsourcing of whole pension departments.

Edwin has been a professional trustee and Director of PSGS since 2008.

Edwin is not afraid to take on a challenge. Acting as project manager, he not only successfully built a new house but also added a lake (into a hillside) in front of it.

Qualifications: Fellow of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries, BSc Hons Mathematics
