Client feedback


We now have a very collaborative approach between trustees and employer.
Peter Millard,
Company Secretary, TRL Limited
​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.

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
